An actor who appeared on "Ugly Betty" was taken into custody in Brooklyn this morning for allegedly killing his mother with a 3-foot long samurai sword while screaming biblical passages.
According to the police, the suspect — Michael Brea — sliced his mother’s head off during the attack.
When cops arrived to the scene around 2:20 AM, officers say Brea was clutching the bible. Cops ultimately had to use a taser to subdue the actor. Brea was taken to a nearby hospital for a psychiatric evaluation with a police escort.
Police claim the scene was "extremely bloody."
A neighbor told WPIX 11, "I hear the brother chasing her [his mother] through the house and he’s just saying a bunch of [Bible] passages like, ‘Repent, Repent, Repent.’"
The neighbor continued, "I heard him chasing her through the house and I hear a loud scream and so I have my father call the cops, call 911."
Brea has not been formally arrested or charged yet.
