Singer Frank Ocean wants Chris Brown charged over brawl
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Rising R&B artist Frank Ocean wants fellow singer Chris Brown prosecuted following a brawl over a parking space at a Los Angeles-area recording studio, authorities said on Monday.
Brown is serving five years probation for assaulting his on-and-off girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 and risks having his probation revoked should charges be filed.
In the incident on Sunday, sheriff's deputies responded to a call about a fight involving six men in West Hollywood. The deputies cited witnesses as saying that the Grammy-winning Brown, 23, punched Ocean during the brief altercation.
No charges have yet been filed, but Ocean "is desirous of prosecution in this incident", said Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore.
