BAY VILLAGE - Police just released to the Fox 8 I-Team video from when embattled Cleveland Police Officer Michael Brelo was booked on a misdemeanor ‎assault charge.

It's a new look at the latest trouble for an officer who had just gotten out of the headlines.‎

Detective Kevin Krolkosky said Brelo was  fingerprinted and ‎processed before being released on a bond.‎‎‎

Brelo and his twin brother, Mark, are each facing assault charge‎s. Police said the two 31-year-old men, who had been drinking, got into a physical fight at Michael's house on May 27. Court documents said both Brelos suffered visible injuries.

The fight took place just four days after Michael Brelo was acquitted of two charges of manslaughter for his role in the Nov. 29, 2012 chase and shooting.  Two suspects, Timothy Russell and Malissa Williams, were killed.

Police said Brelo was not treated any differently than anyone else when he turned himself into Bay Village police.

"This was standard booking procedure," Det. Krolkosky said.

Brelo‎'s father said his son did not want to talk about the issue. He said his son and the entire family have been under an enormous amount of stress for the past two years.

Micahel and his brother are both due in court next week.

A call to Michael Brelo's attorney seeking comment was not returned.
