WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Singer Chris 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.
A sheriff’s spokeswoman said the entertainer was released after posting $2,000 bond on the battery charge issued by the Tampa Police Department. No details about the allegations in the arrest warrant were immediately available.
The 29-year-old entertainer’s record of violence includes a guilty plea to felony assault for beating up his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and a 2016 arrest on a charge of assault with a deadly weapon.
He’s currently in the middle of his Heartbreak On A Full Moon Tour.
The headline on this story has been corrected to say battery, not assault; the story has been corrected to reflect the warrant was from Tampa Police, not the Hillsborough Sheriff.
