CRESTVIEW – A fight between two brothers over another sibling having a nosebleed in their home led to a battery charge for a 22-year-old Crestview man.

The two were arguing over the nosebleed when the suspect started punching his brother in the head and face, according to his Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.

The victim was able to get away briefly from his brother, who then followed him into a bedroom and continued to hit him.

The abusive brother fled when the victim threatened to call law enforcement.

The deputy noted that the victim was bleeding from his nose and mouth.
