Frank Ocean-Chris Brown police report: Gay slur, shooting threat
TMZ has the full police report from the recent fracas between Chris Brown and Frank Ocean in West Hollywood, and it provides ample new fodder in Chris Brown’s quest to become America’s super-villain.
The report confirms much of what we already know about last month’s incident. Ocean (the report uses his birth name, Christopher Breaux) alleges that Brown took his parking spot at Westlake Recording Studios in West Hollywood, and when confronted about it, Brown and several companions pummeled Ocean.
But the report fills in a few details, including the new allegation that Ocean heard someone (he couldn’t confirm if it was Brown or a member of his entourage) use a gay slur during the fight. Ocean has written about a same-sex love interest in the past.
Furthermore, Ocean reported that during the fight, Brown said, “We can bust on you too,” which is common street parlance for threatening to shoot him.
Ocean has said he won’t pursue charges and has forgiven Brown (though in a more existential fashion than a personal one), and the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department has said it plans to close the case. But these new alleged details make the story even more disheartening.
There may be some cosmic karma coming to Brown though. Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey said Tuesday that there were “significant discrepancies” in the reports of Brown’s court-ordered community service after his 2009 beating of then (and again current) girlfriend Rihanna.
Deputy Dist. Atty. Mary Murray asked a judge not to accept his community service documentation due to “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.” Brown could be sent to jail if he does not fulfill that community service requirement to the judge’s satisfaction.
