Multiple Detained After Riverfront Park Fight in Montgomery, Alabama

August 7, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Multiple individuals were apprehended on Saturday night following a brawl at Montgomery’s Riverfront Park in Alabama, as stated by authorities, reports USA TODAY.

The Montgomery Police Department swiftly responded to a disturbance at the 200 block of Coosa Street in Montgomery, Alabama, at 7 p.m., prompted by a large group engaging in a fight. Police confirmed that several individuals were taken into custody.

A video of the incident, displaying apparent racial divisions, circulated on social media on Sunday. Reports suggest that the altercation originated due to a pontoon boat obstructing the dock space reserved for parking the Harriott II Riverboat.

The video shared by Josh Moon of the Alabama Political Reporter depicts a distressing altercation involving a group of white individuals pitted against a Black dock worker.

The video, though lacking clear audio, starts with what seems to be an exchange between the Black man and one of the white individuals. Suddenly, another white man joins the fray, striking the Black man, who then retreats slightly and tosses his hat into the air.

What follows is a troubling confrontation, as several white individuals repeatedly strike the Black man.

The video reveals that some onlookers from the shore stepped in to assist the individual, with yelling, “Y’all help that brother!” One courageous Black man diving into the water from the riverboat. However, the situation escalated upon the riverboat’s approach to the dock, where further altercations erupted.

In another video posted by Lauryn Lauren, scenes depict authorities arriving at the scene promptly and detaining individuals involved in the altercation.

As of now, MPD has not disclosed the identities of the detained suspects. Charges against individuals involved in the altercation are pending.
