COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Four Georgia men have been arrested after a brawl broke out at a Red Lobster restaurant on Mother’s Day.

Police tell WTVM-TV (https://bit.ly/1Iw2Inj ) a group of men attacked another man at the restaurant Sunday in Columbus. Authorities say the men may have assaulted the victim because they believe he was involved in shooting that killed Robert Brooks in 2014.

The victim was holding a 14-month-old baby at the time of the assault.

Three men were taken to the hospital with injuries but were treated and released. The 14-month-old was not injured.

Police arrested 24-year-old Artrez Coppins, 21-year-old Edward Merritt, 21-year-old Tommie Mullins and 23-year-old Corey Turner.

All four charged with battery and reckless conduct among other charges. It is unclear if the men have lawyers.
