Detective Rick Decker of the Terre Haute Police Department stated that Brown became angry at his mother while she was attempting to fix him a can of soup. Brown allegedly beat his mother and locked her in a closet.

He was booked into the Vigo County Jail late Thursday.

His next court appearance will be Wednesday for filing of formal charges. His bail was set at $60,000 with no 10 percent allowed.
