Three Izard County residents are being held in the Izard County jail pending formal charges following two separate incidents of assault on a family member.
Izard County Sheriff Tate Lawrence says two Pineville brothers, 56 year old Richard Thomas Brown and 57 year old Ricky Brown, were arrested Saturday night following a dispute over land owned by their dead mother. During the altercation Richard Brown attempted to stab his brother with a knife type weapon and Ricky responded by shooting his brother in the leg with a handgun.
Sheriff Lawrence says the second incident occurred Sunday night when 40 year old Michael Edward Gilbreath assaulted his father and mother. Gilbreath's mother was hospitalized following the assault by her son.
