No Charges Filed in Brooks Road Brawl

“Mutual combat situation” developed as tenant was moving out of rented trailer.

One man sustained minor injuries during a July 5 altercation at a Brooks Road address.

A tenant told police he was moving his belongings out of a rented trailer when his landlord struck him in the head “for no reason.”  The tenant said he and the landlord struggled and, at some point during the confrontation, the landlord pulled out a knife. According to the tenant, he was able to get on top of the landlord and hold him down until the two stopped fighting.

The landlord denied pulling a knife and accused the tenant of hitting in him the arm with a stick or some other object. According to the police report, “The two got into a physical fight at that point and began to hit each other in a mutual combat situation.”

The landlord sustained a cut on his arm during the fight. The tenant was not injured.

The officer was unable to determine who started the fight. As a result, no charges were filed and no arrests were made.
