(WALA) -- A big fight in Bayou La Batre left several people injured and criminal charges are expected soon.
But the lead detective on the case just confirmed to FOX10 News that they are investigating a large fight at a boat launch that left several people injured.
The investigator says charges will be coming, but he would not say if more than one person will be charged.
FOX10 News obtained video that appears to show the end of the fight at Bayou La Batre’s boat launch last Saturday.
The woman says some of the people hurt were held underwater and beaten. “When you hear your loved one sit there and tell you he thought he was dying,” she said. The family member did not want to be identified and asked us to change her voice.
She says there was a small fight on Dauphin Island’s West End, but when her family member and friends got their boat back to Bayou La Batre about a dozen people were waiting for them at the launch. “It was definitely a brutal attack and the reason why, these grown men sat there and waited for two hours," she said.
"They had two hours to come to their senses to leave and not do this and they chose not to. ”The family member says several people were hurt in the fight, injuries include a broken nose, bruises and a concussion. “They’re doing good now," the woman said.
