Chris Brown Won't Be Charged Over Drake Nightclub Brawl
By Jen Heger - RadarOnline.com Assistant Managing Editor
Chris Brown won't be charged in connection with the nightclub brawl involving Drake and his entourage in New York City last week, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
Multiple eyewitnesses have told cops that Drake started the melee in the early morning hours last Thursday by throwing a bottle directly aimed at him. A physical fight broke out between Drake and Chris' entourages, with friends, bodyguards and innocent bystanders left bloodied and hurt. As evidenced by the exclusive photos obtained by RadarOnline.com, the club was virtually destroyed in the wake of the brawl. "There was blood all over," an eyewitness said. "Both of their entourages got involved and it all got really out of control really fast. The club was unrecognizable afterwards!"
"Chris and his girlfriend have been interviewed by cops and at this point it looks very likely that neither Chris, nor Karreuche Tran will be charged with any criminal wrongdoing stemming from the nightclub brawl," a source close to the singer tells RadarOnline.com. "Chris has been extremely cooperative and forthcoming with information to the investigating officers, which they are thankful for. Once the bottles started flying Chris did the right thing and just got the hell out of there. Cops have said they probably won't need to interview Chris again, but if needed, he would be more than willing to do so."
Meanwhile, Drake and his entourage are still possibly facing charges.
"Drake and his crew have no plans to talk to cops, and they are under no obligation to do so. However, the way the direction the investigation is heading there definitely will be criminal charges filed against the appropriate individuals," a law enforcement source tells RadarOnline.com.
"Chris just wants to move on from all of this and focus on promoting his new album, Fortune. Chris is focused on his music and will lay low until the album drops on July 3," the insider says.
