Police: Twin Brothers Arrested After Fight Over Same Woman

A New Year's Eve celebration didn't work out quite the way a pair of Ellington brothers planned Monday in Manchester.

A pair of twin brothers were arrested New Year's Eve after getting into a fight at a local hotel over who would have sex with the girlfriend they allegedly shared. 

According to Manchester Police, Aric Ryan Hale and Sean Peter Hale, both 28, and who both reside at 51 Meadow Brook Dr. in Ellington, were arrested Monday evening after getting into a physical confrontation involving an unidentified 27-year old woman who police said both brothers had a sexual relationship with. 

According to the Hartford Courant, the Hale brothers and the unidentified woman checked into a local hotel and a fight ensued when Sean Hale asked his brother to leave the room so he could have sex with the woman. Manchester police spokesman Capt. Christopher Davis told the Courant that the woman admitted to being in an "open relationship" with the two brothers, and that she would have sex with them "depending on who she chooses to be with that particular day."

Both Hale brothers were arrested at their Ellington residence later that evening.

Aric Ryan Hale was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct, two counts of third-degree assault and one count of third-degree criminal mischief. Sean Peter Hale was charged with two counts of disorderly conduct and third-degree criminal mischief. Both were released on $10,000 bond and are scheduled to appear in Manchester Superior Court on the charges on Feb. 7, 2013. 

Davis said the hotel was "trashed" as a result of their confrontation. Police did not specify if the brothers were identical or fraternal twins.

If they weren't twins who shared a girlfriend and it was just two guys smashing up a hotel room on new years eve would this be a story that draws interest? I'm thinking not, but ok I mean the mugshots are way too precious for this not to be a story that gets people reading. I'm guessing most people have had private relationship/romantic entanglements in their lives that would make people take notice if the public had the chance to read about it. It's wrong to fight and bust up a hotel/motel room but did the police really need to "blow up their spot" just because of their "nontradition" sexy time situation, their biological status, and I guess the amazing expressions they made in their photos. Seems a little bit to me like one of the secondary aims (the primary aim of course being to collect evidence on a legitimate crime that occurred and of course I have no problem with that) of the police report/reports on the police report is just to point at the twins and laugh which just seems kind of wrong. How many people are thinking "oh I wish they showed a picture of the girlfriend so I could laugh at her as well"? I bet more than a few. Let's be more kind in the new year, let's not smash up hotel rooms and let's not make fun of the sex lives of consenting adults in the courts, in the papers, and on the TV.

If you think I am wrong in my assessment please examine the comments that have been posted on the courant version of this article: http://www.courant.com/community/manchester/hc-manchester-twins-arrested-0104-20130103,0,7712337.story

Based on these pictures I don't want to see what the girlfriend looks like.
