Man injures brother during dispute over cell phone

ELYRIA —A 27-year-old man was injured by his brother following a fight over a cell phone.

Justin Pence was in bed at 11:30 p.m. in his 7th Street home when his wife informed him that his brother wouldn’t give her Pence’s cell phone.

When Pence confronted his brother, who was unnamed in the police report, his brother grabbed him by the neck and twisted so hard that Pence reportedly heard a crack, the police report said.

Pence told police that he wished to pursue domestic violence charges against his brother, and was taken to EMH Regional Medical Center for his injuries. He was later flown to Metro Health Medical Center in Cleveland. The status of his injury is unknown.
