The Miami Herald newspaper reported that Ms Brown, real name Inga Marchand, was detained at a beauty shop after a disturbance on Thursday.
In October, she was sentenced to three years probation after assaulting two nail salon workers in New York.
Ms Brown kicked and punched the staff during a dispute over payment in 2004.
She was also ordered to attend anger management classes and instructed to stay away from the manicurists involved for five years.
Ms Brown was warned by a judge in December that she faced prison if she violated her probation terms.
She is best known for her album Chyna Doll, which was a US number one in 1999.
A friend of rap mogul Jay-Z, she signed to his Roc-A-Fella record label in 2004.
Her fourth album, titled Black Roses, is due for release later this year.
