A Cedarville man was arrested Tuesday after he allegedly assaulted his brother, who is in hospice care.

James Patillo, 53, was arrested on suspicion of felony second-degree domestic battery, said acting Cedarville Police Chief Blayne Irvin.

Police believe Patillo assaulted his brother, Phillip Patillo, because Phillip Patillo wouldn’t get out of a chair, at the home of James Patillo, Irvin said.

James Patillo allegedly bent his brother’s finger and injured it, and pushed him, bruising his ribs. Phillip Patillo is in hospice care, Irvin said.

An officer spotted James Patillo outside in the neighborhood Tuesday afternoon, and when the officer tried to stop him, James Patillo ran and locked himself in the shed of Phillip Patillo’s backyard, Irvin said.

Officers tried to talk James Patillo out of the shed, but he wouldn’t come out. After about an hour James Patillo came out on his own but resisted officers. The officers used a Taser to subdue James Patillo and arrested him, Irvin said.

Irvin said James Patillo did not have any weapons on him when he was arrested. He was booked into the Crawford County Adult Detention Center.
