Chris Brown was involved in incidents "related to domestic violence" twice before he was busted this year, according to a probation officer's report filed Tuesday for the singer's sentencing and obtained by the Los Angeles Times.
The first offense cited occurred in Europe about three months before his arrest. Per the report, Chris Brown and Rihanna were engaged in a "verbal dispute" when she slapped him and he responded by shoving the star into a wall.

Brown got out of the vehicle and, enraged, smashed the driver and passenger-side windows. The incident went unreported at the time.
