Tosa Man Accused of Attacking, Injuring His Brother
After arguing with his parents and shoving his mother, defendant leaves, then sneaks back into home and lies in wait for his brother, police reports say.
A 24-year-old Wauwatosa man is accused of beating his brother after getting into an altercation with his parents.
Macklin J. Dion was charged Sunday in Milwaukee County Circuit Court with one count of substantial battery. If convicted, he faces up to 1½ years in prison and $10,000 in fines.
According to the criminal complaint:
On Friday, Wauwatosa police officers were called to a home in the 2200 block of North 63rd Street after Dion got into an argument with his parents and began to push his mom around.
His mother told police Dion had a history of drug use and mental problems and appeared to high on something. He began to pick a fight with her, she told police, when she told him she couldn't take him to the hospital because she had to go to the airport to pick up his sister.
Dion complained, she said, that she loved his sister more she did him and became very agitated. Her husband intervened, the woman said, and her son pushed her when she got between them.
Dion left the home before an officer arrived, so he went to go look for him. The parents needed to go to the airport, so they told their other son to lock his bedroom window to make sure Dion wouldn’t be able to get back inside.
However, when the victim went to his room, he found Dion already hiding inside, and after he revealed himself, he punched his brother four times in the face. The officer came back to the residence and arrested Dion, who caused a laceration on his brother’s face in the attack.
While being taken to the Wauwatosa police station, Dion told the officer his brother deserved to get punched in the face, and he didn’t deserve to get arrested. He added that it was his brother who should be the one going to jail.
Dion is currently being held in Milwaukee County Jail on $2,500 bond.
