According to-People, the warrant was for felony battery.

Chris Brown was arrested in Florida on Thursday night, according to CNN.

Brown was in West Palm Beach to perform at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre, and he was arrested immediately following the concert, according toPeople.
He was arrested on an outstanding out-of-county warrant that was issued last year, the Palm Beach County sheriff's office said.

According toPeople, the warrant was for felony battery and was issued in April 2017 by the Hillsborough County sheriff's office. Brown allegedly punched the AJA Channelside's photographer during a paid appearance at the Tampa club, then left the scene before officers arrived. The victim declined medical attention and said he intended to prosecute.

Brown was released on bail about an hour after he was booked on Thursday.

Brown has had several run-ins with the law, including the infamous charges of felony assault and making criminal threats against then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He and his bodyguard were also arrested in 2013 after an alleged altercation outside a Washington D.C. hotel, and Brown was kicked out of a rehab facility later that year after smashing his mother's car window during a family therapy session
