DETROIT (WWJ) – A fourth person has been charged in connection with a violent Greektown brawl caught on video that went viral online.
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy says 28-year-old Terrell Carter of Westland participated in the assault on 23-year-old Brandon Putnam in Detroit’s busy entertainment district, early in the morning of Sunday, April 16.
Prosecutors allege that a friend of Putnam’s got into an argument with a group of eight men — including Carter — on Monroe St. at St. Antoine, at around 1 a.m. The dispute escalated into a physical fight, Worthy said, and Putnam tried to help his friend and was “violently beaten” while on the ground and then robbed of cash and some personal items.
Putnam was hospitalized with critical injuries, but survived the attack.
A graphic video of the incident, that went viral on Facebook with more than 2 million views, has since been taken down
