Chris Brown Could Be Facing Battery Charges After Another Basketball Fight
Chris Brown may be in trouble again and a late night basketball game maybe the reason. According to TMZ, a the 3 a.m. basketball game turned into fight between Brown and his opponent. Las Vegas police named the singer as a suspect for battery after he allegedly punched another man during the late night basketball game. Thisis50 are reporting that Jeremih was involved in the altercation, but there's no official confirmation.
Video from the late night game show Breezy and Jeremih playing against each other(see below). The irony of this situation is that Chris Brown just settled a previous basketball fight case last month and has only been off of probation for two months.
Brown's publicist Nicole Perna sent in the following statement denying involvement in the confrontation.
"Chris is currently in Las Vegas as he is performing at Drai's on May 5th and receiving a Key to the Strip that day as well," Perna said in a statement. "He has a suite at the hotel that has a basketball court and invited friends to come play. An unruly individual showed up uninvited and was removed from the premises. Chris was not in an altercation with this person."
Update (May 5, 2:53 p.m.): TMZ reports that the case is close. The victim called police and told them he wanted to drop the case.
