Politics and alcohol don't mix, a Provo man found out the hard way this weekend.
Police said the man and his brother had been drinking and discussing politics and presidential candidates at the brother's house, near 1100 S. 1000 East in Provo, when the discussion became heated, according to a police affidavit filed in 4th District Court.
The man, who is from Washington, got angry enough that he punched his brother in the face, according to the affidavit.
The men continued throwing punches and the brother's girlfriend tried to break it up, but she got thrown through a screen door with glass, receiving minor scrapes, according to the affidavit.
Responding medics said the brother needed a few stitches above his eye.
Police responded about 3 a.m. and arrested the man, who they said was the aggressor, according to the affidavit.
