Men charged in Greenwich bar assault

Two Greenwich men who are accused of assaulting a woman and her husband during a bar brawl have been charged.

Jason and Bret Wilson, brothers who reside at 6 Maple St., Greenwich, are each facing a charge of assault, according to Greenwich Police Chief Steve Dorsey.

The men turned themselves into Norwalk Municipal Court and posted $500 bond each in lieu of sitting in jail, Dorsey said.

Jason Wilson, 30, and Bret Wilson, 26, both weigh more than 200 pounds and stand over six-foot tall, according to court records.

They are accused of involvement where a 39-year-old woman was brutally beaten outside of the Hunter's Brew bar late in June as she and her husband were attempting to break up a large fight, police records stated.

The fight apparently erupted after one of the bar patron's familial connections was discovered and resulted in more than eight people.

The woman and a witness told police she was put in a headlock and hit several times until she fell. As the victim rose to stand up, one of the men is accused of punching her directly in the mouth.

The woman's injuries included chipped teeth, cuts on her gums and lips. Her glasses also were broken during the assault.

Her husband was held down and assaulted as he tried to rush to his wife's aid, the couple and witnesses told police.

Police records indicate the Wilson brothers have been in similar trouble before. Local court records indicate both men have been charged with a variety of traffic violations as well as being disorderly.

The most recent charge against them is a first degree misdemeanor, court records stated.

Bret Wilson is scheduled to appear for a hearing on July 22, court records stated.

Having already pleaded innocent to the charge against him, Jason Wilson's pretrial is scheduled for July 31.
