Bobby Brown Arrested For Hitting
Wife Whitney Houston
Bobby Brown was arrested and charged
with battery for allegedly hitting his wife Whitney Houston during a
domestic dispute on Sunday night.
Brown turned himself into authorities on Wednesday, was charged and then
The charges stem from a 911 call Houston made on Sunday night. According to
Fulton County Police spokesman Kurtis Young, Houston suffered a cut upper
lip and bruised cheek.
Houston told police that Brown hit the left side of her face with an open
right hand. She made the 911 call after Brown had left the residence to
catch a flight to Los Angeles.
Brown’s attorney says that the couple hoped to work out the matter privately
but it looks like authorities have a different idea.
Brown is currently on probation in neighboring DeKalb County for a DUI and
DeKalb County authorities are now trying to determine if this incident
violates the terms of his probation.
Brown is scheduled to appear at a preliminary hearing January 7th. If
convicted of the battery charge, Brown could be sentenced up to a year in
jail and a $1,000 fine. If Brown is found to have violated his probation he
could be sent to jail.
