"Despite a criminal record dating back to an armed robbery conviction in his teens, Brown managed to become a certified music icon. ... By 1988, Brown once again found himself tangling with the law. First came allegations of assault on then wife Adrienne Brown. And just a year later, after Brown allegedly threatened people with a handgun, he sent police on an interstate car chase, with police opening fire on Brown's pickup truck. He was sentenced to six years in prison, paroled after two and a half. Brown had several more brushes with the law through the 1990s, arrested multiple times for drug possession and domestic abuse." --CNN
