Jack Price Gay Beating: Daniel Aleman, Daniel Rodriguez Arrested For Hate Crime Attack (VIDEO)

Shocking video of the brutal beating of Jack Price has been released just as news of a second arrest in the case was announced.

Daniel Rodriguez was taken into custody in Norfolk, VA Tuesday night. He had eluded police since his alleged partner in crime Daniel Aleman was arrested and charged with aggravated assault as a hate crime on Sunday.

Police say the suspects perpetrated the unconscionable beating early Friday morning after yelling anti-gay slurs at Price at a deli near his College Point home.

Price suffered a broken jaw, fractured ribs, a lacerated spleen, and the "collapse of both of his lungs." He identified his attackers before being placed in a medically-induced coma.

The video shows the men repeatedly punching and stomping Price as he tries to fend off his attackers. At one point in the video, a car that looks to be a livery taxi drives right by the assault without stopping.

After the suspects leave him bloodied in the middle of the street, the 5-foot-6, 130 pound Price can be seen miraculously stumbling away.

Aleman was being held on $20,000 bail Tuesday and charges are pending against Rodriguez.
