James Brown Arrested

Soul legend JAMES BROWN is in serious trouble with American police again - he's been arrested on domestic violence charges.

The I GOT YOU (I FEEL GOOD) star, 70, was whisked away by cops from his Beech Island, Aiken County, South Carolina home yesterday morning (28JAN04) after they were called to the residence. He's currently incarcerated in an Aiken jail awaiting a bail hearing scheduled for today (29JAN04).

A spokesman for Aiken County Sheriff's office says, "Mr Brown will remain in the county jail overnight, prior to his bond hearing on Thursday. He has been charged with criminal domestic assault."

It's not Brown's first run-in with the law - in 1988 he served a prison term after an arrest on drug and assault charges and was convicted of a drug-related offence in 1998.

But the state of South Carolina forgave the singer for his crimes last May (03) and granted him a pardon.
