Teen Employee in Montgomery, Alabama Loading Dock Fight Risked His Safety to Help His Co-Worker

A massive brawl at a Mobile, Alabama, loading dock has required Mobile authorities to issue arrest warrants. According to CNN, four warrants will be served due to the videos and images heavily circulating online from the fight. Several people were handcuffed after the incident, which seemed racially motivated.

According to 1819 News, “Witnesses told the press the fight escalated from a disagreement about a pontoon boat blocking the dock where a riverboat was attempting to park.” Most videos show a black man taking off his hat before a fight ensues between him and a white man. The man who threw his hat is reportedly a dock worker. The video then shows the alleged worker being attacked by multiple whites, causing black riverboat passengers to join the fight. A black teenager, Aaren, who reportedly is also a dock employee, is shown swimming to the dock on film and joining the melee to defend his coworker.

Social media has applauded Aaren for his bravery. He’s been shown an outpour of love for going to the assistance of his colleague while risking his safety. According to the New York Post, Makina Lashea, a representative for the teen’s family, said, “In the face of adversity, Aaren selflessly came to the rescue of a fellow colleague, showcasing courage beyond his years.”

Rickey Smiley and a few others were saying that he didn't do any. I told them that they needed to watch towards the end.
