In the news again…Fox 26 News has learned Grammy nominated gospel singer James Fortune has been arrested.
According to staffers at the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s office Fortune was released on a $20,000 bond around 3 pm Friday.
He was charged with assault / domestic violence involving a family member.
The Factor has not been able to reach Fortune’s reps as of yet but we’re working on it.
But the confirmation of the arrest comes from staffers at the Sheriff’s office.
You may remember in 2012 when James Fortune was accused in a civil lawsuit of abusing his then 4 year old stepson (incident allegedly occurred in 2001) by putting the child in scolding hot water.
That son is now 17 years old.
Update: Sources now tell the Factor the alleged victim in this case is Cheryl Fortune. The wife of the gospel singer.
