Singer Chris Brown, who has made headlines in the past for his run-ins with the law, is in trouble again. The New York Post’s Page Six reports that Brown was arrested Thursday night in West Palm Beach, Fla., for allegedly hitting a photographer in April 2017 in Tampa.
“The warrant alleges Brown battered Bennie Vines Jr., who was hired by a club to take photos during an event hosted by Brown,” The Post reports. “Vines told officers that while he was snapping photos, Brown punched him. Brown was gone by the time officers arrived that night. Vines refused medical treatment, but told officers he wanted to prosecute because of a minor lip cut.”
Brown, who is currently on his Heartbreak on a Full Moon Tour, was arrested at one of his concerts.
“On Thursday, Brown walked off stage after his concert in Florida and into the hands of waiting sheriff’s deputies, who arrested him on a felony battery charge and booked him into the Palm Beach County Jail,” The Post reports. “A sheriff’s spokeswoman said the entertainer was released after posting $2,000 bond on the battery charge issued by the sheriff’s office in Hillsborough County.”
