A 16-year-old Campfield Drive teen was arrested after police said he assaulted his brother and his 66-year-old father Wednesday afternoon.

The teen had been involved in an incident at school earlier in the day, and police said he became upset when his brother and father tried to counsel him. He began to fight with his brother, and as he left the house, damaged the brother's car.

When officers arrived at the scene, they said the teenager was walking down the street. The family warned police that he might have some sort of weapon, and officers ordered him to take his hand out of his pants. It was then, police said, the teen threw a rock at his brother's car, breaking a window, police said. He started throwing punches at his brother and his father, causing minor injuries to both, according to the report.

He was charged with two counts of third-degree assault, and one count each of third-degree assault on an elderly person, disorderly conduct, first-degree criminal mischief and interfering with an officer. At police headquarters, he complained his asthma was flaring up and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The teen was released to a relative's custody and is scheduled to appear May 28 in juvenile court.
