CORPUS CHRISTI - Two brothers are in jail after a weekend fight on the beach near Zahn Road. Police say Christopher and Cody Rodriguez joined a group of people enjoying a bonfire on the beach late Saturday night.
At some point, both got into their truck and drove over someone's fishing rod and reel. The owner of the fishing gear wasn't too pleased and got into a fight with the men.
Police say the victim grabbed their truck and held on for his life as the brothers drove away down the beach. Christopher Rodriguez, 21, is accused of firing a pistol several times at the guy holding onto the truck. He wasn't hit by gunfire, but let go and fell to the ground.
A short time later, the Rodriguez brothers' truck slammed into a Honda Accord on the beach. Two people in that car were not injured.
Christopher Rodriguez is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. Cody Rodriguez, 29, was also arrested for a probation violation.
