Same NYC bikers attacked a Prius in 2011 [video]

Following the recent attack on a family in an SUV by a gang of New York City motorcyclists, a new video of the same alleged group causing trouble has surfaced.

This time the new video shows the group attacking a Toyota Prius by surrounding it at an intersection, assaulting the passenger and breaking the side mirror off. It is not clear from the video if the Prius driver did anything to provoke the attack but it is clear that mob mentality is in full effect as the group of motorcyclists act as if they own the road. We can see them recklessly ignoring traffic laws by driving on the opposite side of the road as well as running several red traffic lights.

Apparently, the group of motorcyclists who go by the name of "Hollywood Stuntz" are known for their organized group rides which often result in injuries or damaged property. According to NYC Police Commissioner Ray Kelly, this year 15 people were arrested, 55 motorcycles were confiscated, and 69 summonses were issued in connection to the Hollywood Stuntz rides. NYPD also set up checkpoints at bridges and tunnels into Manhattan this year.

Unfortunately this type of behavior won't be disappearing any time soon, so hopefully the television show South Park can provide some perspective on the matter.
