Chris Brown Named as Suspect in Las Vegas Brawl

Chris Brown may be in trouble again after being accused of fighting another man over a game of basketball.

According to TMZ, the fight occurred early this morning at the Palms Casino Resort, when Brown and some guys were playing basketball. Somewhere along the way, Chris got into a a verbal altercation which turned physical.

You can read the full press release detailing the incident below:

At approximately 3:42 a.m. on May 4, 2015 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 investigation initiated by the LVMPD Violent Crimes Section indicated the victim had been playing a game of basketball at the Palms Casino Resort located at 4321 West Flamingo Road. A verbal altercation on the court led to a physical fight and the victim was punched by another male subject who was later identified as 25-year old
recording artist Chris Brown. The victim prepared to defend himself and was then hit by another male reportedly with Brown.

The victim self-transported to the hospital where he was treated and released. Detectives responded to the scene at the hotel but Brown was not available to speak with them. Mr. Brown has been given the option of signing a citation for misdemeanor battery, or having the case submitted to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office for prosecution. At that time, Mr. Brown would receive a summons to appear in Clark County Justice Court.

As of this release, the LVMPD has not heard from Mr. Brown or his attorney indicating
whether or not he would sign the citation.

Brown was just released from probation for the 2009 battery-incident with Rihanna, which is good news for him because if he were still on probation at the time of this incident, there’s a good chance he’d have ended up back in jail.
