James Brown - '20 All-Time Greatest Hits!'button.gif (123 bytes) The family of James Brown stepped in and had the 64 year old singer hospitalized over concerns about his health in South Carolina. Brown's agent has stated that an addiction to painkillers probably initiated the family's actions and the family stepped in after Brown reportedly became distressed while watching television. On January 21st, Brown was released from the hospital. Brown was on pain killers for his back which was hurt doing splits at a recent Florida concert. Brown's reaction to his daughter's actions of having him hospitalized: "It was a mistake... One thing Deana knows, she's not getting any more money from me. Not a dime." Late in January, Brown found himself in trouble with the law again. The singer turned himself into police for charges of marijuana and weapons possession discovered when a court order was used to have officials go to his house and admit him into the hospital in mid-January. Brown told a Georgia newspaper (Chronicle) that the marijuana was used for medical purposes: "I have bad eyes... It was just a little tiny bit." On the weapons found at his home, Brown stated: "I got to have protection... I have guns, and I'm going to keep on having guns."
