Fight at Mercedes-Benz stadium lands father, son in jail 

A father and son were arrested after they allegedly beat three people in the stands at Mercedes-Benz Stadium during the Chick-fil-A Kickoff game Saturday, according to an Atlanta police report. 

Charles Walton Kraver Sr., 55, and Charles Walton Kraver Jr., 24, have since bonded out of jail on battery and simple battery charges, according to Fulton County jail records. The fight, which occurred between the 120 and 121 sections during the Alabama-Florida State game, was recorded and posted online, according to the report. 

Authorities say Lynda Soundara got into an argument with Kraver Jr. when he grabbed her by the neck and slammed her to the ground, causing her to hit her head. He then began punching her in the face and chest, according to the report. 

When a second victim, Kevin Breedlove, attempted to break up the fight, police said Kraver Sr. began choking him. 

A third victim, Conner Jones, also tried breaking up the fight, but the father-son duo punched him in the left side of his face, according to the report. 

Security eventually broke up the fight and the Kravers were taken to the Fulton County jail. 

Soundara sustained a big bump on her head from the attack and was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital. Breedlove and Jones complained of minor injuries.
