Drake is expected to be charged with reckless endangerment, sources said, after a witness told cops the hip-hopper hurled the projectile during the 4 a.m. mayhem Thursday at the SoHo hotspot W.i.P.
The witness didn’t believe Drake hit anyone with the bottle.
If Drake doesn’t agree to surrender by early next week, cops may arrest him during tonight’s concert at Jones Beach, the sources said.
The 25-year-old hip-hop star, who briefly dated Rihanna, drove Brown into a rage when his table sent over a note that read: “I am f–king the love of your life.”
Brown, Rihanna’s ex, had just bought Drake a pricey bottle of Champagne.
Drake’s camp yesterday said the fight was instigated by a member of Brown’s crew who made offensive comments toward their entourage, which included rapper Meek Mill.
A source said Brown’s posse that night may have included members of the Crips street gang, which would violate the terms of his probation set after his 2009 attack on Rihanna.
“Drake’s lawyers and the police are looking into whether Chris Brown was hanging out with known gang members,” the source said.
But an attorney for Brown said Drake started the brawl.
“I have turned over evidence that it was Drake who instigated this. The evidence makes it clear that Chris is the victim in all of this,” said Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos.
“I believe the police are building a case against Drake and his thugs,” Geragos added. “Clearly, Drake was the instigator, and there is evidence he threw glassware.”
Drake does kinda look like boxer Winky Wright, maybe he’s trying to live out his child hood sorta boxing fantasy. We can’t really say boxing since he was doing more “Throwing bottles” instead of punches but ya’ll get the idea.
We hope this little beef ends soon before someone else really gets hurt. In the words of our Hyundai homie Rodney King “Can’t we all just get along?”
