The three adult men arrested in the brawl which broke out at a baby shower at Club Luis de Camoes on Porter Street in Stoughton late this past Saturday night, pleaded not guilty to charges in court on Monday and were released on 1,000 cash bail each, the Boston Herald reports.
Paulo Pires Depina, 24; Aderito Lopes DeAndrade, 22; and Patrick Cardoso Lopes, 24, all from Brockton, were arraigned in Stoughton District Court Court Jan. 15 for their alleged roles in the incident, which has made headlines locally and nationally.
The three will return to court March 1 for a pre-trial hearing, according to the Herald.
A 14-year-old from Brockton was also arrested, but is being dealt with in juvenile court.
