Looks like Chris Brown has found himself in more hot water. 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.
According to ThisIs50, Brown was playing a pickup game against fellow singer Jeremih and his crew. Jeremih’s team won the first game and then there was a rematch, which triggered the fight.
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 tomorrow, 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.
