Oh, brother: Twins charged with hurling bricks at each other
ORANGE CITY, Fla. (AP) — What are a few bricks between brothers?
Well, they’re worth battery charges for twin 52-year-olds after officials say an argument ended with them hurling the projectiles at each other.
The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://bit.ly/1esczzJ ) reports that Michael and James Remelius were arguing in the front yard of a home last week when Michael first threatened to throw a brick at his brother.
According to a police report, Michael Remelius followed through, striking his brother in the leg and causing a small cut. James Remelius retaliated with a brick that bloodied and bruised his brother’s eye.
Both were arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. Both remained jailed Tuesday. James’ bail is $25,000 while Michael’s is $20,000. Court records show they do not yet have attorneys to comment on the case.
