Radio Station Funded Brown's Release

LATEST: A Washington D.C. radio station funded BOBBY BROWN's release from jail on Wednesday (28FEB07), in exchange for the singer's forthcoming appearances on air. The DON'T BE CRUEL hitmaker, 38, was arrested in Attleboro, Massachusetts on Sunday night (25FEB07) for failing to pay two months worth of child support to his ex-girlfriend KIM WARD, mother of his children LaPRINCIA, 17; and BOBBY JR, 14. On Sunday, Brown was taken to the Norfolk County Correctional Center where he was ordered to remain for 30 days, but was released on Wednesday night after the owed $19,150 (GBP9,820) was paid. Originally it was thought Brown's brother TOMMY had paid the fees, however D.C. station Hot 99.5 FM admitted they had funded the singer's release, on condition he worked for them for a week. DJ KANE, who hosts morning broadcast THE KANE SHOW, explains, "In exchange for the money, he agreed to be an employee of our radio station for one week. "Certain news stories have stated incorrectly that Bobby's brother fronted his bail. Those stories are false. Hot 99.5 has entered into a binding contract with Bobby Brown." An arrest warrant was previously issued for the star in October (06) when he failed to attend a child support court hearing, but he swiftly paid $11,000 (GBP5,640) fees to avoid arrest. In June 2004, Brown was sentenced to 90 days jail after failing behind child support payments for three months. However, Brown paid $15,000 (GBP7,700) and the sentence was suspended. Brown is currently in the middle of divorcing superstar WHITNEY HOUSTON after 14 years of marriage.
