According to police, Brown, 43, was pulled over for driving while talking on a cellphone and was later taken into custody. Now his lawyer has released a statement in her client’s defense.

“Everyone is innocent until proven guilty, and Mr. Brown was not driving erratically,” lawyer Tiffany Feder said in a written statement. “He was speaking on his cellphone.
