Meet Damien Pickett, The Montgomery Boat Brawl Victim
Montgomery Police Chief Darryl J Albert informed the public that the fight stemmed from a dispute over a docking spot. The Harriott II riverboat carrying 227 passengers was trying to dock its reserved spot but a private pontoon was docked in the space. So, the Harriott boat and its caption Damien waited for the owners for about 45 minutes. The captain then was hauled to the dock to speak to the boat owners, where he is confronted in a very “hostile manner”.
Another victim, an unnamed 16-year-old white male was also allegedly struck by the operators of the private boat.
