Ugly Betty and Step-Up 3D actor Michael Brea won’t be getting any acting gigs where he’s going. He has been arrested for fatally stabbing his mother with a sword, decapitating her.
Yannick Brea, 55, was heard screaming by neighbors as her son chased her around their Brooklyn apartment home at around 1:30 AM Tuesday.
Neighbor Gregory Clare recalls:
“I hear the brother chasing her [his mother] through the house and he’s just saying a bunch of like [Bible] passages like, ‘Repent, Repent, Repent,’”
“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.”
Michael Brea was heard referencing the ‘architect of the universe,’ which is a term used by Freemasons to mean a supreme being, or god. He was also heard shouting at his mother to ‘REPENT,’ before stabbing her with a 3-foot ceremonial use sword and decapitating her.
When the police arrived they tasered Michael and took him to a hospital for psychiatric evaluation, where he allegedly said:
“When I looked at my mother, I saw the devil.”
That will be an awkward Thanksgiving dinner. Sad, sad news for the rest of the Brea family.
R.I.P. Ms. Brea!
