Brothers accused in Beale Street fight to face judge

(WMC-TV) - Two brothers accused of injuring four Memphis police officers will head to court Monday.

Police said Myrus Williams and Mario Bills were at Club 152 with a group of people early Sunday morning, but were not allowed inside because they did not meet the dress code.

Investigators said when one of the officers told Williams and his wife to leave Beale Street, Bills punched the officer in the face.

Williams then reportedly tried to take a second officer's gun.

Two more officers also got involved in the scuffle.

Witnesses said trying to fight police is a losing battle.

"That's right, don't fight the law," said witness John Garner.  "It don't work, won't work."

Those officers were injured in the fight.  Their names have not been released.

Both Williams and Bills have been charged with multiple counts of assault on an officer.

At least three other people were arrested for disorderly conduct and public intoxication in connection in the scuffle, including two for yelling at the officers and another for not leaving the scene.
