*Before a judge ordered him to anger management, Chris Brown allegedly claimed he was a member of the Bloods gang and beat up a man playing against him in a pick-up basketball game at a 24-Hour Fitness.

And now that man is suing the singer.

TMZ reports that Malcolm Ausbon filed a lawsuit claiming he was playing hoops last July against Brown when he called a foul on the entertainer, which Brown vehemently denied.

Brown allegedly threatened the man saying he would kick his ass. Ausbon claims Brown then bragged that he was a member of the Bloods.

Ausbon opted to back away, but Brown was on a tear. He allegedly rushed Ausbon with three members of his security team, who screamed, “If you f*** with Chris, you f*** with us.”

The lawsuit claims the four men then began to “strike, punch, kick, pull and stomp Ausbon’s head and body.”

He says he ended up in the emergency room with injuries to his face, head, neck, back, legs and ribs. He also says he’s suffering from embarrassment, fear, anxiety and post traumatic stress disorder.

Ausbon is suing Brown and 24-Hour Fitness, as well as the security team for unspecified damages.

A source close to Brown acknowledges an “incident” on the court but says there were no punches thrown.
