Late Friday afternoon, Rob Brown addressed the media, along with his wife and family. They say the charges against the Fresno Fire Chief are unwarranted.
Fresno County sheriff's deputies say Chief Brown was intoxicated when he threatened to kill multiple family members Wednesday night, and they say it got physical, too.
Brown's family told reporters the arrest was just the result of an over reaction to a 911 call.
