Chris Brown, a well-known face in the music industry, and not for the right reasons, was arrested again for punching a photographer during a paid club appearance.

The 29-year-old singer was handcuffed on Thursday, July 5, 2018, right after performing at the Coral Sky Amphitheater, in West Palm Beach, as part of his nationwide Heartbreak on a Full Moon tour.

According to TMZ, a police force waited for Brown to finish the show before placing him under arrest for an outstanding out-of-country warrant from last year.

Brown was taken to the station at 11 p.m. but was released nearly an hour later after posting $2 000 bail. He was booked on a felony battery warrant from the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office.

The 29-year-old has become quite familiar with the law in the past years. It all started with the physical assault charges brought upon him in 2009 after he hit Rihanna, who was his girlfriend at the time, at a pre-Grammys party.

He was sentenced to five years probation and community service. Later, in 2013, his probation was revoked and he found himself involved in a hit-and-run in Los Angeles, although the charges were later dropped.

He was still given an extra 1000 hours of community service for the incident. A few months later, Brown was arrested yet again, this time with his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, after an altercation at a hotel in Washington D.C.

Brown pleaded guilty and Honorable Senior Judge A. Franklin Burgess Jr. reduced the charge to a misdemeanor, which allowed the singer to be released from jail without bail.

Soon after that, Brown checked himself into rehab but ended up getting kicked out after going into a fit of rage and breaking his mother's car window during a session. He was sentenced to 131 days in jail after failing to comply with the rules at an anger management facility but was released on probation.
