Frank Ocean Brawl Could Impact Chris Brown’s Probation
Briusin’ Breezy is brawling again and that could be disastrous news for the singer’s probation status.
Grammy nominee Frank Ocean wants to press charges against Chris Brown following their knockdown, drag-out in a Los Angeles on Sunday night. The fight was reportedly sparked after the “Turn Up The Music” singer accused Frank of blocking his car at Westlake Recording Studios.
According to TMZ sources, Chris threw the first punch, cold-cocking Ocean after he disrespected the fellow singer in front of his boys. Chris fled the scene after the apparent incident, while Frank stayed on the scene to speak to officers who arrived. He took to Twitter shortly after the brawl to say he was jumped by Chris and claims his hand injury may affect his live performance at the Grammy Awards next month.
The Los Angeles Police Department has released a statement on their inquiry:
“West Hollywood Station deputies are investigating allegations that Chris Brown assaulted an unnamed victim. Deputies responded to a call of six males fighting at the 7200 block of Santa Monica Boulevard, West Hollywood. Upon their arrival, deputies talked to witnesses who stated that Chris Brown and the victim were involved in an altercation over a parking space. The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim. After a brief fight, the parties were separated. Chris Brown and his entourage left the location prior to the arrival of deputies. The investigation is on-going and investigators will contact Chris Brown at a later time.”
On Monday, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s spokesman Steve Whitmore told Reuters that Ocean “is desirous of prosecution in this incident,” which could have serious implications for Brown’s five-year term of probation. Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting and threatening his then-girlfriend Rihanna during a heated argument in a car in February 2009.
He was placed on five years probation and ordered to complete community service. Brown has one more year of probation left to serve from the highly-sensational incident, but this new brawl with Ocean could see him in hot water again.
In June 2012, Chris and rapper Drake were involved in an altercation at a New York nightclub, which left eight people injured; including San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker. No arrests were made.
