Chris Brown, an American singer, songwriter, and actor, was arrested on Thursday, July 5, based on felony battery charges.
The arrest occurred in West Palm Beach, Florida, just moments after the 29-year-old finished his concert at the Coral Sky Amphitheater. According to TMZ, the police was waiting outside for Brown to end his show before taking him into custody.
He was taken into police custody based on a warrant released due to felony battery that he committed just last year inside a Tampa Bay club when he “sucker punched” a photographer.
According to the police, the warrant was issued by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office back in April 2017.
Less than an hour after his arrest, just before midnight, Chris was released on $2,000 bail. Once he got out, he immediately addressed the incident on his Instagram page where he is followed by 44 million people.
“What’s NEW?????? Show tomorrow!!!!,” Brown wrote and shared a picture of himself shirtless on the stage.
And so on Friday, he hit the stage at MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Amphitheatre as a part of his Full Moon tour which will end in August with the final show set for Las Vegas T-Mobile Arena.
The alleged attack on the club photographer in 2017 apparently happened at around 1 am in AJA Channelside after the photographer took pictures of the singer.
This, however, wasn’t the first time this Tappahannock-native singer hit the headlines due to bad behavior.
He has dealt with a series of legal issues in the past, including the infamous arrest after he brutally beat up his then-girlfriend Rihanna in a car in Hancock Park, California. All of this happened right after the pre-Grammys party.
As a result of the pressure he was under, he pleaded guilty to assault with the intent of causing bodily injury.
Later on, in 2013, he was arrested again for felony assault in Washington D.C. In 2016, he was yet again taken into custody after he committed an assault with deadly weapon.
