Chris Brown Will Not Face Charges in Alleged Anaheim Club Assault

In June 2013 the famous R&B artist Chris Brown was accused of allegedly assaulting a 24-year-old Anaheim club-goer, Deanna Gines, inside the Orange County nightclub, Heat Ultra Lounge.

Gines alleged that Brown pushed her during a June 22 concert at Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim. The case, which could have resulted in a misdemeanor charge, was referred to the Anaheim city attorney’s office for review.

In July, Gines sued Brown and Royal Entertainment Inc., which owns the nightclub, claiming that she had been battered, assaulted and suffered emotional distress. She claimed Brown shoved her to the ground, injuring her left knee. After the incident, security kicked her out of the club, she claimed.

As of August 27, Anaheim prosecutors have decided not to file charges against singer Chris Brown over allegations that he assaulted a woman at a nightclub near Disneyland in June, according to a city spokeswoman.

As reported by the Orange County Register, the office “declined to file charges in this case based on review of the circumstances and evidence,” city spokeswoman Ruth Ruiz said in a written statement. According to Sgt. Bob Dunn, a factor that motivated the decision to decline to file charges was that two women who were with Gines when the alleged incident occurred failed to contact detectives.

Brown was famously convicted of assaulting on-again, off-again girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. He was sentenced to five years probation for the attack and 1000 hours of community service.
