Chris Brown was arrested on Thursday night, moments after wrapping up his concert in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The 29-year-old singer was taken into police custody by the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office for an out-of-county warrant, according to online court records.
Police waited for Brown to finish his set at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre before immediately escorting him into a cruiser, TMZ reported.
He was booked at 11:00 p.m. local time and placed on $2,000 bond. Brown posted the bond and was released just before midnight, according to records.
The warrant was for felony battery and was issued in April 2017 by the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s office, a spokesperson for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office told PEOPLE.
Police said Brown allegedly “sucker punched” a 29-year-old club photographer in Tampa during a paid appearance at AJA Channelside around 1 a.m. local time on April 17. The alleged victim claimed that Brown attacked him because he was taking photos after Brown arrived at the venue for an afterparty “showing.”
Brown had left by the time officers arrived on the scene and the victim declined medical attention, though he suffered a “minor” cut to his lip, according to police. The victim said he intended to prosecute.
In a statement on Facebook at the time, the club wrote, “Incidents like the ones caused by Chris Brown and his team are very sad to see. As everyone witnessed he showed up to the club at around 1:30am. After only a few minutes of being there, Chris Brown himself and his team assaulted our club photographer and proceeded to walk out of the venue.”
“AJA Channelside and our employees apologize for the inconvenience,” the statement continued. “Assault charges were pressed and we are dealing with the proper authorities accordingly. We appreciate your constant support!”

Paris Saint-Germain clinched the French Ligue 1 title after second-place Lille could only manage a 0-0 draw at Toulouse on Sunday.
Lille had to win their match to have any chance of catching PSG, but the newly-crowned champions are now 16 points ahead of their only rival with five matches left.
After failing to clinch the title in the past three matches, drawing one and losing two, Tomas Tuchel’s side can celebrate their eighth title in their history ahead of their home game against Monaco next weekend.
