🏳️‍🌈 Pride flag stolen by brother. Should I have called police?

A Pride flag was stolen from outside the garage of a Reddit user and caught the culprit on camera- their brother. The user reached out to their brother to return the flag, but after being met with homophobic slurs, they called the police. The brother is on probation and could potentially go back to jail. Now, the user is questioning if they were wrong to involve the police. Was the user justified in calling the police, or should they have handled the situation differently? The comments and reactions to this situation are sure to spark a debate.
