Chris Brown allegedly put the paws on a photographer at a local club in Tampa, Florida early Monday morning.

According to TMZ, Chris was at Aja Channelside for a paid appearance. Apparently the club’s in house photographer started taking pictures when Chris and his team arrived, but Chris wasn’t with it and asked him stop.

Things got messy later on when the photographer started snapping pictures behind Chris in the DJ booth. He claims he was taking pictures of the crowd, but Chris thought he was snapping him, and reportedly ended up jumping over a couch and punching him in the face.

The photog ended up getting his lip split and a swollen jaw. He plans on pressing charges.
