James Brown Arrested On Domestic Charge

Soul singer James Brown was arrested Wednesday on domestic violence charges, authorities said.

Brown, 70, was booked into the county jail and was to appear at a bond hearing, said jail supervisor Nicholas Gallam.

Brown, who lives in South Carolina, served a 2 1/2-year prison term after a 1988 arrest on drug and assault charges and was convicted of a drug-related offense in 1998. He was granted a pardon by the state in May.

Known as the Godfather of Soul, Brown was honored last month at the Kennedy Center as “one of the most influential musicians of the past 50 years.”
