The three men wanted for allegedly attacking a man with a beer bottle and brass knuckles after using a racial slur surrendered to police Friday.

According to the NOPD, Matthew Adam Vining, Stone Michael Linden and Bobby Lee McCollister are accused of attacking a driver on Nov. 4 in the 1400 block of Decatur Street.

Police say the victim was driving his car and had to stop because the three men were standing in the middle of the street. The driver honked the horn to get the men to move, but they refused.

Allegedly, the men then approached the vehicle and shouted racial slurs at the driver, who got out of his vehicle armed with a stick.

According to NOPD, the three men then attacked the driver, punching him with bare fists, brass knuckles and hitting him with a beer bottle.

Vining and Linden were arrested for second degree aggravated battery. McCollister was arrested for aggravated battery.
