“The July 5 arrest of entertainer Christopher M.

According to Hillsborough County court records exclusively obtained by Radar, a warrant was issued for Brown’s arrest on August 14, 2017, nearly four months after the incident.


Club Aja photographer Bennie Vines was capturing the crowd at 1 am on April 17 of last year when suddenly he said he was attacked by Brown, who was making an appearance at the spot.

“For an unknown reason, the Defendant struck the victim on his face with a closed fist,” the responding Tampa officer wrote in the police report obtained by Radar. “The victim sustained injuries to his upper and lower lip.”

As Radar previously reported, Brown was arrested after a concert last night in West Palm Beach, Florida.

He was booked and promptly released from custody.

Brown has a history of assault accusations. He infamously plead guilty to beating ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, and served five years of probation.

Another ex, Karrueche Train, obtained a permanent restraining order against him in 2017 after she alleged he abused her and even threatened to kill her.
