Chris Brown faces a lawsuit for an alleged assault during a basketball game he participated in.
Singer Chris Brown is being sued for allegedly assaulting a man during a basketball game he and Brown participated in.
According to a lawsuit filed by Malcolm Ausbon Thursday, February 13 (via AllHipHop), Brown and his four-man entourage threatened to assault Ausbon, retreated and then commenced to assault him along with Brown once the game resumed. The suit alleges that Ausbon called a foul on Brown. The singer subsequently threatened to “put these hands on you.”
Ausbon is suing Brown, the unidentified members of his entourage and 24 Hour Fitness for unspecified damages claiming he was the victim of assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligence. After the alleged assault, Malcolm Ausbon was rushed to the emergency room sustaining injuries to his face, neck, head, back, ribs and legs.
The lawsuit also claims Brown was a member of the Bloods street gang and that members of Brown's entourage chimed in during the incident and stated, "If you fuck with Chris, you fuck with us."
