Two brothers are in jail for fighting police in court.

Newport News police say Teron Barnwell was facing felony firearm charges. He was in criminal court on Tuesday, when police tried to arrest him. They say Barnwell fought back.

That's when his brother, Leroy Washington, jumped in.

Officers were able to get the men under control.

The two were taken to the hospital after the scuffle.

They are both in the Newport News jail facing charges.
