The police reported that the chaotic incident took place at 7 p.m. on the 200 block of Coosa Street. The dispute started when the boaters in question flat-out refused to move their pontoon boat. The mayor of Montgomery, Steven Reed, seemed to back up this version of events by stressing the rapid arrest of numerous suspects in the dock worker’s assault.
Another video shows an incident where an unclothed man runs up to a dock worker and punches him in the face. As witnesses yell for assistance, two more individuals rush in to join the attack on the worker. A female voice is heard pleading with coworkers to help the person in need.

To defend the worker, one man runs down the ramp to the dock and the other jumps into the water. As other dock workers arrive to back up the one who is being attacked, the fighting temporarily dies down.
But in a different video, another group of people approaches the pontoon boat, and things quickly escalate, with punches being thrown, hair being pulled, and a woman being dragged into the water. After then, in the third video clip, even more people, both men and women, join the fight.
A man uses a folding chair to attack two people in the pontoon boat party, one male and one female. The man with the chair and many bystanders were swiftly apprehended by police who arrived on the scene. Mr. Reed voiced his alarm about the acts of violence and emphasized that those responsible would be brought to justice.
