Two Erie County brothers in jail tonight

Two East Erie County brothers are in jail tonight after one of them allegedly struck a state trooper and the other allegedly hindered the arrest.  

It all started in the 4800 block of East Lake Road.  Troopers were there to arrest 29-year-old Jonathan Abbey on a previous warrant.   When they arrived, police say Abbey's brother, 30-year-old Michael Abbey lied that his brother wasn't there.  When he was discovered, a fight broke out.  

The troopers say Jonathan Abbey tried to choke one of the officers.  Jonathan faces charges including aggravated assault and resisting arrest.  Michael faces charges of hindering apprehension.
