It's only been three months since Chris Brown ended his probation stemming from his 2009 felony assault case, but it seems as though trouble is following him again.

On Monday a man told Las Vegas police that Brown punched him during a basketball game at the Palms Casino Resort. The unnamed man said that an argument broke out during the game and Brown punched him, and that as he was trying to defend himself, another man hit him, too.

"A verbal altercation on the court led to a physical fight and the victim was punched by another male subject who was later identified as 25-year-old recording artist Chris Brown," police said in a news release.

According to Brown’s publicist, Nicole Perna, the R&B singer was not involved.

"Chris is currently in Las Vegas as he is performing at Drai's on May 5 and receiving a Key to the Strip that day as well," Perna released in a statement. "He has a suite at the hotel that has a basketball court and invited friends to come play. An unruly individual showed up uninvited and was removed from the premises. Chris was not in an altercation with this person."

That individual who was "uninvited" was eventually treated for minor injuries and released from the hospital. Although the publicist denies Brown's involvement, Las Vegas police are looking to talk to him.

According to CNN, Brown can sign a citation for misdemeanor battery or the case can be submitted to the district attorney's office for prosecution.
