Reports indicate authorities were waiting at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre as the concert ended and arrested him for an outstanding warrant out of Hillsborough County for felony battery.

Details about the circumstances of that the charge contained in that warrant were not immediately released. A TMZ report, however, indicates the incident related to a photographer’s claim that Brown assaulted him at a Tampa club last year.

“What’s NEW,” he wrote, adding an rolling-eyes emoji and a reference to an upcoming show.

Brown has encountered legal troubles for the better part of a decade, dating back to his guilty plea in 2009 on one felony count of assault against then-girlfriend Rihanna. Upon that conviction, he received a five-year probated sentence. As People reported, he has since had several other brushes with the law.

Subsequent issues including violation of the terms of his probation led to community service as well as stints behind bars, in an anger management facility and in rehab.
