Chris Brown arrested for felony battery warrant following concert in Florida

Singer Chris Brown was reportedly arrested on Thursday night - just moments after wrapping up a gig in Flordia.

The 29-year-old is said to have been led offstage in handcuffs at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Pal Beach at around 11pm local time.

According to the Tampa Bay Times, he was arrested on an out of county felony battery warrant. He was booked and released less than an hour later after he paid $2,000 bail.

The publication reports that the warrant, which was issued by Hillsborough County, stems from an incident in April 2017, when he was accused of punching a photographer outside of a nightclub.

Brown was scheduled to perform at the Mid-Florida Amphitheatre in Tampa Bay, Florida, tonight.

He later took to social media to confirm that the gig will still go ahead.
