Two brothers were charged with assaulting a police officer when authorities tried to break up a fight early Saturday in Naperville.

At 2:24 a.m., officers responded to a fight involving six people near the corner of Washington Street and Chicago Avenue, according to Naperville police. The fight stemmed from an argument about a woman who had been subjected to "harsh language."

Two officers initially responded and called for additional officers, police said. As they attempted to break up the fight, 22-year-old Brandon Rhinhart struck one of the officers in the torso and was taken into custody.

His brother, 23-year-old Tyler Rhinhart, became angry about his brother's arrest and threatened to batter the officer, police said. He was also taken into custody.
