The "Godfather of Soul," James Brown, surrendered to authorities in Aiken, S.C., Tuesday on charges of beating and shooting at his wife and then put up $15,000 bond so he can go on tour in South America this week. Adrienne Brown, 38, claims Brown shot at her car and hit her with a pipe Sunday but the soul man claims he never laid a hand on her and that she's just mad because he won't let her go on the tour. "They've had some problems," said Brown's lawyer, Bill Weeks. "We were in the process of initiating divorce proceedings against her."
