Michael Brown: TV ad star is in the dock.
Ex-hand surgeon and international dildo transporter Michael Brown is set to stand trial in Harris County District Court September 12 on a felony assault charge involving his wife, Rachel.

Brown was indicted in January for an August 2010 incident in which he allegedly twisted his wife's arm behind her back. (The indictment was amended last week and no longer includes the "behind her back" part.)

Assault is a misdemeanor, but Brown's charge was enhanced to a felony because he pleaded no contest in 2002 to aggravated assault in Montgomery County; the charge stemmed from an incident in which he beat his previous wife with a broken bedpost. She was seven months pregnant at the time. For beating the shit out of a defenseless and pregnant woman, the heavy hammer of Texas justice fell upon Brown's head, and he received ten years' probation. The felony charge carries a penalty range of 2-10 years in prison.

Rachel Brown filed for divorce after the August 2010 incident, and her attorney alleged in Family Court last March that the ex-doc hired a hit man to kill her.

Brown, who's represented by Dick DeGuerin, lost his medical license in 2006 after testing positive for cocaine. (The Brown Hand Center's Web site prefers the term "retired.")

However, there is at least one silver lining to come out of all of this: The Hand Center finally got rid of that creepy "Daddy's little girl" commercial...

Surely he's going AWAY, behind bars this time! Come on Harris County Jury, we're on wife #4 here! What does it take to get this man behind bars where he should have been in November of 1999 when he Assaulted Wife #3 (prior to the Aggravated Assault on wife #3 in 2001 when he beat her with a bed post).  Who the hell gets 10 years probation on a second degree felony that carries 2-20 years! It never ends with this narcissistic, 10-96, coke snorting, wife beating, so called man! It's a miracle that this is not a murder trial, but someone will die if this man is not sent to prison.  It's just a matter of time.

Put the punk in prison in general population and see how well he assaults other inmates.

What's his defense? That he didn't lay a HAND on her? Had to be said.

Is there an adequate English word or phrase for what this guy is?  Douche just doesn't seem to cut it.  I hope they are keeping his daughters the hell away from him.

And because "the heavy hammer of Texas justice" will probably, again, fall on him like a feather, PLEASE keep his name in paper.  His hypocrisy will probably have him knocking up a younger, dumber wife and putting her kids all over a new set of commercials in a few years.

You guys crack up.  All newspapers should be like this.

I hope the jury back burners him for a good long time.  He's so freakin creepy.  And that commercial, ick.  Even though the hand center is now running actually professional ads, you won't find me there if I ever have a need like that.  He has forever tainted it.  Better that they buy him out and rebrand.

The best news is that his wife is having an affair with Jeff Bagwell.  Have you ever met Erica???? Congrats to Jeff, he finally came to his senses. What a b..ch~~~  Her claim to "fame" is that she married a baseball player, so I guess that gives her carte blanche to treat people, whom she deems under her, like crap!!!  There is such a thing as carma.
