PETAL POLICE OFFICER WILLIAM H. BROWN, ARRESTED FOR CHILD MOLESTATION, CHRGED WITH DOMESTIC ABUSE AND ASSAULT OF ESTRANGED WIFE

[Excerpts] A police officer who resigned from the Petal Police Department on Monday amid allegations of child molestation had been charged with several crimes stemming from an incident in late June, Ellisville Police Chief Bruce Russell said Tuesday. William H. Brown Jr., 34, was arrested June 27 on two counts of domestic abuse and one count of simple assault for an incident that occurred at his estranged wife’s home on June 25... In that incident, Brown visited the home where he allegedly assaulted one and struggled with two members of his wife’s family. The domestic abuse charges did not pertain to his wife. “It got a little out of hand and the police department got involved, but it wasn’t him kicking the door down and beating his wife,” Russell said. Brown filed counter charges against the others at the home, and all charges have been stayed by Ellisville City Judge David Lyons pending the settlement of the divorce case. Petal Police Chief Lee Shelbourn said he was aware of the domestic situation in Ellisville and had taken what he felt were appropriate disciplinary actions for a case that had not yet reached a conviction. Brown, Shelbourn said, was moved to an investigator position within the department shortly after the charges were filed. While it was neither a promotion nor a demotion, it gave Shelbourn an opportunity to keep a closer eye on the officer. “We put him under more scrutiny until this was resolved,” Shelbourn said. Shelbourn acknowledged that Brown is his second cousin but said the family relationship did not get the officer any preferential treatment. “My daughter works here too, and I would fire her if she messed up and she knows that,” Shelbourn said... Although he had only been with the Petal department since February, Brown has a lengthy career in law enforcement, Russell said. In fact, he worked with Russell in Ellisville from 2000 to 2004. Russell said he believed Brown also had worked for New Augusta, Laurel and Richton police departments. “At one time, he was a personal friend of mine, and you couldn’t ask for a better man to work side-by-side with,” Russell said. “But at the same time, nothing excuses touching a child. I’m not saying he did it or didn’t. That will come out in trial... As police officers and chiefs, you can do a thousand things right, but when an officer does one thing wrong, all those other things are forgotten,” he said. “From changing tires to working on cars to breaking up fights, if one person makes an allegation, it can all end.”

  2. I think that would be nice. Not everyone is cut out to be a good cop. Too much power for some.
