BEDFORD-STUYVESANT — An off-duty firefighter and his EMT sister were arrested early Sunday morning after they fought with police officers at a Brooklyn park, officials said.
Police initially responded to a dispute at Herbert Von King Park roughly 12:20 a.m. and arrested 20-year-old Kenshawn Felton.
While Fenton was being taken into custody, off-duty FDNY EMT Janice Gardner, 35, punched an officer, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
Her brother, firefighter Aaron Gardner, 36, then jumped in and tried to swing at police, officials said.
The initial fight involving Felton started over a woman, according to police. The incident left a 47-year-old man with injuries to his head and torso. He was taken to Kings County Hospital, officials said.
Another victim, a 22-year-old man, was struck with a cane and suffered swelling and bleeding to his head.
Felton was charged with assault, resisting arrest and criminal possession of a weapon, officials said.
The Gardners were both charged with resisting arrest and obstructing governmental administration. Janice Gardner is also charged with assault, while her brother, Aaron Gardner, is charged with attempted assault.
The relationship between the siblings and Felton was not immediately clear.
Two other individuals received summonses for disorderly conduct, according to police.
