“The Cleveland police officer acquitted on manslaughter charges for the 2012 deadly police chase and shooting is wanted for assault,” a report from Fox 8 Cleveland read.
Michael Brelo and his brother, Mark, are charged with one count each of misdemeanor assault for the incident on May 27 in Bay Village. Mark also faces a misdemeanor charge of disorderly conduct.
Both men voluntarily surrendered to Bay Village police on Wednesday. They were processed and released, with court appearances scheduled for June 10.
Apparently you can acquit the criminal, but you can’t take the criminal out of the acquitted. Brelo’s father said, “It was a fight between brothers.” So he said that’s it, so I feel much better now. I love it when these guys that get acquitted can’t seem to stay out of trouble. We will be here to bring you Brelo’s next encounter with the law where I’m sure his punishment will be minimal.
