Like A Country And Western Song

Just watched part of an assault case trial going on in the County Court at Law. (You can see some of my worst on the spot reporting ever by clicking on the Twitter link to the right.) I think: The jury will decide whether a brother can slug his half brother after said half brother (maybe) sloshes a beer into his face. To complicate matters, the half brother was entering onto the brother's property and allegedly had a "power of attorney" to care for their mother which was in the brother's home. Brother said he stopped half-brother from entering because half-brother had been ordered to stay off the land. Confused? Me, too. Edit: Just got a call from the court reporter who points out this critical error: The two guys are full brothers - not half brothers. Makes this whole thing better.
