GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Glendale police are investigating the brother of an unarmed drug suspect fatally shot by Phoenix police for allegations of sexual assault and threatening the officer involved in the shooting.

Police say 38-year-old Rickey McGee Brisbon, of Glendale, was arrested Friday on an unrelated charge of domestic violence from a June 2013 case. He was also booked for marijuana possession and drug paraphernalia possession.

But authorities say they are investigating a claim that Brisbon physically and sexually assaulted a female.

The female victim told authorities that Brisbon also threatened to kill her and Officer Mark Rine.

Phoenix police say Rine was investigating a tip that Rumain Brisbon was conducting a drug deal Dec. 2 when he mistook a pill bottle in Brisbon’s pocket for a gun and shot him.
