MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama boat co-captain says he was hanging on “for dear life” when he was attacked by men on the capital city’s riverfront. Dameion Pickett is a crew member of the Harriott II in Montgomery. He described the riverfront brawl in a handwritten statement to authorities included in court documents. Four white boaters have been charged with misdemeanor assault in the attack against Pickett as well as a teen deckhand who was punched. Police announced Friday that a fifth person, a Black man who police said appeared to be swinging a folding chair during the subsequent fight, was charged with disorderly conduct.
