Chris Brown Accused Of Stealing Fan’s Cell Phone

Chris Brown could be in hot water again if a Florida woman’s claims that he stole her cell phone prove true. According to an incident report, Brown is accused of “robbery by sudden snatching” at the Miami Beach nightclub Cameo early Sunday morning.

The alleged victim, Christal Spann, 24, told police that after spotting Brown and rapper Tyga leaving the club through a side door, she and her friends followed the artists onto the street. Brown got into a black Bentley as Spann took out her cell phone and snapped a photo of the singer while he sat in his car.

“At this time [Spann] stated that [Brown] reached through his car window snatched her phone from her hands and said, ‘Bitch you ain’t going to put that on no website,’ ” the report says. He then allegedly took the iPhone 4S, rolled up his car window and drove off.

No arrests have been made and no warrants have been issued so far in the case, but TMZ reported that the incident is under investigation. According to E! Online, the Florida State Attorney’s Office is preparing a warrant for Brown’s arrest on suspicion of “robbery by sudden snatching.”

Though the often tempestuous singer
 got a positive probation report just days before his Grammy win and performances
 in connection with his guilty plea to felony assault on former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, he could be facing some legal troubles as a result of the Miami episode. On February 9, a Los Angeles judge ordered Brown to continue reporting to a probation officer
 in his home state of Virginia as part of his five-year probation sentence in the Rihanna assault.

Because he still must obey all laws while on probation, TMZ reported that an arrest in the alleged Miami phone snatching could land him behind bars for a probation violation. The site claimed that the district attorney who prosecuted Brown in the Rihanna case is keeping an eye on things, and if the L.A. County Probation Department recommends that action should be taken, Brown could have his probation revoked and be sentenced to several years in prison.

A spokesperson for Brown could not be reached for comment at press time.
