NEW YORK (AP) — An undercover police detective charged with gang assault in a motorcycle rally that descended into violence in New York City has been released on bail.

Wojciech Braszczok (VOY'-chehk BROOSH'-chahk) appeared in court Wednesday and was charged with gang assault. He left a Manhattan courthouse without speaking to reporters.

He posted $150,000 bond.

His attorney, John Arlia, says a video shows Braszczok was at least 12 feet away when an SUV driver was attacked.

The prosecution says the video shows Braszczok shattering the SUV's rear window, then kicking the passenger side while a 2-year-old sat in the back Sept. 29.

The defense says there already was a hole in the vehicle's back window.
