Once released from the hospital, Brandon will be booked into the Hernando County Jail and held on a $25,000. But this isn’t the first time Brandon has been shot by police, according to former domestic partner, Malissa Mineo. Mineo says Brandon is “an abusive alcoholic,” and that police were called to their residence numerous times, due to domestic violence issue. Mineo goes on to say that Brandon admitted that she would “have to act crazy to get her VA benefits back.” Mineo wanted to let RNRF know about Brandon’s past because she fears law enforcement will be blamed for the shooting that occurred on Sunday.
Brandon was arrested in 2001 in Pinellas County for throwing a deadly missile, criminal mischief, and disorderly conduct.
