The report was included in a prosecution motion seeking to have Brown’s probation revoked over numerous discrepancies and lax supervision of his community service sentence for the 2009 beating of Rihanna.
The report says Brown punched Ocean after the pair argued over a parking space at a West Hollywood studio on Jan. 27. Ocean told police that at one point, Brown shouted he and his entourage could “bust” Ocean, which prosecutors wrote is a street slang term for shooting someone.
Ocean, who has said his first love was a man, also told investigators that he may have heard someone shout a gay slur during the confrontation.

There is no credible evidence that Chris Brown completed the community service he was required to do in the beating of Rihanna, and he should be forced to repeat six months of manual labor in Los Angeles, prosecutors told a judge Tuesday.
A motion by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office says the records submitted to prove Brown finished the community labor sentenced by Virginia authorities contain numerous discrepancies and that the R&B singer was essentially unsupervised.
The motion states Brown could face additional misdemeanor penalties because of the community service records. Prosecutors are recommending that his probation be revoked at a hearing on Wednesday.
Investigators from Los Angeles traveled to Virginia to try to verify that Brown had worked all the hours as reported by the Richmond Police Department, but they were unable to confirm it, the motion said.
“This inquiry provided no credible, competent or verifiable evidence that defendant Brown performed his community labor as presented to this court,” Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray wrote.
The records submitted by Richmond Police Chief Bryan Norwood are “at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.”
Richmond Police spokesman Gene Lepley declined to discuss the allegations.
“We believe it would inappropriate to comment on a matter that’s before the court,” Lepley said. A phone and email message for Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos was not immediately returned.
Brown was allowed to perform his community labor in his home state of Virginia. Richmond police submitted paperwork last year indicating Brown had completed his sentence, but the logs showed the singer performing double shifts in the city and at a day care center where his mother once worked.
