Chris Brown was arrested late July 5, 2018, just moments after he finished a concert at the Coral Sky Amphitheater in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was spotted being led into a police car, as police were waiting in the venue for the performer to finish his set. According to CNN and The Independent UK, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office did not elaborate on what the warrant was for. He was released an hour later after paying a $2,000 bond.

Brown posts on Instagram following arrest

Brown is currently on his nationwide tour promoting his eighth studio album "Heartbreak on a Full Moon." The album, with 45 tracks, was released in October 2017.

Brown has only been on tour for a few weeks as his tour started June 19 in Auburn, Washington at the White River Amphitheater.

He posted on Instagram following his release to show highlights from his concert in West Palm Beach, and to announce that he would be continuing his tour with a performance in Tampa, Florida tonight (July 6).

He seemed to show little remorse in another Instagram post with the caption "what's new???" and an eye-roll emoji. No comments from Brown's officials or attorneys have been released yet.

Brown's violent history

The R&B singer has a history of violence. In 2009, he was convicted for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna at a pre-Grammy's party. According to the Independent, Brown was "sentenced to five years probation, one year of domestic violence counseling, and six months of community service." A restraining order was also issued against him, prohibiting him from being within 50 feet of Rihanna at all times.

Snapchat attempted to revive the incident in March 2018 with an advert that gave users the choice to "slap Rihanna" or "punch Chris Brown." Many users complained, including Rihanna herself. Rihanna commented that the app was using "money to animate something that would intentionally bring shame to domestic violence victims.”

Brown made headlines in 2013 for more violent incidents. According to CNN, "Brown and his bodyguard were arrested and charged with felony assault after an alleged altercation outside a hotel in Washington, DC." Brown was later released without bail as the charge dropped to a misdemeanor.

Brown was kicked out of a rehabilitation facility that same year following an incident with his mother. Brown smashed his mother's car window during a family session at the facility and was ordered to enter a different program at a new location.
