In South Carolina, Venisha Brown, the daughter of the late James Brown, is being charged with theft by taking a motor vehicle in Richmond County and is being held for North Augusta authorities, according to Richmond County sheriff’s Investigator Billy Dixon.

North Augusta Public Safety has issued warrants against Brown for possession of a stolen vehicle, leaving the scene of an accident and first-degree assault and battery.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that police responded to the accident scene around 9 a.m. Monday, where they found Hope Ellis Campbell, 46, of Grovetown, with injuries.

Campbell told officers she had spotted her employee, Brown, in a Chevrolet Suburban stolen from St. Stephen Ministries on Greene Street on Sunday and was trying to gain control of the vehicle when she was injured.

Campbell told officers that she reached into the sport utility vehicle to take the keys but that Brown accelerated, dragging Camp­bell into and over the hood of another vehicle parked near the Suburban.

Deputies recovered the stolen car early Tuesday morning at approximately 1 a.m. They were later called to an altercation in the 500 block of Broad Street, where they found Brown arguing with another woman.

    Wow, she looks like she’s through something. I would never try to stop a stolen vehicle unless there was a child involved. I would contact police and let them deal with the situation.
