SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) - When one man accused his brother of stealing okra from his garden, a fight broke out and injured them both, according to Spartanburg police.

Police were called to the brothers' home on Thursday afternoon about a disturbance and arrived to find Anthony Kelly and Ted Kelly with scratches on their arms.

According to the police report, Anthony Kelly confronted his brother about the theft, who in turn hit him with a stick. Ted Kelly told police he hit his brother in retaliation because Anthony hit him first.

According to the report, police observed that, "It seemed as if there was some sort of fight between the two with the sticks."

Police said the two men were too intoxicated to give written statements. Both were arrested and charged with assault and battery third-degree.
