[WATCH] Brothers Who were Arrested for Fighting Back Against Violent Cops — Beat Charges, Win Settlement

Southfield, MI —  Two men went from being arrested and facing felony charges to being released, cleared of all charges, and now, given a six-figure settlement — after getting into a restaurant brawl with two belligerent Detroit cops.

Tywonn Mitchell, 20, and Naybon Moore, 26, were driving to Grandy’s Coney Island back in May of 2013 when they were followed into the parking lot by two Detroit cops.

Having done nothing illegal and knowing their rights, the two men thought little of the police car and walked inside to get their food.

At the time, Mitchell was about to be a Junior at Madonna University, studying criminal justice. Mitchell’s brother Moore is also college educated, and both of them were entirely informed on their rights.

After they had entered the store, two bully Detroit police officers followed them in. That’s when the harassment began.

The officers demanded that the two men produce their IDs. However, these two gentlemen weren’t the pushovers that the officers took them for.

Mitchell and Moore knew that they were being shaken down for no reason and that these two officers were trying to unlawfully detain them. When the men refused to be harassed and refused to “show their papers,” one officer became violent.

The officer, as if he was intentionally trying to start a fight, pushed one of the brothers in the chest. That’s when Moore merely pushed the officer’s hands away. He and his brother were then met with a cop’s fist to the face. A full-on brawl ensued.

The two brothers eventually stopped the fight and were booked and charged with felony assault on an officer.

The Detroit police department also cleared both officers in this case, stating that the “use of force [was] appropriate and reasonable.”

  • this wasn’t a ‘stupid mistake’ . this was intentional criminal acts committed by two thugs dressed in police costumes . they should be charged and caged, and lose the right to carry weapons or hold any position of power over anyone
