The older brother was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence, but never charged.
If you know how that goes cops often detain one party when called on a domestic violence report- simply to separate the 2 parties. I kid you not most times the guy is getting locked up temporarily even if there is little to truly indicate that truly being the case.
I remember a guy I knew through mutual friends in college getting arrested for this because he and his girlfriend of 5 years got into an argument outside of the dorms his freshman year. Some girl passing by called the cops and blew it out of proportion as if he was laying into her, and even when the cops showed up the girlfriend told the cops that wasn't even close to true. The cops didn't care, and since it was Friday afternoon, no city prosecutor would be able to review the incident report and so what would be a typical 12-24 hour holding period so everyone "cools off" if no domestic battery actually occurred, he got to spend the weekend in jail until Monday morning to be released with no charges.
Now, reports indicate he had a history of violent outbursts and trouble controlling his anger. So, chances are there was probably more validity to this 2009 incident, but he never got charged.
The younger brother wasn't getting in trouble, so I don't really understand what the article is alluding to this idea that they slipped thru the deportation option, because at no time did they ever face charges for which they were convicted for crimes that rose to the degree of an immigration review for revocation and deportation.
