Chris Brown is denying that he deliberately shoved a woman to the floor at a nightclub.

Deanna Gines told gossip site TMZ she was in the VIP section with Brown at Heat Ultra Lounge Saturday night in Anaheim. When the bar was about to close, she claims the singer shoved her to the ground. Gines claims the shove was deliberate and that it resulted in torn knee ligaments that might require surgery.

The 24-year-old Gines says she filed a police report, and a rep for the Anaheim Police confirmed to TMZ that a woman did indeed file a report for assault inside the club, but they would not disclose her name.

Gines said she was waiting on a second opinion to see if she'll need surgery.
