Brothers Tased and arrested after altercation

By From page A2 | May 26, 2013

A routine bar fight involving two men from Sacramento escalated as both were Tased and arrested by an officer in downtown Davis early Saturday morning.

At 1:50 a.m., a Davis police officer was called to the scene of an alcohol-fueled fight at First and F streets between brothers Franklin Wesley, 22, and Engelbert Wesley, 19.

The responding officer attempted to intercede. Although both men initially were complying with the officer, Sgt. Frank Tenedora reported that the situation intensified.

“One of the brothers assaulted the officer, who responded by using his Taser,” Tenedora said. “When the other brother saw that, he got up and started resisting, so the officer had to use his Taser on him.”

The officer took both men into custody. Neither sustained injuries and were medically cleared after the arrest, Tenedora said.

They were booked in Yolo County Jail, and are being charged with fighting in public, resisting arrest and battery upon a police officer.
