SCOTTSDALE -- Three Scottsdale police officers were injured investigating a fight between two brothers Saturday night.

Two Scottsdale police officers noticed the two men fighting near Fifth Avenue and Scottsdale Road at approximately 10 p.m. Saturday. Officers made contact with the intoxicated men to separate them and investigate the cause of the fight.

Additional officers arrived and took Shannon into custody.

Three officers were transported to Scottsdale Healthcare-Osborn. They were treated for minor injuries and released.

Shaylon was booked on counts of failure to obey and disorderly conduct while Shannon was booked on three counts of aggravated assault, resisting arrest, criminal damage, disorderly conduct and failure to obey.
