Singer Chris Brown has been arrested again

Singer Chris Brown was arrested in Palm Beach, Florida, on Thursday night after finishing a concert at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre, CBS News reports. The 29-year-old was released on a $2,000 bond, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office confirmed.

While it wasn't immediately clear why Brown was arrested Thursday, celebrity gossip website TMZ claims it was over an outstanding felony arrest warrant from when Brown allegedly attacked a photographer in a Tampa nightclub last year. Brown did not directly address his arrest on Thursday, although he posted a photo of himself to Instagram asking "what's NEW" with an eye-roll emoji, adding that there is still a "show tomorrow."

Brown has a history of alleged violence stemming back to his conviction in the 2009 assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna. In 2013, he was charged with misdemeanor assault after hitting a man outside a Washington, D.C., hotel, and in 2016 he was arrested for alleged assault with a deadly weapon.
