Football Star Jim Brown Arrested

June 17, 1999

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Hall of Fame football player and actor Jim Brown has been arrested on suspicion of threatening his wife.

Brown was taken into custody Tuesday evening after police got a call from his wife. He was freed on $50,000 bail.

On Wednesday, Brown, 63, and his wife, Monique, 25, said outside their Hollywood Hills home that they are still together and are working out their differences.

``I did call 911. I kind of overreacted,″ Mrs. Brown said. ``In those situations, you get emotional and you’re not thinking straight. I was in no harm. There was no threat towards me. And that’s it.″
