Investigation into River Street altercation continues

Posted: Updated:

One of the families involved in the fight is now continuing their campaign online.

They began a Facebook page dedicated to what they call "finding the truth about what happened to them," even though Savannah-Chatham Metro police said they may have been involved in instigating the situation.

According to Facebook posts, they want the truth and more security camera footage released.

Over the weekend one of the Atlanta men involved in the incident, Jim Thomas, posted a picture online claiming more camera angles are available.

The video, which police released shows the other group involved in the incident, but said they did not want to release the whole altercation.

Still, Thomas posted a picture on Facebook showing a diagram of what he said was not only where the incident happened, but showing two more security cameras with a better camera view – both at City Hall.

City officials said those cameras have not helped in the investigation. Police still are reviewing the security video.

City officials and people who saw the incident said Thomas's recollection of the incident may be a little off, claiming the actual fight started further down river street in front of Olympia Café, more than a block from those cameras in the picture on Facebook.

The city said they are working towards the truth as well.

The investigation is ongoing.
