Grammy-winning singer Chris Brown is under investigation for an alleged assault in a West Hollywood parking lot, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said early Monday.
"The altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim," the department said in a statement released early Monday morning.
The "victim" wasn't identified but the celebrity website TMZ - which first reported the fight outside the Westlake Recording Studio - said it also involved Frank Ocean, one of the top nominees at Grammy Awards next month.
Police reportedly responded to a call alerting them to an altercation between six men at a location along Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood.
Officers subsequently spoke with witnesses at the scene, who claim that the fight stemmed from a scuffle over a parking space and that Brown allegedly punched the victim in question.
Per published reports, Brown was supposedly at the studio listening to an artist he represents, and upon leaving, ran into Ocean in the parking lot, who didn't seem too pleased to see Brown there.
In a Twitter posting later, Ocean said he "got jumped by (Brown) and a couple guys" and suffered a finger cut.
No arrests were made. Brown was gone by the time deputies arrived but the department said the investigation is ongoing and Brown would be contacted later.
The incident comes several months after Chris Brown's infamous June 14, 2012 dustup with members of rapper Drake's crew.
