Has Chris Brown found himself in trouble yet again?

The singer has found himself at the center of reports claiming he was involved in an altercation while playing basketball in his Las Vegas suite at the Palms Casino and Resort over the weekend.

Breezy decided to have a pick-up game with some guys at nearly 4 a.m., when a verbal argument began on the court and allegedly turned physical.

According to Las Vegas police, "At approximately 3:42 a.m. LVMPD patrol officers responded to Sunrise Hospital to investigate a report of a subject who had been beaten. Arriving officers made contact with an adult male being treated for non-life threatening  injuries sustained as a result of a battery."

The injured man, who has not been identified, also reportedly said he was defending himself when another person with Chris hit him as well. Brown's camp, however, denies that the singer had anything to do with the assault.

"Chris is currently in Las Vegas as he is performing at Drais on May 5 and receiving a Key to the Strip that day as well," the statement began.

"He has a suite at the hotel that has a basketball court and invited friends to come play. An unruly individual showed up uninvited and was removed from the premises. Chris was not in an altercation with this person."

Detectives responded to the scene to talk to Brown, but he wasn't available to speak with them. Las Vegas police said they have given Brown the option to sign off on a misdemeanor battery citation or face prosecution by the Clark County District Attorney's office. Authorities say Brown has not responded to the offer.

This comes shortly after Brown was finally off probation for his 2009 assault involving ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

The Los Angeles District Attorney confirmed to E! News in March that the 25-year-old singer's probation has ended after Judge James Brandlin found that Brown had officially completed his 1,000.5 hours of community service and the Probation Department concluded there were no violations.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos told E! News at the time, "I couldn't be happier or more proud of CB."
