have charged two East Hampton men in connection with outside of after a rapper's mixtape release party late last month.
On Thursday, Kyle T. Russell, 29, and his cousin Michael E. Russell, 21, turned themselves in after warrants were issued for their arrests (the first warrants of 2012, in fact).
Police said approximately 40 people were fighting outside of the bowling alley in the early morning hours of Dec. 31. Officers used pepper spray and the stun gun portion of their Tasers to subdue the crowd, which include 30 or more onlookers in the parking lot. They were unable to make arrests at the time due to the amount of unruly people, according to Chief Jerry Larsen.
It is unclear what started the brawl.
The bowling alley had rented out its lounge/bar area for a private party.
Kyle was charged with unlawful assembly, a misdemeanor, and disorderly conduct, a violation. Meanwhile, Michael was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct.
The cousins were released on their own recognizance.
