TMZ reports the charge stems from an alleged assault on a photographer at a Tampa nightclub in 2017. After his arrest, Brown was booked at the Palm Beach County Jail and released on a $2,000 bond, a spokesperson told the AP.

As Complex points out, Chris Brown shared an Instagram post early Friday morning, writing "What’s NEW🙄?????"

Brown currently faces a civil lawsuit from a woman who alleges she was raped in his home by a friend of Brown's.
