Meet Allen Todd, One Of The 3 Men Charged In The Alabama Boat Brawl
Authorities in Alabama announced a number of charges on Tuesday as part of their ongoing crackdown on the agitators who over the weekend started a viral riot on a riverbank in Montgomery, Alabama. According to Chief Darryl Albert, three white guys are wanted for third-degree assault and have warrants out for their arrest. They were identified as Zachery Shipman, 25, Richard Roberts, 48, and Allen Todd, who all had addresses in the adjacent Selma and Orange Beach.
Investigators went “above and beyond” to see if hate crime charges were warranted but ultimately decided they weren’t, Darryl said.
Damien Pickett, the Black riverboat worker who had asked the men to relocate their pontoon boat, as well as a 16-year-old White lad who had first brought Damien to the pier through a smaller watercraft so that he could move the pontoon, are both accused of being assaulted by the three men. Reggie Gray, a 42-year-old Black man accused of “wielding a folding chair” in the commotion, was also urged by Albert to phone the police. Although he had no charges as of Tuesday, Albert claimed he was needed for more questioning.
Police on Saturday first detained, questioned, and then released thirteen individuals. However, Albert stated that police were already reviewing tons of online videos and anticipated additional charges. “When it initially took place, the police didn’t have the luxury of the videos that we all have seen now. [They were] acting on statements and witness statements that occurred as we arrived,” he said.
In addition, Albert clarified what led up to the altercation, essentially corroborating Tuesday’s account given to The Daily Beast by the riverboat’s captain, Jim Kittrell. Around 7 o’clock on Saturday, according to Kittrell, he was attempting to dock the historic Harriott II ferry on the Alabama River when he came across a drunken bunch who had docked their pontoon boat in the ferry’s designated spot.
“I asked them over the PA six, seven times, ‘Please move your boat two or three feet forward so we can dock.’ And they wouldn’t even budge,” he said. “And I said, ‘OK, I’m gonna have to call the police.’” Albert added that the Harriott II and its passengers sat idle near the dock for about 45 minutes.
Before cops arrived, Kittrell said the group of men walked away from their boat, so he ordered his first mate, Damien Pickett, to move the vessel himself. Damien was taken to shore in a small boat by the 16-year-old independent worker, who was also later assaulted.
Albert said Damien Pickett was “peacefully” trying to move the unmanned pontoon boat out of the way but the group of white men suddenly re-appeared and confronted him in a “very hostile manner.”
“The co-captain [Pickett] was doing his job,” Albert said. “However it quickly escalated.”
Kittrell referred to the entire situation as “unfortunate.” He claimed that he begged for the violence to end over the PA as both sides were throwing blows. He stated to The Daily Beast that he thought Pickett’s initial attack was racially motivated. Contrary to online rumors, he asserted that he did not believe that race had a role in the ensuing altercation, despite the fact that cell phone film clearly showed that the fight was mostly between a group of Black spectators, riverboat crew members, and passengers and the white instigators.
“It was just a shipmate trying to help a shipmate. They could’ve been little green men, for all they cared,” he said. “When they attacked [Pickett], my crew was gonna jump out and do the best they could to help him out. It was my crew against the people who attacked their shipmate, that’s all it was.”
