Chris Brown at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Nov. 23, 2008.
WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are investigating allegations that Grammy-winning singer Chris Brown assaulted a man in a West Hollywood parking lot.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says deputies responded to a report Sunday night of 6 men fighting.
Witnesses told deputies that the brief fight was over a parking space.
The department says the "altercation allegedly led to Chris Brown punching the victim."
The "victim" wasn't identified but the celebrity website TMZ, which first reported the incident outside a recording studio, says the fight also involved Frank Ocean, a nominee in the upcoming Grammy Awards. He later tweeted that he "got jumped by (Brown) and a couple guys" and suffered a finger cut.
The department says it will contact Brown later.
Brown's attack on singer Rihanna on the eve of the 2009 Grammy awards overshadowed the show. He was injured in a June 2012 brawl with members of hip-hop star Drake's entourage at a New York nightclub.
