Friday, February 19, 2016, Vol. 40, No. 8

NASHVILLE (AP) — Country music producer Tony Brown has been arrested and charged with domestic assault after being accused of beating up a female family member.

The Tennessean reports (http://tnne.ws/1TCYWQ0) that the 69-year-old was booked in to the Metro Nashville Jail on Tuesday on a charge of domestic bodily injury.

An arrest warrant says the woman told police that she was showing Brown pictures for ideas for an upcoming photo shoot, and he told her they were "slutty poses" and slapped her. The warrant says Brown then grabbed her by the face, pushed her to the floor and climbed on top of her and pulled her hair before dragging her down a hallway.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Brown. He is scheduled to go to court on Feb. 29.
