Whitney Houston: Bobby Brown Hit Me

Whitney Houston had a one-inch bruise on her cheek and a cut upper lip when officers responded to a call from her home this week, and police were considering today whether to pursue charges against her husband, singer Bobby Brown.

The pop singer told officers that Brown beat her after he "confronted" her when she returned home Sunday night, according to a police report. No one was arrested.

Fulton County District Attorney spokesman Erik Friedly said the case had not been turned over to the office today. "I don't know what the situation is," he said.

Houston told police that Brown, 34, hit the left side of her face with an open right hand. He then went to the airport for a flight to Los Angeles, the Fulton County Police report said. Houston, 40, then contacted police.

Searching for Bobby Brown

Police said they were trying to reach Brown to get his side of the story.

In August, Brown served seven days in DeKalb County Jail for violating his probation for a 1996 drunken driving conviction. He also served 26 days in a Florida jail in 2000 for an earlier probation violation.

Houston and Brown have been married since July 1992. They have a 10-year-old daughter, Bobbi Kristina.
