Chris Brown Pleads Not Guilty To Alleged Florida Photographer Attack

Chris Brown denies any wrongdoing.

Last week, Chris Breezy was performing in Florida for his Heartbreak On A Full Moon tour and when he walked off stage police were there ready to handcuff him and take him in. Chris was arrested for an outstanding warrant that was linked to an alleged attack on a photographer from the previous year.

Apparently, Bennie Vines was hired by a club to take photos of Chris who was hosting an event. While taking pictures, Chris punched him in the face but got away before cops showed up. The victim denied medical treatment but went forward with a case against Chris since suffering a split lip. The Blast now reports that Chris pleaded not guilty to the assault. The singer was not in court to preach his stance but the plea was delivered by his attorney who also asked the court to set a date for a “disposition/pre-trial conference.”

Chris apparently paid $2,000 to get out of jail and continue his tour and even hit up Instagram to let his fans know he’s good. “What’s NEW🙄????? Show tomorrow!!!! ❤.”

Chris is set to hit up Virginia Beach tomorrow followed by, New Jersey, Brooklyn and many more for the handful of dates left on the road.

Parkland Students Are Not Happy About Their Clear Backpacks

The students of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School are not impressed by their school’s new safety measure. Six weeks after a gunman killed 17 people at the Parkland, Florida, school, students were given clear backpacks they are required to wear in order to prevent anyone from bringing weapons onto campus.

Robert Runcie, the superintendent of Broward County Public Schools, announced the new policy last month, after the shooter’s brother was caught trespassing on campus, and two students were charged with carrying knives onto school grounds. Runcie also said students would be issued ID badges they must wear at all time while at school, and that the district is considering installing metal detectors.

Students were immediately critical of the decision, with one senior, Kyra Parrow, tweeting, “s/o to America for making my school seem like jail now because legislators don’t have common sense gun reform on their agendas.” Reactions weren’t any warmer when the backpacks were handed out on Monday after students returned from spring break.

Some students used the clear plastic backpacks to broadcast their opinions on the new requirement.

Since the shooting, Stoneman Douglas students have been at the forefront of a renewed push for stricter gun-control legislation. The new bags were issued just over a week after millions of people around the world joined Parkland students for the March for Our Lives protest for gun control.

“We’re going to make sure the best people get in our elections to run not as politicians, but as Americans. Because this,” Parkland survivor David Hogg said at the march in Washington D.C., pointing at the U.S. Capitol, “This is not cutting it.”
