VIDEO Club claims Chris Brown punched photographer


Chris Brown is accused of doing what Chris Brown does during an Easter weekend throwdown at a Florida nightclub.

Brown was in town to get down and turn patrons’ frowns upside down during a paid appearance at the AJA Channelside in Tampa, FLA. When the soul-singing bad boy and his entourage dropped in around 1:30 Monday morning, they insisted that the house photographer stop taking photos.

A little later, while CB was in the DJ booth, the photographer in question started snapping some pics of the crowd–and Brown took offense.

In a video posted to YouTube, Brown (wearing red) appears to take a jab at someone in the shadows. His bodyguard (wearing yellow) is seen doing his best to stay in-between the combatants as a voice over the PA is heard pleading for everyone to “chill.”

AJA made it clear that they are holding Brown responsible for what happened in a post to Facebook:

Dear patrons:

Incidents like the ones caused by Chris Brown and his team are very sad to see. As everyone witnessed he showed up to the club at around 1:30am. After only a few minutes of being there, Chris Brown himself and his team assaulted our club photographer and proceeded to walk out of the venue. AJA Channelside and our employees apologize for the inconvenience. Assault charges were pressed and we are dealing with the proper authorities accordingly.

We appreciate your constant support!

TMZ reports that the DJ claims to have had his lips swollen by Brown.
