A fight between brothers put one of them in the hospital, Hastings Police report. When officers responded to call to the 800 block of East Madison on April 24, a man said his brother came to the house, started an argument and put him in a headlock.
The victim said that he was able to get out of the head lock by punching his brother several times in the head, eventually knocking him out. He then called for help.
The injured brother was treated by EMS and transported to the hospital for further examination of his injuries. The incident report will be sent to the Barry County Prosecutor’s Office for review.
In his report, Police Chief Jeff Pratt noted the Hastings Cadet Program was selected the “Charity of the Month” for May. The Charity House, located at the corner of Apple and Cass streets behind O’Rielly Auto Parts, collects returnable bottles and cans to benefit a different good cause each month.
“Please feel free to drop off your returnable cans and bottles to the Charity House,” Pratt said. “The proceeds from this event will help sponsor the second annual Hastings Cadet’s graduation program in June.”
