Chris Brown's battery charge dropped in Florida
Good news for the 30-year-old singer.
Things are looking up for Chris Brown.
According to a new report from The Blast, the singer is no longer being charged with battery from an alleged nightclub fight in Tampa, back in 2017. Earlier this morning, the state of Florida officially dropped the charge.
Back in July of 2018, the father-of-one was arrested in West Palm Beach after allegedly punching a photographer at a nightclub. Brown reportedly hit the photographer with a closed fist in the face. The photographer was hired to take pictures at Tampa’s Club Air. After coming in contact with Brown, the 30-year-old singer allegedly told the photographer to move away. The photographer claims he suffered injuries to his upper and lower lip. Although the incident was captured on video by club security, Brown was nowhere to be found when cops arrived at the scene.
That same night, Brown performed at the Coral Sky Amphitheater. Following the show, Brown was taken into custody for an outstanding warrant for third-degree felony assault. Ultimately, Brown paid $2,000 for bail and later pleaded not guilty to the charge.
In addition to Brown celebrating his charge being dropped, the multihyphenate is about to embark on his IndiGOAT tour with Ty Dolla $ign. The tour kicks off at Moda Center in Portland, Ore. on Aug. 20. Breezy is set to visit other cities including Denver, New Orleans, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston and Phoenix. The tour is slated to wrap up mid-October.
More recently, Brown made a guest appearance at Drake’s annual OVO Festival. During his performance, Breezy and Drizzy performed their hit “No Guidance,” for the first time live. Currently, the track’s visual has over fifty million views on YouTube. “No Guidance” serves as the eleventh single on Breezy’s latest LP, Indigo.
