The Fortune creator's lawyer has reportedly presented the NYPD with "physical evidence" to show that Drake and Mill were the aggressors in the fight at W.I.P. nightclub, which left Brown's security guard Big Pat and innocent clubgoers with serious injuries.
TMZ reports that Brown is currently considered "a witness and a victim." Drake, whose rep released a statement denying his involvement in the brawl, is cooperating with authorities. Meek Mill's part in the fight is not clear at this time.
Sources say the artists were partying Wednesday night at the same venue. Brown apparently sent Drake, who was in attendance with Meek Mill, a bottle of alcohol, which the rappers denied.
The "Take Care" performer then apparently instigated the brawl by giving the middle finger to one of Brown's bodyguards. He shouted, "I'm about to go whoop that ass!" and "You be on that ho shitt on Twitter n----," which was in reference to Rihanna.
Other sources say someone in Brown's camp instigated the incident.
