Family Disturbance Turns Violent

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

Two Corpus Christi brothers are in Nueces County Jail this morning facing charges of assault and resisting arrest.

Residents on the 4900 block of Concord were rattled out of their homes Easter morning by a heated family argument that quickly got physical.

"I seen the car reversing hitting another car," a neighbor said.

The violence broke out just before 11 a.m. Sunday when police say 25-year-old Hector Perez began hitting family members.

According to police and witnesses,  Perez was trying to get his baby's mother to get into a car with him.

Police tell us the family was trying to get him to leave the house because they suspected that he was under the influence of synthetic marijuana.


"He was beating up on the grandma and then the mom," a neighbor said.

But the violence didn't stop there.

Perez got in his car and then used it as a weapon, hitting several people in the process.

"He went and ran over the guys that are living there. He didn't even stop and didn't even care that their were kids around.

"You seen the car go over his legs. It's a feeling of helplessness."

But Perez wasn't happy until his child's mother finally got in to the car.

Police say she left with Perez to try and stop him from hurting anybody else.

Officers were able to catch up with him on the 4800 block of Delwood near Everhart and Yorktown.
 
When police tried to arrest him, that's when they say his brother, 21-year-old Adrian Perez tried to keep police from getting to their suspect.

As a result, his younger brother was also placed in cuffs.

25-year-old Hector Perez is now facing several charges and more charges could be coming.
