Chris Brown threatened to shoot Frank Ocean after a fight at a West Hollywood recording studio, according to documents filed in connection with allegations that Brown faked fulfilling his court-ordered community service.
An incident report disclosed that the Jan. 27 altercation began when Ocean approached Brown in the studios lobby, saying Brown had parked in Oceans assigned parking spot. Brown reached out to shake Oceans hand but Ocean refused, the report said.
Brown then allegedly punched Ocean in the side of the face, prompting two people in Browns entourage to join the attack.
After the beating, Brown allegedly yelled, We can bust on you too! the report said, saying, bust was a slang term on the street to mean shoot.
Los Angeles County sheriffs officials said this week they plan to close the investigation because Ocean has said he did not want to press charges. Brown is on five years probation after pleading guilty to a 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.
As part of his probation, he was required to perform 180 days of community labor and complete a 52-week batterers intervention program.
On Tuesday, Los Angeles County prosecutors filed a motion alleging he faked fulfilling the community labor hours, which were to be served in Virginia.
