Singer Chris Brown’s felony battery case back in Tampa court

Local News

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – R&B singer Chris Brown’s felony battery case was back in Hillsborough County court on Thursday. Brown was not in court, his attorney was. The singer is accused of sucker punching a photographer at a Tampa night club in 2017.

The world-renowned singer was arrested last year on battery charges from the confrontation that happened back in 2017.

Tampa police say the Grammy winner punched a photographer while at a paid event at club Aja in Channelside.

That photographer tells News Channel 8 he was hit so hard, he hit a wall and busted his lip. He plans to sue.

It took months for the state attorney’s office to build a case and formally charge Brown.

Brown’s attorney told us that Brown is being wrongfully accused in the case. The next disposition hearing is July 15th at 8:30 a.m.
