One brother punched after caught filming his brother's beating


Both the New Orleans Police Department and Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office are investigating claims by two brothers that they were wrongfully beat up and tased outside their Algiers home by a group of Jefferson Parish sheriff's deputies early Monday morning. Both brothers were hospitalized for their injuries following the incident, which apparently grew out of an earlier encounter on the Crescent City Connection.
