Suspects indicted in Flint River assault

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - A grand jury has indicted three people accused in a brawl on the Flint River that left a teen with a broken eye socket and nose.

The victim’s attorney, Will League, says Jordan Aaron English, Brittany Diane Pratt and Zachary Kyle Young have been indicted on misdemeanor third-degree assault charges.

A grand jury reduced the original felony charges for English and Young.

The brawl on the river happened when the 18-year-old victim and a group of others were celebrating a friend’s birthday.

Madison County Prosecutor Tim Gann says the trio will go to trial soon. While no date has been set he expects things to move along quickly.
