HOUSTON A Harris County grand jury on Friday indicted one of Houston s most recognizable doctors.

Michael Brown the man behind those TV ads for the Brown Hand Center is charged with felony assault.

Specifically, he s accused of physically harming his wife.

On August 13, 2010, Brown s wife told HPD her husband hurt her during an argument at their home. She said the doctor grabbed her arm and twisted it behind her, as though he intended to break it.

Brown was arrested, but he s been free on bond ever since.

It was not his first run-in with the law.

Court documents say Michael Brown was convicted of aggravated assault against a family member in January of 2002 in Montgomery County.

He received deferred adjudication for that offense.
