Pop singer Chris Brown is kicking off the new year on a very bad note. The 26-year old is reportedly being investigated by the Las Vegas police after a woman claimed he punched her and stole her cell phone during a party.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department officers, who responded to the report of battery yesterday morning, disclosed that the incident happened outside a hotel room at the Palms Casino Resort. The alleged victim was attending a party in one of the hotel rooms when she got into an altercation with Chris Brown after she tried to take a photo of him with her phone.
