Defiant Brown Leaves Jail

Soul singer JAMES BROWN has left jail after his arrest on suspicion of domestic abuse, telling a court he did not hurt his wife.

The GET UP (I FEEL LIKE BEING A) SEX MACHINE hitmaker, 70, was arrested by Aiken County, Georgia police yesterday (28JAN04) after his wife TONI RAE BROWN, 33, was found with scratches and bruises on her right arm and hip - allegedly inflicted during an argument with Brown.

However, Brown - who was ordered not to contact Toni Rae by police - denies he shoved his spouse at their Beech Island home and insisted at a preliminary hearing he would never have caused her pain.

He said, "The main thing is I would never hurt my wife and beat up on her like that. I love her very much."

If found guilty, Brown faces a $500 (GBP294) fine and 30 days in jail.
