Chris Brown 'faces arrest if he returns to UK' over alleged assault

Chris Brown could face arrest if he returns to the UK following an alleged assault, according to reports.

The US music star, 34, was accused earlier this year of smashing a glass bottle over the head of a music producer at London nightclub Tape.

Back in February, Brown allegedly hit the individual – who wished to remain nameless – before he was kicked and punched laying on the floor. 

Speaking to The Sun about the alleged incident, the unnamed individual told The Sun in April: ‘He hit me over the head two or three times.

‘My knee collapsed as well. He’s making out it was one of his entourage but it was him.

‘I’ve spoken to the police and they hope to resolve the matter soon.

‘It’s now in the hands of my solicitor and I can’t comment further’. 

The producer reportedly needed medical attention at the hospital and was discharged with a pair of crutches.

Now, it has been reported that Brown assured police he would cooperate with their investigation and submit himself for questioning after his UK tour ended.

However, his shows concluded on March 29, with The Sun claiming he left immediately afterwards and is now back in the States.

Brown is said to be well aware of the situation and what awaits him when he does venture back across the pond.

A source told the outlet: ‘Chris knows he will be arrested if he goes back to the UK but is still doing everything he can to avoid it.

‘But he is also concerned he could potentially be picked up in any country with an extradition treaty with Great Britain.’

The insider added that ‘nobody can work out why he was ever allowed to leave the UK.’

The Met also said: ‘Two men were due to attend a police station for a voluntary interview on March 29 but did not attend.

‘Enquiries are ongoing to locate them.’

This alleged matter is far from the first time the controversial star has had run-ins with the law.

Back in 2010, he was barred from the UK after being convicted of assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Ex-Home Secretary Priti Patel lifted the ban on Brown entering the UK in 2020.

Meanwhile, in 2015, he had his visa application for Australia denied in 2015 on ‘character grounds.’

More recently, proceedings began to sue him for $20million (£14million) for allegedly drugging and raping a woman.

Brown ‘took legal action’ in response, accusing the woman in a voice note of ‘playing with people’s lives’.

He also made headlines earlier this month when it was claimed he had a bust-up with fellow musician and friend Usher, with Brown’s team allegedly leaving him with a bloody nose.

The singer spoke out after allegations started flying, hitting back at the claims made against him.

Reps for Chris Brown have been contacted for comment.
