One man involved in a Sept. 19, 2012, fight in Austin pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, a felony.

Officers went to the 600 block of First Avenue last September for a large fight and arrested Brian LaKeith Bell, 26, of Milwaukee. Witnesses said, 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 said Bell walked near a fence when he heard police were coming and stashed a .25-caliber pistol. Witnesses also allege that other assailants carried a pipe and a tire iron.

Bell originally claimed he was walking by the scene but did not participate in the fight, according to the court complaint.
