Witnesses say there is more to an alleged fight that got one man arrested on Sept. 19, according to the official complaint in Mower County Court.

Officers went to the 600 block of First Avenue that night for a large fight and arrested Brian LeKeith Bell, 25, of Milwaukee. Witnesses say, according to the court complaint, that a group followed two people home and threatened to shoot them. One man said he had “enough bullets for y’all.”

Witnesses say Bell was the one who walked near a fence when he heard police were coming and stashed a .25 caliber pistol, which he allegedly had illegally, as he is a felon. Witnesses also allege that other assailants carried a pipe and a tire iron.

Bell claims he was walking by the scene but did not participate, according to the court complaint. The Mower County Attorney’s office charged Bell with one count of a felon convicted of a crime of violence in possession of a gun, a felony. Bell posted a $50,000 bond on Sept. 21 and was released from jail. He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 18.
