Chris Brown has found himself in trouble yet AGAIN! This time, a man is accusing him of punching him during a basketball game in Vegas. Get the deets and take a listen to Jill Scott’s newest single “Fools Gold” inside….
Things aren’t looking good for Chris Brown a day before his 26th birthday. It’s being reported the R&B crooner got into a physical altercation with a man during a basketball game early this morning in Las Vegas. And now, police suspect him of battery!
Here’s what we know….
Following the mega-fight festivities, Breezy hit the court to play basketball around 3AM at the Palms Casino Resort inside the Hardwood Suite where he was staying, according to TMZ. The “Ayo” singer was shooting hoops when he and an unidentified man got into a heated argument. The feud escalated to Breezy allegedly punching the man, resulting in the cops being called.
Police told CNN, “A verbal altercation on the court led to a physical fight and the victim was punched by another male subject who was later identified as 25-year-old recording artist Chris Brown.”
Chris’s Brown’s camp responded with their own statement (via his publicist Nicole Perna) where he denied being involved in the confrontation.
“Chris is currently in Las Vegas as he is performing at Drai’s on May 5th and receiving a Key to the Strip that day as well. He has a suite at the hotel that has a basketball court and invited friends to come play. An unruly individual showed up uninvited and was removed from the premises. Chris was not in an altercation with this person.”
As it stands now, we do know that the alleged victim was treated for injuries at Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center and released. We also know that Las Vegas Metropolitan Police detectives went to the hotel to talk to Chris but he was not available.
Chris has been given the option of signing a citation for misdemeanor battery, according to LVMPD, or having the case submitted to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution.
At press time, neither Chris nor his attorney has said if he’ll sign the citation or pursue another avenue. We’ll keep you posted.
