Meet Richard Roberts, One Of The 3 Men Charged In The Alabama Boat Brawl

Richard Roberts has been identified as one of the three men charged in the Alabama boat brawl. According to police chief Darryl Albert, the incident happened after a private boat owner and his family occupied the Harriot, a tourist boat that travels up and down the Alabama River, without permission.

According to Darryl, 13 persons were detained on the spot. Three suspects, all of whom are white guys, are accused of assault. In addition to Richard, the other two were Zachary Shipman, 25, and Alan Todd, 23.

Furthermore, according to Chief Darryl, Harriot’s captain Jim Kittrell tried to reach the owners of the private boats using his PA system for more than 40 minutes. According to reports, the private boat passengers merely used lewd gestures and profane language in response. The chief also shared, fighting started when a private boat passenger attacked the captain of the riverboat. He stated that after consulting with the FBI, his agency decided against filing charges for hate crimes.

Also, there may be additional charges as the investigation continues. At the time of the event, there were 227 passengers on board. Albert pleaded with the public to share any additional videos or proof of the altercation.

A mugshot of one of the white males accused of assault demonstrates that the attack was racially motivated, according to the captain of the Alabama river cruise whose black personnel were involved in a fight that went viral among white pleasure boaters.

In an interview with The Daily Beast, the boat’s Captain Jim said that the white group must have attacked the black deckhand because of his race.

“The white guys that attacked my deckhand—and he was a senior deckhand first mate—I can’t think of any other reason they attacked him other than it being racially motivated,’ Jim said. “All he did was move their boat up three feet. It makes no sense to have six people try to beat the snot out of you just because you moved their boat up a few feet.”

‘In my opinion, the attack on Damien was racially motivated,’ he explained, before adding that the rest of the fight ‘was not black and white.’

Furthermore, the now-famous video of the altercation reveals that the deckhand Damien Pickett and the white boaters had a verbal disagreement before one of them punched and pushed him. The captain said that his crew would have defended Picket against anyone because he is supposedly over 40, a diabetic, and has hypertension.

According to New York Times, Richard faces two warrants for third-degree assault, a misdemeanor for assaulting a teenager, the co-captain of The Harriott Riverboat at the Riverfront Park in Alabama, Alabama.

Moreover, Reggie Gray, who was shown on film attacking with a folding chair, however, appeared amidst the chaos. Gray has not been accused of any misconduct despite being spotted in the middle of the brawl.
