Official is charged in domestic disturbance

  • Follow Metro

Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority member Keith Brown was arrested earlier this week after failing to heed a deputy's order to stop stalking his estranged wife, according to a sheriff's office report.

Mr. Brown, who jail records say lives in the 200 block of Duncan Road in Clearwater, was charged with interference with a sheriff's deputy around midnight Tuesday after having been warned earlier that night to leave Sabrina Brown's residence and not return, according to the report.

Mrs. Brown called officers about 9:30 p.m. Tuesday to complain that Mr. Brown was constantly riding by and harassing her with phone calls. A deputy responded and stopped Mr. Brown and told him to leave and not come back. Mr. Brown left, but after the deputy left, Mr. Brown returned about 30 minutes later. Mrs. Brown called the sheriff's department again, but when the deputy arrived, Mr. Brown had already left. Then around midnight, Mr. Brown returned again and was arrested and taken to jail, according to the report.

His $285 bond was paid at 2:40 a.m. Wednesday, according to jail records. He is scheduled to appear in Richmond County Civil and Magistrate Court on Oct. 30.

When asked for a comment Thursday, Mr. Brown said the Richmond County residence was his, not his wife's, and he did not want to discuss the incident.

In May 2006, Augusta commissioners appointed Mr. Brown to the District 4 seat on the City Commission until a special election could be held to fill the term of Commissioner Richard Colclough, who had resigned.

Mr. Brown had qualified to run for the seat, but his residency was challenged by District 4 resident Alvin Mason, and the Richmond County Board of Elections agreed unanimously Mr. Brown was not qualified to run for the seat because he did not meet the two-year state residency requirement.

Augusta commissioners are required to live in the district they are elected to represent, and coliseum authority members must live in Richmond County.

Seems Mr. Brown constantly

Seems Mr. Brown constantly has issues with exactly where he resides. Another example of what is wrong with Augusta's politics. Hey maybe he can get the coliseum authority to pay his legal bill. I mean after all he was either heading toward the coliseum or away from it. Augusta continues to show why it is the laughing stock and will never be the great place it could be.

wyldsfam4: Wasn't this the

wyldsfam4: Wasn't this the estranged wife that stood up in one of the Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority meetings and accused her husband of having an affair with the Authority member who said a vote was not necessary on the $10,000 lawyer bill as they had already approved the first $3,000? If so, I guess it will be considered an Authority matter and the lawyers in the case will be paid for by the public.

I see a Jenkins County

I see a Jenkins County Hospital official charged with misdemeanor sexual battery has quit. I know Mr. Brown will have supporters who say he has only been charged and is not scheduled to appear in Court until October 30, but why doesn't Mr. Brown have the common decency to the same?

Barney Frank is still in

Barney Frank is still in congress. Mr. Brown should study Mr. Frank’s tactics for pulling the wool over the public's eyes.

Aww, they can all get mental

Aww, they can all get mental health treatment now and pass the charge on to their insurance company. Obama and Nancy said so.

There are FAR TOO MANY WOMEN

There are FAR TOO MANY WOMEN who go through changes or minor problems with their husbands who THINK so wrong. God hates divorce.Too many women are in their graves buried and dead because they decided to quote, "go on with their lives,"way too soon before the problems can be resolved with the other men. This is a tactic of the devil to win souls. It is far better to wait than to date too soon. My advice for Mr.&Mrs. Brown is to seek Christ while he may be found.I have NEVER believed in wives calling the police on their husbands or vice versa. Why can't we call on Jesus instead? Jesus will fix the problem far better than any police officer can ever do. This is a set up by the devil to keep Mr. Brown from winning the upcoming election so that another bias official can sit in his spot so that unjust decisions can still occur. My advice to Mr. & Mrs. Brown is to seek God TOGETHER while he may be found. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities and the rulers of darkness of this world AND SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES. Get your concordion out and mediate on what God says about marriage. When this is done, the devil has to flee in every area of your life.

Son of God: IMO your comments

Son of God: IMO your comments today and in previous days qualify you as an uninformed IDIOT. You attribute EVERYTHING to God or the Devil and have no idea when it comes to facts. Do you really think that "Too many women are in their graves buried and dead" because they "believed in ..... calling the police on their husbands or vice versa."? And as far as "This is a set up by the devil to keep Mr. Brown from winning the upcoming election" I wonder what YOU know that is not public record. What election is Mr. Brown in, he's an APPOINTED member of the Coliseum Authority?

SOG, How can he run for

SOG, How can he run for anything in Georgia, he is a resident of SC. I doubt if Jesus will come down and stop a husband from hurting or killing his wife and maybe his children. You need to stop posting!!
