Assault allegation

Chris Brown being investigated for allegedly hitting woman in head - reports

The pop star is the suspect in a battery report made by the LAPD, a spokesperson for the department told TMZ and Us Weekly.

Brown infamously beat his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, but went on to have several run-ins with the law for violence against women and men over the years since.

In the latest incident, the woman reportedly claimed she got into an argument at Brown's home before he struck her.

One of the reports says the "slap" made the woman's weave fall off, but she was otherwise uninjured.

Melbourne Rebels star Amanaki Mafi arrested in New Zealand

Loose forward Mafi will appear in Dunedin District Court on Monday, charged with injuring with intent to injure in an incident in South Dunedin.    

It's a dismal postscript to the Rebels' bold, but unsuccessful attempt to secure a Super Rugby finals berth, when they lost 43-37 to the Highlanders on Saturday.    

While police didn't name Mafi, Rugby Australia had earlier confirmed the Tongan-born Japanese international loose forward was being held in police custody.
