Chris Brown Arrested, Chris Brown’s arrest rumors circulated while the singer was backstage at the Shrine Auditorium, getting ready to perform for the BET Awards. Various reports came in via Twitter that the artist was detained for gun possession.
Chris Brown’s arrest reports turned out to be nothing more than empty speculation, although the premise was certainly believable. The credibility of the report was bolstered by Connecticut hip-hop radio station HOT 93.7, who tweeted about the incident when the false news first broke.
“BREAKING NEWS!!!: Chris Brown Arrested for Possession of a GUN at #BETAWARDS!!!” posted their account before Brown performed.
The unconfirmed reports were subsequently scattered around the Twittersphere, despite the impossibility of the claim. The story claimed Brown had the gun in his possession to fend off a possible attack from rappers Drake and Meek Mill, whom the singer clashed with last month at an NYC night club.
