Chris Brown was arrested following a performance in West Palm Beach on Thursday night in connection with an incident in Tampa last year.
Brown, 29, was arrested Thursday on an out-of-county warrant, Palm Beach County jail records showed.
The warrant for a charge of felony battery stems from when he reportedly punched a photographer in Club Aja around 1 a.m. on April 17, 2017, according to Tampa police. After investigating the incident, police sent the case to the State Attorney's Office and a warrant for Brown's arrest was issued in August.

Brown was booked into the Palm Beach County jail at 11 p.m. Thursday and was released less than an hour later after paying a $2,000 bond, jail records show. A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman told the Associated Press the battery charge and warrant stemmed from Hillsborough County.
Earlier that night, Brown performed his Heartbreak on a Full Moon Tour in West Palm Beach at the Coral Sky Amphitheatre at the South Florida Fairgrounds.
WPBF 25 News reports the arrest happened just minutes after he finished Thursday night's show.
Brown is scheduled to perform Friday night in Tampa at the MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre at the Florida State Fairgrounds, according to his tour website.
Five years earlier, at least 10 witnesses, including rapper Tyga, testified that Brown snatched a cellphone out of a woman's hand outside the Cameo Theater on Washington Avenue. Brown said she tried to snap his photo when he was inside his Bentley at 4 a.m. on the South Beach street in February 2012.
The Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office concluded that there was no evidence that Brown intended to steal the phone or that he deleted the photo. A felony charge in that 2012 incident would have triggered a violation of his probation over an altercation with his then-girlfriend, R&B star Rihanna.
Brown was arrested in 2009, charged with beating Rihanna inside a car. Later that year, the Los Angeles Times reported he pleaded guilty to the felony assault as part of a plea deal.
