Third man charged in cellphone videotaped fight in Detroit

DETROIT (AP) - (04/21/17) - A third man has been charged in the videotaped beating of another man in downtown Detroit's Greektown restaurant and entertainment district.

The Wayne County prosecutor's office says Eddie Curry of Inkster was arraigned Thursday on several charges including assault with intent to murder.

Authorities say Brandon Putnam was with friends early Sunday when an argument with a group of about eight men turned into a fight. Putnam was beaten as he tried to help one of his friends.

The fight was recorded on cellphone video and posted online.

Stanley Faulk of Inkster and Keith Harvey of Detroit were arraigned Wednesday. Curry was arrested Wednesday.

Curry faces an April 27 probable cause conference and May 3 preliminary examination.
