Two brothers wound up in the hospital after getting into a fight at a Plainfield hunting and fishing club, police said.
Will County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said deputies responded to a domestic dispute at the Pure Rod and Gun Club, 23239 W. Main St., late Thursday night.
Hoffmeyer said the brothers were drinking when they got into an argument that ended with one man being taken to Adventist Bolingbrook Hospital for injuries sustained when he was beaten. The other brother was taken to Presence St. Joseph Medical Center in Joliet after being stabbed. Hoffmeyer did not know the extent of his injuries, but said they were not life threatening.
Hoffmeyer, who did not have any information on the men's names or ages, said charges are pending against both brothers.
“The deputies were waiting for them to be released from the hospital to take them into custody,” Hoffmeyer said, adding one man is set to be charged with aggravated domestic battery, while his brother faces a domestic battery charge.
She said the men’s father was also taken into custody following the incident.
“He was also drinking and was trying to get into his car,” which prompted deputies to take action to prevent him from driving, Hoffmeyer said.
Booking information for the three men was not immediately available Friday morning.
