Chris Brown just dodged a bullet!
It was reported yesterday that Breezy was a suspect in a battery case after he allegedly punched a man during a basketball game in Las Vegas.
The man claiming to be punched
got paid off had a change of heart and is deciding not to press charges.
“The victim alleging that he was battered by recording artist Chris Brown has told LVMPD detectives that he no longer wants to go forward with criminal charges,” police said in a statement Tuesday.
The man told police he’d been playing basketball at the Palms Casino Resort when an argument broke out and Brown punched him. When he prepared to defend himself, he said, another man who was with Brown hit him.
“A verbal altercation on the court led to a physical fight and the victim was punched by another male subject who was later identified as 25-year-old recording artist Chris Brown,” police said in a news release.
Chris Brown’s publicist, Nicole Perna, denies Brown was ever involved 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.”
Good for Chris.
