ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — The Latest on a video capturing a stranger stopping a fight between two teens (all times local):

6:30 p.m.

The man who interrupted a street fight in New Jersey captured in a video viewed millions of times on social media has been honored.

Ibn Ali Miller was honored by Atlantic City's council on Wednesday night along with the two teens involved in the argument.

Miller stepped in between them in the video posted Monday and wouldn't leave before they shook hands.

Miller says that the situation saddens him because that type of peaceful interaction should be normal and not an unbelievable occurrence.

The father of five also thanked his mother for raising him well and for the mothers of the two boys involved in the fight.

A New Jersey teenager who posted a video of a street fight interrupted by a peacemaking New Jersey man says that he is thankful for the intervention.

Jamar Mobley told CBS Philly (http://cbsloc.al/2nBjPBx) that the fight could have gone "a whole other way" if Ibn Ali Miller hadn't stepped in.

The video had been viewed millions of times after being posted on Facebook on Monday. It starts with a fistfight in Atlantic City between Mobley and another boy as other youth record it on their phones.

Miller then walks up and tells the onlookers that they're cowards for recording. He says the teens are "almost men" and need to start acting like it.

Miller has drawn wide praise, including a message of support on Twitter from LeBron James.
