Brothers Charged in Summer Brawl on Boat

Two brothers from Maryland face charges after a fight on a boat over the summer.

A video released to News4 by Maryland Natural Resources Police shows them trading punches on a rented boat on the Choptank River, near Cambridge. One of them struck the other with what appears to be a boat antenna.

The rented boat sustained $3,000 in damages.

Asia and Joel Cooper of Crownsville are charged with assault and disorderly conduct. Trial is scheduled for Oct. 26.

Joel Cooper’s attorney declined to comment. Asia Cooper’s attorney did not respond to News4’s inquiry.
