State police and Erie County sheriff’s deputies broke up a street fight between two relatives on the Cattaraugus Indian Reservation early Tuesday afternoon. When troopers arrived at 14167 State Route 439 they found Brandon J. Brooks, 18, in front of the family house apparently trying to fight with his father.

After the two were separated, Brooks tried to avoid arrest, troopers said. He was taken into custody and removed from the scene.

He was charged with disorderly conduct, obstructing governmental administration and resisting arrest. After being arraigned in the Town of Collins Court he was remanded to the Erie County Holding Center pending further court proceedings. Officers of the Seneca Nation Marshal’s Office assisted with the incident.
