Two men allegedly pull out rifle on Greek Row, start fist fight

From staff reports

Pullman Police arrested three men who drove to Greek Row area last night and allegedly assaulted four male pedestrians. Two of the men reportedly pointed a rifle at other Greek Row residents before breaking into the fight.

Officers arrived at the scene as the fight was breaking up, according to a news release from the Pullman Police Department.

The four male victims included three Moscow residents and one Pullman resident, but none of them received more than minor injuries, Pullman Police Cmdr. Chris Tennant said.

Witnesses described the rifle as resembling an AR15 type weapon, but a search warrant is still pending for the suspect’s vehicle, where police believe the weapon is being stored, according to the release.

Officers arrested the three men from the car, University of Idaho student Bryan Williams, Marquise Leonard and WSU student Everett Davis, at about 2:20 a.m. in the 500 block of Colorado Street, according to the release.

As Davis was not involved in anything but the fist fight, he was arrested for assault IV, which is a misdemeanor, and was booked and released, Tennant said.

Williams and Leonard were booked and transported to the Whitman County Jail. They were each arrested for two felonies and two misdemeanors, according to the news release.

Tennant said the police department spent last night figuring out what happened and will probably spend the next ten days figuring out why it happened with re-interviews. The incident wasn’t random though, he said.

“Williams was having a bad night,” Tennant said.

The police had been called earlier in the night about Williams’s disorderly behavior, and he’d been kicked out of Stubblefield’s Bar, Tennant said.
