(CNN) -- The wife of an SUV driver who was chased on Manhattan's West Side, dragged from his car by motorcyclists and beaten, issued a statement Thursday, saying, "Our sympathies go out to the injured motorcyclist and his family. However, we were faced with a life-threatening situation, and my husband was forced under the circumstances to take the actions that he did in order to protect the lives of our entire family."
