Jeremiah Mieses, known as Jay Meezee in rap circles, has been identified as the man who was allegedly hit by Alexian Lien during the terrifying road rage incident that happened in Manhattan on September 29, reports CBS Boston.
In the incident, depicted in a viral video, a group of bikers called the Hollywood Stuntz attempted to intimidate a driver, Lien, who was out for a Sunday drive with his family. It all turned ugly when Lien panicked, fearing for his family’s safety, and ran over a biker (Mieses). Mieses, according to his family, now lies in a coma in a New York hospital with numerous broken bones and possible paralysis. The rest of the gang followed the Lien for about 80 blocks until they were able to catch up with him and physically assault him.
