Chris Brown who has been in legal trouble before, most notably regarding a domestic violence incident with then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, was wanted on a felony battery warrant from the Hilllsborough County Sheriff’s office, according to WPTV.
It was gathered that he was later released after paying a $2,000 bond, the station said. This report is coming barely 24 hours after TMZ reported that the singer dropped more than $350,000 on a bulletproof SUV.
The Loyal hitmaker, who also owns a 2015 Rezvani Beast, slapped down the cash for the Rezvani Tank several months ago but he had to wait for it to be ready as he wanted it custom-made so that it can withstand multiple beatings from weapons. Jamie Foxx also has a taste for Rezvani Tanks. The actor/singer was spotted driving the SUV around the Los Angeles area several times earlier this year.
Recall also that in 2009, Chris Brown was sentenced to five years’ probation and six months’ community labor for the beating of Rihanna, and ordered to stay away from his former girlfriend for the next five years.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg told Brown that he could be sent to state prison if he violated any terms of his sentence, including an order to stay 100 yards away from Rihanna unless they’re attending music industry events.
A probation report prepared for Tuesday’s sentencing describes two previous violent incidents. It said the first happened about three months before the February beating while the couple was traveling in Europe; Rihanna slapped Brown during an argument, and he shoved her into a wall. In the second instance, Brown allegedly broke the front and passenger side windows on a Range Rover they were driving while visiting Barbados, Rihanna’s home country. Neither attack was reported, the probation report states.
