Meet Zachary Shipman, One Of The 3 Men Charged In The Alabama Boat Brawl
One of Alabama Boat Brawl attackers has been identified and his name is Zachary Chase Shipman, proprietor of Vasser’s Mini Mart. He was not only a participant in the altercation, but also among the first to flee the scene when he noticed that the police were present, according to internet users. Since his claimed identification, Twitter users have begun using the name, Chase Shipman.
Nevertheless, social media users have identified the people who started the fight from photographs and videos uploaded online instead of waiting for the names of the suspects to be officially confirmed. Steve Todd, Rachel Faulkner Todd, Catherine Cromer Martin, Anna Blake Langford, Mary Elizabeth Todd, Allen Todd, and Chase Shipman are some of the names mentioned.
Some people recognized the last name on the list, Chase Shipman, and discovered that he was a businessman with ties to Selma. The Selma Times Journal has also verified his identification and identified him as one of the fight’s participants. He spent the weekend canoeing with his family from Selma to Montgomery, according to reports from the journal.
What’s interesting is that Chase Shipman himself took to social media and posted: “I am sure most of you have seen the news about the riverboat incident. Yes, I was there but I was the first to try to get away.”
Chase continued by saying that he was aware of what had occurred and that, rather than getting into a fight, he had been trying to break up the conflict. When he was unable to, he attempted to flee. He also provided an explanation for why there are videos showing him leaving the scene first. He understood what was happening was wrong and “did not want to be a part of it.”
“I realize I have a business to run and represent, and no charges were filed against me because I was not involved.”
Unfortunately for him, because of his inconsistent comments and behavior in the video, viewers of the internet do not think he was telling the truth. They exposed him as a liar as a result, and his nasty evaluations of Vasser’s Mini Mart have also been trending. In fact, prior to the incident, the Facebook page had ratings above 4, which have since dropped to 1.9.
On August 6, 2023, a warrant was issued for his arrest. Zachary was 25 years old when he was arrested on August 8, 2023. He was charged with one count of third-degree assault.

The Google reviews for the business before the riverboat incident were mixed but contained many positive reviews. “The dressing was not dressing.. it was plain cornbread… The greens were canned greens & it’s tore my stomach up..” one person wrote. But another person wrote a year ago, “Good biscuit breakfast sandwiches. Dinner plates are slam full and yummy. We will be back.”
However, as a result of complaints about the riverboat incident, the establishment only has one star presently on Yelp. One woman wrote, “Just good ol boys, never meaning no harm, eh? I hope they run you all out of business!”
Yelp has suspended comments on the page. “This business recently received increased public attention resulting in an influx of people posting their views to this page, so we have temporarily disabled the ability to post here as we work to investigate the content,” Yelp wrote.

According to a Selma Times-Journal report from June 2023, “Chase Shipman is the new owner at Vassers. Shipman, 25, bought the business from his mother, Missy Calvert, on June 16.”
Zachary told the newspaper, “My parents have done this for the last 19 years. father passed away several years ago and I was working for the railroad. My mom wanted me to come in and learn the business because eventually he one day wanted to hand the business off to me. I started learning everything I could. I figured if I started learning at a young age and it took off like I was hoping then I could turn it into something good and possibly expand it. She was ready to sit back a little bit and sit watch. She will still help out a little bit but I decided it was now or never.”
