Singer Chris Brown's nationwide tour included an unusual pit stop: the Palm Beach County Jail. He was scheduled to perform a 7pm Thursday concert at West Palm Beach's Coral Sky Amphitheatre, and the AP reports that after he was finished he "walked off stage ... and into the hands of waiting sheriff's deputies."

He was arrested on a felony battery charge and released after posing bail. The sheriff's office didn't provide details, but CNN reports the arrest was in connection with an outstanding out-of-county warrant from 2017. TMZ speculates that it's all tied to allegations that Brown attacked a photographer in Tampa last year. "All indications point to that case." (More Chris Brown stories.)
