MARION, AL (WSFA) - Just one day after a riot in the small Perry County town of Marion, a curfew for everyone.

The Marion Police Department says everyone is to be off the streets between the hours of 10pm and 7am until further notice.

Eight people have been arrested in Monday's brawl and several were injured, though none seriously.

Witnesses say more than 100 people rioted in front of city hall after a family feud grew out of control.

More than 11 different state agencies responded to the fight, which lasted more than 30 minutes, and completely shut the city down.
