Officers dispatched to a West Rocks Road home Monday evening got into an altercation with a man who earlier assaulted his brother, police said.
According to police spokesman Officer Carlton Giles, a police dispatcher answered a 911 call at 6:34 p.m. where the caller said an address then hung up. The dispatcher told officers he heard a woman screaming in the background.
When officers arrived, Giles said, they were met by a couple who said their 47-year-old son had assaulted his 54-year-old brother.
The officers reported the older brother had blood on his face, hands, and soaked into his shirt.
According to Giles, they opened the door to the other brother's bedroom and found him lying on his bed, with his hands and shirt covered in blood. The man, later identified as Kenneth Aubin, had no apparent injuries, the officers reported, and said Aubin told them the blood was his brother's.
Aubin was ordered to stand up to be handcuffed, Giles said, but he went into a rage, shouting obscenities and racial epithets at the officers. They reported it appeared Aubin was intoxicated.
Aubin became more aggressive and punched one of the officers, damaging his uniform, Giles said. As a result, one of the officers fired a Taser stun gun at Aubin, which disabled him long enought so he could be handcuffed.
Giles said the officers reported the fight occurred because Aubin was upset his mother had given his brother a car and his sister a house.
Both Aubin and his brother were transported to Norwalk Hospital for treatment.
Aubin was charged with assault on a peace officer, interferring with an officer, third-degree assault, second-degree threatening, and disorderly conduct. He was held on $50,000 bond and was to appear in court Tuesday.
Giles did not know the extent of the older brother's injuries or his medical condition.
