image for Montgomery riverfront brawl: Arrest warrants issued for 3 men in massive fight at Alabama dock, police say

Arrest warrants have been issued for three men involved in the chaotic brawl at a riverfront dock in Montgomery, Alabama, on Saturday that was captured on video and involved an array of punches, a chair to the head and several people in the water.

One of those men has surrendered and is in custody, and the two others are expected to be in custody soon, Albert said.

Third-degree assault is considered a Class A misdemeanor in Alabama and is punishable by up to a year in prison.

The fight largely broke down along racial lines in a city with a fraught history of racial violence.

Police also asked that a Black man who was seen in video swinging a folding chair contact them for further questioning.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office and the local office of the FBI were all consulted on the charges, according to Albert.
