Violent brawl at Axtion air lands minors behind bars


DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) —  A violent brawl New Year’s Eve landed some minors behind bars and the whole incident was captured on video.

Cell phone footage shows a fight between a crowd of people at Axtion Air.

“There were so many people there to the point where we had to some extra resources with Houston County because the nightshift guys were tied up,” Lt. Doug Magill said.

Because of the ages, the identities of the people involved have not been released.

In the video, you can see many people joining the fight swinging their fist and even kicking each other.

“The few people that were arrested were charged with misdemeanor crimes and they are juveniles. There is no serious assault, “Lt. Doug Magill said.

The owner of Axtion Air said he wants to make ensure his guests are safe.

“Our goal with Axtion air is to provide a safe and secure environment for all kids of all ages so that they can come and have fun with their families,” Richard Wells said.

Although the Dothan Police Department has identified some of the suspects, he plans to increase security.

“Going forward we planned on increasing our security presence here at Axtion and also we have identified some of the suspects who were involved in the incident and they will be banned from coming back to Axtion air,” He said.
