There's a third cop fight caught on tape, and the cop doing the fighting in this one is allegedly the brother of Anthony Abbate, the cop who beat up the bartender last month. This time the victim is a visiting police officer from Washington, D.C. And Mayor Daley would really like it if the police would behave themselves.
