Update 1:05 p.m.: Officer Albie Esparza tells us police have learned that the suspect and victim were actually brothers who had been arguing over drill bits that night. Police arrested Kevin Guerin, 57, on suspicion of attempted homicide, false imprisonment, and assault with a deadly weapon.

Last week, we told you about the bad friend who stabbed his lifelong pal in the head. Well, maybe there is something in San Francisco's water, because over the weekend another man tried to bore a hold in his friend's head using a drill.

It's like a scene from Frankenstein.

According to San Francisco police, the two brother got into an argument Sunday night on the 100 block of Judson Avenue when one friend pulled out a hand drill, .

Fortunately, the suspect is no handyman. Police said he missed his brother's head and instead hit the victim in the face with the drill.

The 61-year-old man was taken to Kaiser Permanent with facial injuries, and his little brother was taken to jail.

Now that's what you call bad blood in the family.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
