FLORIDA: Singer Chris Brown was arrested for battery following a concert in Florida, authorities said, the troubled star’s latest brush with the law.
Police seized the R&B star shortly after he left the stage Thursday night in West Palm Beach. He was booked on a charge of felony battery and released after he paid a $2,000 bond, the sheriff’s office said.
The Palm Beach County sheriff’s office said that Brown was arrested on a warrant from Tampa but did not give specifics.
The celebrity news site TMZ said the warrant was related to an incident last year when Brown punched an in-house photographer during a paid appearance at a nightclub.
The singer was due to return to Tampa on Friday for a concert as part of an ongoing tour.
Brown, 29, has a long history of violence. In May, a Los Angeles woman said she was lured to the singer’s house and repeatedly raped by him and a rapper.
