Chris Brown has a new mug shot.

The troubled singer was arrested in West Palm Beach, Fla., on Thursday night after performing at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre. Police were waiting for him at the conclusion of the show for an outstanding felony battery warrant from the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

According to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office booking blotter, Brown, 29, was booked at 11 p.m and released just 52 minutes later after posting bond, which was set at $2,000. He had enough time to pose — looking serious — for a new mug shot.

While authorities haven’t yet said what the outstanding warrant was for, TMZ reports that the it was issued in connection with an assault case. He allegedly attacked a photographer during a club appearance in Tampa last year. A rep for the singer has not yet responded to Yahoo Entertainment’s request for comment.

After Brown’s release, he seemed to make light of the situation on social media. He shared a photo, presumably from last night’s show, captioning it, ” What’s NEW,” along with an emoji rolling its eyes. He also promised fans he’ll be back at it tonight in Tampa. His “Heartbreak on a Full Moon” tour next goes to Alabama, North Carolina, his native Virginia, and then the Northeast.


Brown’s troubles are well known, and he has been arrested multiple times. Of course, the most well-known incident was after he assaulted Rihanna in 2009, leading him to plead guilty to one count of felony assault and be sentenced to five years of probation. However, he was later jailed for almost three months after violating his probation, and his legal troubles just exploded from there.
