AUGUSTA, Ga. -- The daughter of music legend James Brown reportedly stole an SUV and injured her boss before she was arrested this week.

Venisha Brown is charged with theft by taking a motor vehicle in Richmond County and is wanted by North Augusta authorities on charges of possession of a stolen vehicle, leaving the scene of an accident and first-degree assault and battery.

Authorities say Hope Ellis Campbell, Brown's employer, was injured when she tried to gain control of a Chevrolet Suburban stolen from St. Stephen Ministries, which Brown was driving. Brown reportedly accelerated, dragging Campbell over the hood of another car parked nearby.

Brown remains in custody at the Richmond County Jail. Her bond is $5,700, according to jail records.
