The 42-year-old Black man seen wielding a folding chair in the viral melee on an Alabama riverfront has handed himself in almost a week after the wild brawl.
Reggie Ray, 42, was charged with disorderly conduct and was being housed in the municipal jail on Friday night, Montgomery police said.
In footage that was seen around the world, Ray appeared to swing at several members of a group of white boaters who had launched an unprovoked attack on Black riverboat co-captain Dameion Pickett.
Montgomery police previously charged three men and one woman, all of whom are white, with third-degree assault after they jumped Pickett for “peacefully” asking them to move their pontoon boat out of the riverboat’s reserved dock. They were identified earlier this week as Richard Roberts, 48, Allen Todd, 23, Zachery Shipman, 25, and Mary Todd, 21.
