R&B singer Chris Brown was arrested on Thursday following a concert in Palm Beach, Florida.
Brown, 29, was taken into custody on an outstanding felony battery charge and later released on $US2,000 bail, The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office confirmed to CBS News.
TMZ first reported Brown’s arrest on Thursday. The outlet reported that Palm Beach County police were waiting to arrest him immediately after his performance ended at the Coral Sky Ampitheatre in West Palm Beach.
CBS News reported that Brown was taken in on a warrant issued in Hillsborough, Florida, a town 150 miles northwest of Palm Beach. It’s unclear what the charge is related to.
Brown has a history of arrests.
He pleaded guilty in 2009 to the felony assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna. Brown ended his probation for that case in 2015.
Brown was most recently arrested in 2016 on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon at his home in California, after a woman named Baylee Curran called 911 from inside his house. He was later released on $US250,000 bail.
