Judge Dismisses New Tony Brown Charges
News Channel 5 had reported in June that Brown was accused of following his ex-wife, Jamie, and three others in a Green Hills-area parking lot.
Brown's ex-wife had claimed that Brown showed up at her nail salon and followed her, her fiance and her friends. For his part, Brown released a statement claiming that it was a "coincidental crossing of paths."
The Tennessean reports that Judge Angelita Blackshear heard testimony from two witnesses, including Brown's ex-wife, and on Aug. 15, ultimately ruled in Tony Brown's favor. The judge accepted Brown's defense that he was in the parking lot to meet a business associate.
“This was definitely the outcome we expected as these allegations were absurd from the start,” Melissa Core, a brand manager with Dead Horse Branding, tells the Tennessean in an email.
This isn't Brown's first run-in with the police. He was arrested in Oct. 2013 for domestic assault resulting in bodily injury and this past February on a domestic assault charge. The 2013 charge was later expunged from his record.
Brown suffered a severe brain injury in 2003, after tripping and falling at a business dinner. He has had two brain surgeries and was put in a medically-induced coma. In 2007, a psychiatrist diagnosed Brown with serious depression.
