Columbus police charge two brothers for fighting over marijuana

A brawl over marijuana prompted police to charge two brothers Friday with disorderly conduct, officers reported.

Police said Tyler Turnage, 18, told them he was rolling a joint or marijuana cigarette when 22-year-old Brandon Turnage knocked it from his hands in their 3101 15th Ave. home. Brandon Turnage acknowledged that, and "then admitted to wrestling Tyler to the ground and putting his knee on his chest and 'accidentally' kneeing Tyler in the nose, causing Tyler's nose to bleed," an officer wrote.

The officer said Tyler Turnage told him the two "are always fighting." Each accused the other of starting the fight.

The officer issued each a principal summons to court on the misdemeanor charges.
