The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office revealed that the singer was arrested on an out of county warrant and was later released after posting a bond of $2,000 bond. Law enforcement sources told TMZ that Brown's arrest is based on an outstanding felony warrant in Tampa. "It appears the warrant was issued in connection with an alleged attack at a Tampa nightclub last year. Chris was in the DJ booth when he allegedly attacked a photographer," the article elaborated.
Soon after the arrest, Brown's Instagram handle posted a picture of his performance with the caption "What's NEW????" followed by an eye-roll emoji and "Show tomorrow!!!!"
