There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

On Tuesday, it was confirmed that music producer Tony Brown was arrested on a domestic assault charge. Yikes!
A spokesperson for the Nashville Police explained that the country music executive was detained by the Belle Meade Police a little after one in the morning.
Apparently, the Grammy winner got into a verbal altercation with a female family member who called the cops late Monday evening around 11:30 p.m. It's speculated that the victim is Mr. Brown's wife, Jamie Brown. Oh no!
According to the arrest warrant, the fight was about the unnamed woman's "inappropriate" poses during a certain photoshoot. The 69-year-old then slapped the woman across the face after he expressed his disdain for the "slutty" poses she had done.
The report takes a darker turn as it states that Brown allegedly grabbed the woman's face and pushed her to the ground where she supposedly hit her head. The American Music Awards' lifetime achievement recipient then reportedly grabbed the complainant by the hair and dragged her down a hallway.
That's just awful! Luckily, the woman was able to break free and call her parents who advised her to dial 911 — which she did before scooping up her dog and locking herself in her car.
The warrant read that the lady had:
"…several marks on her body and visible signs of her hair being pulled due to the damage of her hair extensions."
Ugh. Not surprisingly, Tony was arrested and held for 12 hours before being released on a $10,000 bond. We guess we'll just have to see how this familial drama plays out.
