Brown was accused Aug. 6 of choking a 19-year-old household member to the point she could not breath. The teen also had multiple injuries on both arms, allegedly from being grabbed around the arms, police alleged in the August arrest reports. Consequently, Brown was arrested for assault of a household member that impeded breathing on Aug. 6. He was released from jail the next day on a $10,000 bond.

Brown was indicted on the assault impeding breathing charge during the Nov. 6 Hopkins County Grand Jury session, according to court records.

The 43-year-old Sulphur Springs man was also arrested Dec. 23, 2019 on a warrant for not taking care of an expired registration charge.

Jail records also show that Brown has one prior assault arrest on his record, a July 23, 2006, assault causing bodily injury to a family member charge.
