Time: 10:59 pm
INFORMATION: While on routine patrol officers responded to the 6000 block of Werkner Road for the report of a domestic assault complaint between two brothers. Upon arrival, the officers met with the suspect, a 22-year-old Chelsea man out in front of the residence. The victim had reportedly left the scene and went to the hospital to be treated for injuries that resulted from being sprayed in the face with pepper spray. The suspect stated that he had gotten into an argument with his brother regarding money that he believed was owed to him and during the argument, the suspect stated that he felt in fear for his safety so he deployed the pepper spray from a pepper spray gun (an item that looks similar to an airsoft gun but has the capability of spraying pepper spray) into the face of his brother.
The officers made contact with the victim at the hospital and he stated that his brother was intoxicated and got upset with several members of the household and threw his sister's cell phone across the room. The victim stated that he said something to his brother but couldn’t remember what. This upset his brother and he pulled the pepper spray gun out and shot it at the victim in the face. The victim stated that at first, he had thought he had been shot with an airsoft gun but quickly realized it was pepper spray. The case will be submitted to the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office for review for potential criminal charges.
