Altercation leads to brother’s knife fight


OKLAHOMA CITY — Two men are in the hospital this morning after a rough night of fighting and drinking. Police say the men are here helping with storm clean up in the Moore area.

The fight broke out at a hotel near I-40 & Meridian and I think it’s fair to say the term brotherly love does not apply to this situation.

It happened just after 2:00 am after police responded to an altercation between two males, who happened to be brothers.

The brothers are in town helping repair electricity in the Moore area, contracted through OG&E.

Police say the altercation took place in a hotel room and they are still trying to figure out what caused this argument to go violent.

“At this time we don’t really have any idea of what they were fighting about. I think the fact that they were intoxicated had something to do with it,” Lt. Kevin Parton of the OKC Police says.

The Brothers were transported to an area hospital; one brother suffered a stab wound to the torso, however police say it’s a non-life threatening injury.

Domestic violence detectives are investigating this case to find out why a fight between two brothers caused one brother to physically hurt the other.
