A BROTHER-SISTER FIGHT broke out on Flat Shoals Road. The brother said he was washing a plate when his sister screamed at him about not taking the garbage out.

Also, his sister hit his chest and knocked him down.

Then, the brother's story changed. The officer couldn't confirm either story. The sister agreed to leave for the night. No charges filed. The brother is age 37, and the sister is 41.
