Chris Brown was arrested Thursday night after finishing the West Palm Beach show of his Heartbreak On A Full Moon Tour. Sheriff’s deputies were responding to a felony battery charge.
The singer allegedly punched a man in a Tampa nightclub last year for taking a photo of him without his permission, Tampa police spokesman Stephen Hegarty said.
“Incidents like the ones caused by Chris Brown and his team are very sad to see. As everyone witnessed he showed up to the club at around 1:30am. After only a few minutes of being there, Chris Brown himself and his team assaulted our club photographer and proceeded to walk out of the venue,” the nightclub shared on their social media last year.
“AJA Channelside and our employees apologize for the inconvenience. Assault charges were pressed and we are dealing with the proper authorities accordingly. We appreciate your constant support!”
Brown was arrested at the Coral Sky Ampitheatre at the South Florida Fairgrounds and released an hour later after paying a $2,000 bond. The singer doesn’t seem too phased by his arrest. His tour will continue tonight.
Brown has been arrested on assault and battery charges three times, most notably in 2009 after physically abusing then-girlfriend Rihanna. A second arrest occurred in 2013, for which bail was set at $250,000.Note: Populove is currently undergoing site maintenance following a hiatus.
