More trouble brewing for Chris Brown. The R&B superstar is being investigated for a misdemeanor battery that occurred early Monday morning at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
According to a press release from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, police responded to a call from Sunrise Hospital where an adult male victim was being treated for non-life threatening injuries sustained as a result of a battery.
Brown was playing basketball in his hotel suite at the Palms and got into a verbal altercation on the court, which led to a physical fight. The victim claims he was punched by Brown and prepared to defend himself before being hit by another male allegedly from Brown’s camp.
The victim took himself to the hospital where he was treated and released. Detectives were unable to speak with Brown when they arrived at the hotel.
Brown, who turns 26 today, has been given the option of signing a citation for misdemeanor battery, or having the case submitted for prosecution.
In March, the singer completed his probation over his 2009 assault on Rihanna.
