Chris Brown, Drake Will Not Be Charged in NYC Nightclub Brawl
Innocent until proven guilty.
In the case of Drake vs. Chris Brown in the bottle-flinging bar fight over Rihanna’s supposed love and affection this past June, neither entertainer will face charges in the scuffle.
Drizzy and Breezy made headlines this summer after the two clashed at the NYC nightclub W.i.P. Drake reportedly sent back a bottle of Cristal that Brown bought for the Young Money rapper’s table. (A full recount of the altercation can be read here.) Next thing you know, it’s raining glass bottles at the club.
TMZ reports that the investigation has been closed and authorites will not be pressing charges against Drake, Brown or any members of their entourages, because of the lack of evidence. The club’s surveillance video proved to be a dead end, too dark and grainy to produce any relevant footage. Follow-up interviews that the NYPD conducted with witnesses and suspects were also inconclusive. While the rapper and R&B crooner avoid adding any charges to their rap sheet, several lawsuits remain open. Among the famous guests at the club that evening was NBA dribbler Tony Parker, who claims his eye was injured in the brawl and is asking for $20 million in damages from W.i.P. In return, W.i.P. has filed a $16 million lawsuit against both Chris Brown and Drake.
