Chris Brown Faces U.K. Police Questioning Over Alleged Glass Bottle Assault At Nightclub

U.K. police will reportedly question Chris Brown over an alleged assault he committed against a man in a nightclub. Moreover, the accuser claimed that he was hit over the head with a glass bottle in a brawl. According to The Sun, the man in question went to a hospital following the fight at Tape nightclub in Hanover Square. While they were non-life-threatening injuries, it's yet another instance of controversial actions from Brown this week after he reportedly mocked disabled people.

“A row broke out with a guy and Brown’s crowd and the man was hit over the head with a bottle,” a witness said of the incident. “He tried to get up off the ground to escape but he was surrounded and then punched and kicked before security broke it up.” Furthermore, local police authorities reviewed CCTV footage and seek a conversation with the R&B star when he returns to England for performances at The O2. Also, the artist recently tossed a fan's phone at a show recently, adding damning context to these allegations.

In addition, the 33-year-old recently spoke on an altercation he faced at a club. Furthermore, a video surfaced online of Brown getting testy with a stranger in a club. Then, he took to social media to say he was ready to take things further. "You know you tucked your tail,” he wrote, "you was scared to come outside. You would’ve been doing TIK TOKs from a hospital bed. Weird a** n***a.” Of course, these revelations came after Brown's intense social media rants about people trying to call out his wrongful behavior.

Meanwhile, the singer's latest collab with Chlöe drew ire on social media due to said history of violence against women. However, the Bailey sister responded to these pushbacks on Creed III's red carpet. “I just want the music and art to speak for itself,” she expressed. “I’m excited for In Pieces, dropping March 31, and I have very exciting news dropping tomorrow. So, I can’t wait to let my fans know.” Regardless of your take on that, stick around on HNHH for the latest on Chris Brown.
