"Neither individual was very cooperative," the Clive police chief told the New York Daily News. "Our detectives will be following up as soon as their medical situation allows us."

Police were dispatched in the early hours of Wednesday morning. The fight apparently started inside the house, but the brothers were outside of the home by the time police arrived. According to the Des Moine Register, they reportedly appeared intoxicated.

A patrol officer told BBC Newsbeat both men have been released from the hospital. Neither has been arrested, but police are investigating the incident.

Corey Taylor, the band's lead singer, tweeted Wednesday evening, "From what I've heard he's okay. We're sending him all your thoughts. Thank you for that."
