Michael Brelo is Charged with Assault (On His Brother)

Four days after his acquittal, Cleveland Police Officer Michael Brelo got into a violent altercation with his brother Mark in Bay Village. He's now being charged with assault. 

The Bay Village police picked up a warrant at the Rocky River Municipal Court this morning, according to the court, and Brelo is expected to turn himself in later today.

No more info yet — Detective Kevin Krolkosky, of the Bay Village PD, doesn't start his shift until 1 p.m. — but the case is viewable on Rocky River Municipal Court's website (under the Public Access tab): 

From the complaint: 

"On or about May 27, 2015, ... Michael J. Brelo did knowingly cause or attempt to cause physical harm to Mark R. Brelo, to wit: by striking/punching Mark R. Brelo in the head, face, and body. Probable cause was established through interviews with Mark R. Brelo and Michael J. Brelo and observing visible injuries to Mark R. Brelo."
