New Details About Chaps Lane Brawl Discovered in Court

Crime News

AUGUSTA (WJBF-TV) — One by one, 7 of the Chaps Lane brawl suspects appeared in court Friday.

All of them waited to find out if they would be released from jail before trial.

State prosecutors say 18-year-old Tyteanna Thomas and 18-year-old Myah Dunbar can be seen fighting with each other during the brawl video.

The District Attorney’s Office continues to say the disagreement was over a boy.

The state also says 18-year-old Quiasha Henley and 18-year-old A’lexis Cain can be seen carrying weapons in the fight video.

Prosecutors say that 19-year-old Ryheem Jobes was involved, although his defense attorney says he was just standing there.

All of the teens were granted bonds ranging from $50,000 to $75,000.

The two mothers involved, 39-year-old Eyvette Byrd and 35-year-old Quianna Henley, were not granted bond because the judge said they are threats to the community.

The prosecution says Quianna Henley drove her daughter and her friends to Chaps Lane to take part in the fight.

Prosecutors believe Byrd used Facebook Live to invite people to her home for the purpose of fighting.

They say Byrd is the one seen driving a vehicle through a yard, trying to hit others.

21-year-old Demetrius Harris, 19-year-old Terry Daniels and 20-year-old Michael Dean have not had their bond hearings yet.

Investigators say Harris is the one who actually stabbed the victim, 18-year-old Demajhay Bell.

State prosecutors say that Harris and Bell were friends and they were on the same side, so they’re not sure why Harris stabbed Bell.

Harris can be seen in the video swinging a knife around and getting hit in the arm with a weapon. Thursday, he was seen in a cast with this arm in a sling.

Those granted bond Friday have conditions set. Conditions like no cell phones, no internet, no contact with those involved and curfews.

18-year-old Eddie Carter is still wanted. Investigators believe he is on the run.
