EL PASO (KTSM) — Police arrested two brothers for allegedly teaming up against El Paso police officers during an arrest.
Police arrived at the home of Marcos and Leonardo Hernandez Friday night after reports of a vicious dog.
One of the officers said Marcos' dog charged at him so he pulled out his gun and that's when Marcos tried to pull the gun out of the officer's hand, then allegedly punched and kicked the officer.
While the officers were arresting Marcos, his brother Leonardo allegedly grabbed one of the officers by the neck and tried to pull him off of his brother.
Police arrested both men.
