As they were being taken before a judge, Frazier-Sallad blamed the victim as the aggressor.

"He started scuffling with me in the street, calling me racial slurs. His girl was already running," he said.

Both men are now facing a list of charges including assault and conspiracy, and they are both being held on bail. They will face a preliminary hearing on Oct. 25.
