Chris Brown Arrested – 06 Jul 2018
Chris Brown was arrested on Thursday night, moments after wrapping up his concert in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The 29-year-old singer was taken into police custody by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for an out-of-county warrant, according to online court records.
Police waited for Brown to finish his set at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre before immediately escorting him into a cruiser, TMZ reported.
He was booked at 11:00 p.m. local time and placed on $2,000 bond. Brown posted the bond and was released just before midnight, according to records.
The warrant was for felony battery and was issued in April 2017 by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office, a spokesperson for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office said.
The singer has had several run-ins with the law, including physical assault charges following an incident with his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009. He was charged with felony assault and making criminal threats in that incident, and received five years probation and community service.
In 2013, Brown and his bodyguard were arrested and charged with felony assault after an alleged altercation outside a hotel in Washington, DC. The charge was reduced to a misdemeanor in court the next day, and Brown was released from jail without bail.
Later that year, Brown was kicked out of a rehab facility after smashing his mother’s car window during a family session. A judge ordered him to immediately enter into another rehab program.
