Twitter Starts Rumor About Chris Brown’s Arrest
It was reported via Twitter on Sunday night that singer Chris Brown was arrested for having an illegal gun in his possession during the BET Awards.
Connecticut-based hip hop radio station Hot 93.7 even tweeted a confirmation:
hot937@hot937 “BREAKING NEWS!!!:Chris Brown Arrested for Possession of a GUN at #BETAWARDS!!!”
However, this turned out to be a rumor rather than a fact.
The speculation was Brown brought a gun to the award show to protect himself against Drake. It is alleged the two men had a fight at a bar recently.
Brown was seen partying after winning Best Male R&B Artist after the show, and Drake didn’t even show up for the ceremony to begin with!
According to his probation officer, Brown is continuing to fulfill all his requirements. He was placed on probation in 2009 following his attack on Rihanna.
The two performers were dating at the time.
