Bobby Brown's family was involved in a bloody scuffle shortly after a birthday dinner for Whitney Houston's ex-husband.

E! News has obtained the police report, which describes how authorities responded to a call at the W Hotel in Atlanta and that one family member, Shayne Brown, was struck in the head with a bottle by Bobby's sister Tina Brown.

Shayne opted to drive himself to the hospital and Tina left the scene shortly before police arrived, the report explains.

According to TMZ, Shayne had to get stitches for the cut on his head and three other people were injured in the Brown family brawl.

An eyewitness told the site that there was "blood everywhere" as a result of the scuffle—which took place around 1 a.m.

Just a few hours before the conflict, and the birthday dinner, the New Edition singer was seen visiting his daughter Bobbi Kristina Brown in a nearby hospital.

On Wednesday, Bobby released the following statement via his lawyer:

"We are currently investigating the events that led to the hospitalization…We continue to request privacy in this matter. Please allow for our family to deal with this matter and give Bobbi Kristina the love and support she needs at this time."

Meanwhile, the Houstons also spoke out as a family, telling E! News earlier this week: "Bobbi Kristina is fighting for her life and is surrounded by immediate family. As her father already stated, we are asking you to honor our request for privacy during this difficult time. Thank you for your prayers, well wishes, and we greatly appreciate your continued support."
