The Cleveland police officer acquitted in the shooting deaths of two unarmed suspects last month was charged with assault following an incident with his brother, according to Cleveland.com.
Michael Brelo was arrested last week after he allegedly hit his brother, Mark Brelo, in the head, face and body, according to Cleveland.com. Michael Brelo was drunk and showed “obvious signs of recent physical altercation” following the incident, according to the arrest report. He allegedly knocked on the doors of several homes in Bay Village, Ohio, before his arrest, according to the arrest report.
Mark Brelo was also charged with disorderly conduct and misdemeanor assault, according to Cleveland.com.
Michael Brelo was acquitted of manslaughter in May following charges in the death of two unarmed suspects after he and several other officers fired 137 shots at the suspects during a 2012 police chase.
