Written by News on 09/07/2018
Chris Brown has been arrested moments after stepping off stage in Florida.
The 29-year-old singer was taken into custody for “an outstanding warrant” in a nearby county – but US officials have not said what the warrant was for.
Officers approached Brown following his performance at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach on Thursday night.
He was released from jail after paying a $2,000 (£1,512) bond.
On the same evening, a new post appeared on his official Instagram page, which is followed by over 44 million fans.
Alongside a picture of a bare-chested Brown, the caption read: “What’s NEW????? Show tomorrow!!!”
He is scheduled to perform at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre in Tampa, and later will be headed to the close by bars in Tampa, Florida on Friday evening. The father-of-one has had several previous brushes with the law, including a conviction for beating then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and a restraining order against another ex-girlfriend in 2017.
Brown is currently performing his Heartbreak On A Full Moon Tour, which has been running since June.
Sky News has contacted Brown’s agent for a comment.
