‘Ugly Betty’ actor cut off his mom’s head

Michael L. Brea is being billed as an actor on Ugly Betty except he’s probably only been on a few episodes. Regardless, Michael was arrested in Brooklyn this morning after he killed his mother with a samurai sword and chopped off her head while screaming biblical passages.

According to the police, the suspect — Michael L. 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 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.”

I’m glad the neighbor had the wherewithal to tell his dad to call the cops instead of picking the phone up himself. I know if I’m witnessing a possible homicide, I wouldn’t be able to reach the phone either. You don’t see something like this every day, you know.
