Chris Brown is in legal trouble again. As he said himself, what's new?
The 29-year-old singer was detained in Florida on Thursday on an outstanding out-of-county felony battery warrant from 2017 and released from jail after less than an hour after posting a $2,000 bond. The warrant had been issued after photographer reported to police that Brown had punched him during a paid club appearance.
E! News had reported at the time that the alleged victim, Bennie L. Vines, suffered a busted lip after the incident, which took place at Club Aja in Tampa. Vines, who works for the venue, said Brown "sucker punched" him for allegedly taking photos and that the singer left the scene by the time police arrived.
After his arrest, Brown posted on Instagram, "What's NEW????? Show tomorrow!!!!"
