Venisha Brown, daughter of the late James Brown (pictured in both photos above), is being held in the Richmond County Jail, in connection with a hit-and-run in North Augusta, South Carolina. Authorities say Brown was wanted for hit and run and possession of a stolen vehicle. The 47-year-old is being held on a more than $5,000 bond for a string of charges. She’s accused of stealing a car on one side of the river and trying to run over a co-worker on the other. Augusta, GA and South Carolina are so close, the states are just a river and a bridge apart.
Brown is said to have stolen a church vehicle/van, running down a church worker with the van and various other violations and charges.
Brown is facing several charges in both South Carolina and Georgia. She will be charged with grand theft auto, assault and battery, leaving the scene of an accident and receiving stolen goods.
Venisha Brown is the one daughter of James Brown who can emanate his dance moves so well. She squared off her father’s dance moves with M.C. Hammer in honor of her father at his funeral services in 2006.
