ATLANTA – A man has been indicted on charges of stabbing singer Bobby Brown's (search) nephew during a fight at a restaurant.
Marque Dixson (search), 27, was indicted Friday on one count of aggravated assault and two counts of aggravated battery, the Fulton County district attorney's office said.
The incident occurred May 23 as Brown and others were celebrating his father's birthday, police said. Witnesses told police that as guests were leaving, someone bumped into someone else, causing a fight.
Two men in Brown's entourage were stabbed in the neck during the fight. Dixson is accused of stabbing one of them — Brown's nephew.
The stabbings happened at Justin's Restaurant and Bar, which is owned by rapper and producer Sean "Diddy" Combs. Brown was not involved in the fight.
Dixson is currently free on $50,000 bond.
Brown lives in nearby Alpharetta, north of Atlanta, with his wife, Whitney Houston.
