Connecticut twins Aric Ryan Hale and Sean Peter Hale welcomed in 2013 in fine style after being arrested for scrapping over whose turn it was to make the beast with two backs with a woman described by cops as their "shared" girlfriend.

The pair - "both 28" as this report nicely notes - were in a hotel room in Manchester, east of Hartford, on New Year's Eve with the unnamed 27-year-old with whom, according to local coppers, they enjoy an "open dating relationship". Police spokesman Captain Christopher Davis explained the woman granted sexual favours to the brothers "depending on who she chooses to be with that particular day".

According to police, Sean Hale apparently believed it was his turn for a roll in the hay, but when he asked his bruv to leave the room so he could get busy, Aric refused. Cue fisticuffs and a trashed hotel room, which earned the siblings a cuffing when cops later caught up with them in nearby Ellington.

Both posted $10k bail ahead of an appearance before the beak on 7 February. Aric Hale faces "two counts each of third-degree assault and disorderly conduct and one count of third-degree criminal mischief", while Sean is up on charges of "two counts of disorderly conduct and one count of third-degree criminal mischief". ®
