Singer Chris Brown has denied an accusation that he battered a woman in Las Vegas during a concert after-party.

Las Vegas police reported that the singer, who has had several run-ins with the law in recent years, is a suspect in an investigation of misdemeanor theft and battery against a woman.

Brown, who was in town for the New Year’s concert at Drai’s, is accused of taking the woman’s cellphone and hitting her after she tried to take a photograph with him.

The incident was reported Saturday morning when police received a complaint of an attack inside a hotel suite at the Palms Casino Resort where a party was being held. When officers responded, they were met by a woman “who appeared to have minor injuries sustained as a result of a battery,” according to a press release.
