STAFFORD, TX --KTRK in Houston has learned that gospel music superstar James Fortune was arrested in Stafford, Texas.

According to a spokesman for the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office, the Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter is charged with aggravated assault family violence. He was booked on October 23, and posted the $20,000 bond the next day.

This is not Fortune's first brush with the law. He was charged with injury to child in 2002 for burning his stepson, who was 4-years-old at the time, with scalding hot water. According to a lawsuit filed in 2012 by the child's father, Fortune put the child in a bathtub and allegedly held him there.

Fortune pled guilty to the charge and completed a six-year deferred adjudication. That lawsuit was dismissed.
