A police spokesman said he had no details on the arrest Wednesday in Brooklyn, which is not Brown’s first brush with the law.
Brown pleaded guilty in 2008 to menacing a neighbor with her cell phone. The rapper and neighbor Arlene Raymond got into a fight in July 2007 over Brown blasting her car stereo outside their building.
The 30-year-old entertainer also spent seven months in jail for a Manhattan case involving a fight with manicurists in a nail salon.
Brown’s real name is Inga Marchand.
A lawyer for Brown did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
