  22. Cleveland police officer acquitted in 2012 shooting now charged with assaulting his brother

    Michael Brelo, the Cleveland police officer who was acquitted barely three weeks ago for his role in a 2012 shooting that left two people dead, is now facing charges for assaulting his twin brother in his Bay Village home.

    On May 23, Brelo was found not guilty, in a nonjury trial, of two counts of voluntary manslaughter in the deaths of Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, after a 20-mile car chase involving 62 police vehicles and more than a third of the entire Cleveland police force on duty at the time. The chase ended in a hail of bullets when at least 13 officers emptied at least 137 rounds into the car. Brelo himself unloaded two full clips and then, using his “Marine training,” stepped onto the hood of the car and fired a further 15 rounds through the windshield at point-blank range. Despite this, the presiding judge absurdly declared in his ruling that “The state did not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant Michael Brelo knowingly caused the deaths” of the victims.

    On May 27, four days after his acquittal, Brelo assaulted his brother Mark, leaving “visible injuries,” according to court documents, after the pair spent the night drinking. Mark then staggered shirtless to a neighbor’s house and asked them to call the police. Mark Brelo also faces a disorderly conduct charge.
