R&B Singer Chris Brown Accused of Battery; Las Vegas Police Investigating

LAS VEGAS (TheBlaze/AP) — Las Vegas police are investigating an allegation of battery against R&B singer Chris Brown.

R&B singer Chris Brown appears at Los Angeles Superior court Monday, July 15, 2013, where a judge revoked Brown's probation after reading details of an alleged hit-and-run accident and his behavior afterward, but the singer was not ordered to jail. Another hearing is set for Aug. 16. The singer has been on felony probation in the 2009 beating of former girlfriend Rihanna. (Credit: AP)

Lt. Jeff Goodwin says authorities received a call shortly before 10:30 a.m. Saturday about the alleged battery at the Palms Casino Resort. Goodwin would not release any details about the allegation, saying the investigation is still going on.

A woman told TMZ she was at a private party in Brown’s suite, got her cellphone past security, snapped a photo of Brown — and she claimed he yelled at her and punched her once in her eye.

Brown’s attorney and publicist did not immediately return messages seeking comment.

Brown was freed from felony probation last year, more than six years after he attacked then-girlfriend Rihanna. The singer pleaded guilty to felony assault in that case.
