Two accused of bachelor party brawl released

The wedding will go on.

A judge today ordered a groom released on his own recognizance after his bachelor party turned into a bar brawl early Sunday.

Groom Brandon N. Peterson, 27, and Shad E. Armstead, 22, were released from Spokane County Jail this evening after appearing in Spokane County Superior Court.

But a second groomsmen, Kershawn A. Grigsby, 24, remains in jail because of a civil bench warrant.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Armstead jumped on top of a car and "beat his chest like a gorilla" in the parking lot of Good Tymes before a huge brawl erupted.
