Chris Brown Accused of Assaulting Woman in Nightclub

Rapper Chris Brown may have new legal troubles ahead of him.

Brown, who reached a plea deal in an assault case involving pop star girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, is now being accused of knocking down a 24-year-old woman at a Calif. nightclub so roughly she will need surgery.

Deanna Gines tells TMZ … she was in the VIP section with Chris at Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim — where he had just performed.  When the bar was about to close, she claims Chris shoved her to the ground. Deanna tells us, the shove was deliberate and she fell hard on her knees. 

Deanna tells us she filed a police report, and a rep for the Anaheim PD says a female did indeed file a report for assault inside the club, but the rep won’t disclose the name. Cops are investigating.

The singer’s representative claims no knowledge of the incident.
