Two men charged in connection with a brawl at a Montgomery riverfront dock are in police custody, Alabama authorities say. A third man was also charged with third-degree assault in connection with the fight and had turned himself in earlier. Video of the incident shows the brawl escalate after a Black employee was attacked by several men, identified by authorities as White. One witness alleged in a sworn statement to police that a racial slur was used. However, Montgomery Police Chief Darryl J. Albert told CNN his department still believes the brawl was not racially motivated. The police chief said local investigators worked with the FBI to examine whether to file hate crime charges in this case but were “unable to present any inciting a riot or racially biased charges at this time.”
