MARION, AL (WSFA) - Just one day after a riot in the small Perry County town of Marion, a curfew for everyone.
The Marion Police Department says everyone is to be off the streets between the hours of 10pm and 7am until further notice.
Eight people have been arrested in Monday's brawl and several were injured, though none seriously.
Witnesses say more than 100 people rioted in front of city hall after a family feud grew out of control.
More than 11 different state agencies responded to the fight, which lasted more than 30 minutes, and completely shut the city
As you may or may not know I live in Alabama, the same region of the state where this all happened, so I know a little bit about the story.
The "riot" was between two families over something that they've been fussn over for a little while and it came to a head when both sides showed up
at the police dept. at the same time to file a report on one another, The police know who the people are and the fight is between just two families,
so why a curfew on the whole town? Unless this gives them a reason to practice what's to come in the future.
