Chris Brown has been arrested in Florida
The singer Chris Brown has been arrested just moments after coming off stage at a concert in Florida, authorities have said.
The 29-year-old was detained after finishing the gig at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach and taken to County Jail. According to police, his arrest was in connection to an outstanding warrant in a nearby county, however, it's unclear what this warrant was for.
TMZ reported that shortly after finishing the show, Brown "hopped off stage and into a police cruiser" that had been waiting for him to finish the performance.
According to a spokesman for the police, Brown posted a $2,000 bond and was released shortly after being detained by officers.
After being released from jail, the star appeared on his official Instagram account to share a photo of himself on the stage with the caption:"What's NEW????? Show tomorrow!!!"
Thing singer is currently performing on his Heart Break On A Full Moon Tour and it's believed that the rest of his shows will go ahead as scheduled.
Of course, this isn't Brown's first run-in with the law. Back in 2009, he was convicted for assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, after a pre-Grammys party in February of that year. Brown was sentenced to five years of probation, a year of domestic violence counselling and six months of community service.
He was also handed a five-year restraining order that required him to remain 50 yards away from Rihanna at all times, with it being reducing to 10 at public events.
In a documentary released last year, Brown alleged that Rihanna had been kicking and punching him during an argument about another woman. He then says that he "really hit her" and bit her arm.
Appearing to show remorse for his actions, the singer said that he felt like a "monster" and said that the incident would "haunt me forever."
"I remember she was trying to kick me. It was just her just being upset. But then I really hit her. With a closed fist, like I punched her and it busted her lip. And when I saw it I was in shock. Why the hell did I hit her?
"From there, she just spit in my face, spit blood in my face, so it enraged me even more. It was a real fight in a car."
Brown said he realised it was a "petty, stupid fight" and pulled over, leaving Rihanna to drive home on her own.
Speaking about the police picture of Rihanna that showed her injuries, he said: "I look back at that picture and I'm like, 'That's not me, bro'. I hate it to this day. "That's going to haunt me forever."
In the documentary, which was titled "Chris Brown: Welcome to my Life," he revealed the relationship started to go downhill after he admitted to cheating on Rihanna with a former employee, despite previously denying it.
After that revelation, Brown said Rihanna "hated" him for what he had done to her and claimed that their relationship quickly turned volatile. "She didn't care, she just didn't trust me after that," he said.
"From there, it just went downhill because it would be fights, it would be verbal fights, physical fights as well...
"We were fighting each other. She would hit me, I would hit her. But it never was OK."
While the reason behind the warrant remains unknown, it doesn't seem like something Brown needs to massively worry about. Besides, he's a celebrity, so he'll probably end up paying his way out of any trouble.
