COCOA They attended the game together and, police say, got into a fight together before being taken off to jail together.
The Montgomery family including a woman suspected of punching Cocoas deputy chief in the head before being subdued will face a judge today during a jailhouse bond hearing after being charged with carrying out a post-game brawl at a basketball playoff.
The fight broke out minutes after the Rockledge versus Cocoa game at the Cocoa High School gymnasium with officials adding that the brawl had nothing to do with the basketball game itself.
Hundreds of people had made their way through the gyms exit door when two people got into a fight.

We dont know what started the fight. The two girls that started it were separated, said Barbara Matthews, spokeswoman for the Cocoa Police Department.

were charged with disturbing the peace, records show. Susan, Shenika and Sheldon Montgomery were also charged with battery on an officer, records show.
A 16-year-old Cocoa High School student attending the game was also taken into custody and placed on suspension by school officials.
