Chris Brown is accused of assaulting a nightclub's in-house photographer during a promotional appearance.
The incident occurred during Brown's paid stop at Aja Channelside in Tampa. The photographer, who was working for the club, initially snapped pictures of Brown and his entourage arriving at the club around 1.30am, but stopped after Chris' team insisted on no photos. Instead, the photographer took a spot behind the DJ booth, where he was planning on shooting wide shots of the crowd ... and insisted he "didn't see" Chris standing in front of him.
Chris spotted the snapper, cornered him and repeatedly punched his face. Police were called, but Chris had left by the time they arrived. The photog says his lip got split open and his jaw hurts. He's pressing charges against Chris.
