Brown stands accused of alleged domestic violence, “Criminal Obstruction of Breathing.” a Class A misdemeanor that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail or three years probation.
Saratoga’s leading trainer was arrested for allegedly choking a woman when she was at his home. He was released from the Saratoga Springs Police Facility Thursday morning after posting bail.
The woman alleges that Brown pushed her down the stairs, pinned her to the ground, choked her, and ejected her from his house.
Brown’s lawyer claims that he was defending himself from an intruder who came into his home.
According to Subrina Dhammi’s report, Judge Francine Vero doubted the story’s veracity, stating “this court is not in the business of accusing domestic violence victims.”
The Saratoga police later confirmed that Brown and the woman were “acquaintances.” An investigation into the matter is ongoing. A court date has been set for Brown to appear September 2.
