Brothers arrested after domestic incident Saturday night.

Galesburg Police on Saturday, November 13th responded to the 2100 block of Daniel Drive for reports of a domestic battery in progress. Upon arrival, officers met with 25-year old Cody McLaren of Galesburg who told police he had gotten into a physical altercation with his brother 28-year old Brandon McLaren. Cody claimed Brandon struck him numerous times in the head and pulled out a clump of his hair. Cody was concerned about Brandon’s recent actions – regarding his well-being and called 911. While he was on the phone with dispatchers, Brandon attacked him. Officers made contact with an intoxicated Brandon in a bedroom where he told officers he’d attack officers if they touched him. As officers went to detain Brandon, he tensed up and began resisting forcing officers to use a taser on him. Brandon was transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center for an evaluation. Meanwhile, it was discovered Cody McLaren had a valid Knox County Warrant for electronic harassment and he was placed under arrest. While leaving the hospital, Brandon McLaren refused to walk and was carried to a squad car where he continually yelled obscenities and threats at officers. He was transported to the Knox County Jail and charged with Domestic Battery, Resisting a Peace Officer, and Threatening a Public Official.
