"As everyone witnessed, he showed up to the club at around 1:30am. After only a few minutes of being there, Chris Brown himself and his team assaulted our club photographer and proceeded to walk out of the venue. AJA Channelside and our employees apologize for the inconvenience."

No stranger to legal trouble, Brown now faces problems with the cops, the club said.

"Assault charges were pressed and we are dealing with the proper authorities accordingly," the club said about Brown's "sucker punch."

Brown, who was arrested after beating his girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, fled the scene in Tampa before police arrived.

Vines reportedly wanted to press charges for a "minor laceration to his lip."

Brown's attorney did not respond to Radar's request for comment.
