Chris Brown accused of stealing woman’s phone

Chris Brown has been making headlines since his recent appearance on the Grammy Awards.

Great debate amongst media and fans ensued after Brown returned to the music awards event, three years after he assaulted then-girlfriend Rihanna on the eve of the industry affair.

Next, he is reunited on record with Rihanna, encouraging more headlines and debate.

Now, Brown is accused of stealing a fan’s phone.

Billboard reports Brown is under investigation for allegedly swiping a female fan's phone out of her hands and driving away after leaving a nightclub in South Florida on Sunday (Feb. 19), Miami Beach police told NBC 6 Miami.

"B--ch you ain't going to put that on no website," Brown reportedly told 24-year-old Miami resident Christal Spann after she approached and took a photo of Brown and rapper Tyga as they were getting into a black Bentley outside club Cameo. Spann told police that Brown opened his window, took her $500 white iPhone 4S and drove away.

Police responded around 4:40 a.m. but Brown is believed to have left the Miami area already. It is unclear if Brown, who performed at the American Airlines Arena on Feb. 16, is still in possession of the phone. The state attorney's office is reportedly preparing an arrest warrant and police have listed the offense as "robbery by sudden snatching."

Tyga has not been implicated. Brown has not commented on the accusations.

The "Turn Up the Music" singer is currently serving five years of probation after pleading guilty to the brutal assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. Earlier this month a judge in Los Angeles praised Brown for his good behavior, but decided he should continue reporting to a probation officer in Virginia.
