Brown,19, had issued an apology for the incident on February 15, saying he was ’sorry and saddened’ by the events and that he was seeking the counseling of his pastor, family and friends.

I’m going to kill you’ before putting the singer in a headlock so severe she nearly lost consciousness, according to the report.
