Nelson brothers’ fight lands in jail

It’s a case of brotherly love gone bad and now a pair of Rosemont men will find themselves in court.

It’s a case of brotherly love gone bad and now a pair of Rosemont men will find themselves in court.

On Wednesday night Nelson Police Department officers were called to the 500 block of West Richards Street after receiving several calls of two males fighting in the street. Both men had also been the subject of disturbance calls in the past 24 hours in the same area.

When officers arrived, they found 26-year-old and 24-year-old brothers who refused to allow their dispute to simmer. Both men were arrested and later released on a promise to appear in court on June 20. The brothers were also given the conditions to keep them away from the area.

The next day police were again called to the 500 block of West Richards regarding a landlord/tenant dispute. When officers arrived they found the same brothers in breach of their conditions of release.

Both men were arrested for breaching their conditions from the previous day and have now been held in custody until a court appearance on Monday.
