Chris Brown under investigation for assault, says Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department


Rapper Chris Brown is in trouble. Again. This time, Los Angeles police say that Brown is under investigation for his role in an assault in West Hollywood over the weekend.

Up to six men were fighting Sunday night in a dispute that may have begun over a parking space, reports the Associated Press.

“The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim,” said the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in a statement.

There are also reports that the victim in the assault was Grammy Award nominee Frank Ocean. On Twitter early Monday, Ocean said: “got jumped by chris and a couple guys. lol. i only wish everest was there.”

Charges were not yet laid against Brown, who has been in trouble with the law before. In 2009, he was charged with assault and making criminal threats after an incident with then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the Grammy Awards. There is also his alleged fight with rapper Drake at New York club W.i.P. in June of 2012. The club later sued for $16 million in damages.
