Audio Report:
Blair 911 call
The Hillsborough State Attorney's Office won't prosecute Brian Blair on child abuse charges. Blair was arrested on Father's Day after a confrontation involving his two sons. Assistant State Attorney Rita Peters characterized the scuffle between Blair and his 17-year-old son Brett as "discipline," given the history between the two. When Bradley Blair, the younger son, called 911, he told dispatchers that his brother had "gone crazy," the memo said.
