Alabama boat brawlers Zachery Shipman and his girlfriend Mary Todd were pictured for the first time after being released from prison.
The pair turned themselves in to police in Montgomery, Alabama, after shocking footage seen by millions of people online showed two groups of people fighting at a dock.
The scuffle reportedly started when the group of white boaters became furious after being told to move their boat on the dock to make way for a river boat.
Shipman is one of four men charged with assault, and his girlfriend Mary Todd has been charged with assaulting a black riverboat crew co-captain.
The two have since been released and were seen for the first time since leaving a petrol station around 9am on Saturday morning in exclusive footage from DailyMail.com.
When approached with questions, Shipman said “I can’t speak at all” – while Todd quickly got into the car without saying a word.

Todd and Shipman are charged with assault with Richard Roberts, 48 - who is accused of punching Daniel Warren, 16, by the boy’s mother – in the incident, with cops saying the investigation is still ongoing in progress.
The boy’s mother, Crystal Warren, says she heard one of the attackers say “f**k this n*****” before getting into a fight with the black deckhand at the center of the shocking incident.
She told police she saw the entire interaction and revealed that she heard one of the white attackers threaten to go get a gun, according to court documents obtained by TMZ.
Police have also charged Allen Todd, 23, and today announced they have filed charges against Reggie Ray, 42.
Officials had announced they were looking to speak to Gray, who is the black man who was seen hitting people with a folding chair.
Ray was charged with one misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct in the Aug. 5 incident, according to CNN.
In the video, men are seen gouging out their eyes and punching each other in the head, and several people use folding chairs as weapons – including a man who leaves a knocked woman on the ground after beating her with the seat.
Multiple angles of the savage brawl have emerged after it was shared widely on social media last month.
It seemed to start when riverboat deckhand Damien Pickett, 31, clashed with a member of the White Boat Party after asking them to move.

Shipman reportedly owns Vasser’s convenience store, a small unit next to a Marathon gas station on a road leading to the historic town of Selma, about 50 miles from Alabama’s state capital, Montgomery.
Pickett threw his hat in the air in anticipation of a fight, before the scene quickly escalated as the couple exchanged blows.
Just then, another white man in red shorts tackles Pickett to the ground, before several others join the fray.
As some tried to flee and others jumped into the skirmish, a teenager dived into the water to swim across the river and join the fight.
In separate footage filmed from inside the riverboat, Gray was seen brutally smashing a chair over a man’s head.
Mary Todd is believed to be the woman seen in the viral video kicking Damien Pickett after he was shot in the melee
Pickett told police that Mary Todd punched him in the throat while holding a beer and “won’t let it pass,” according to AL.com.
It’s unclear if Allen Todd and Mary Todd are related.
The shocking brawl was filmed from multiple angles and posted on social media
Police Chief Darryl Albert said on Tuesday that 13 people were arrested at the scene
The fight started after Damien Pickett, the black sailor, moved boats parked in the spot on the quay reserved specifically for river cruising
In an interview with The daily beastriver cruise captain Jim Kittrell said the white men must have attacked Pickett because of his race.
“The white people who attacked my deckhand — and he was first senior deckhand — I see no other reason they attacked him other than racially motivated,” Kittrell said.
“All he did was move their boat three feet. It doesn’t make sense for six people to try to beat the snot out of you just because you moved their boat a few feet,” he said.
“In my opinion, the attack on Damien was racially motivated,” Kittrell explained, before adding that the rest of the fight “wasn’t black and white.”
The captain added that his crew would have defended Pickett, who is believed to be over 40 and a diabetic with high blood pressure, against anyone.
Kittrell — and police — say it all started when a private boat owner and his family took over the designated docking space for the Harriott, a tourist vessel that takes passengers up the Alabama River.
Jim Kittrell, the captain of the Harriott II, claimed the attack on Montgomery’s waterfront park was racially motivated
Zachery Chase Shipman’s mother, Melissa Calvert, 50, told DailyMail.com: ‘It wasn’t a racial thing, that’s well known. But now some try to say it was’
Despite claims it was a racially motivated incident, earlier this week DailyMail.com spoke to Melissa Calvert, the mother of Zachery Shipman
She said: ‘Everyone is just trying to stir shit up. That’s all that’s going on. It was not a racial thing, it is well known. But now some are trying to say it was.
Montgomery Mayor Steven Read said the fight was “caused by reckless individuals who failed to exercise common sense and caused an avoidable event.”
