Chris Brown is having a tough week…he was accused of assaulting a girl at club which turned out to be false and then he was charged with a hit-and-run even though there is photographic evidence that he never left the scene after the fender bender. that happened a few weeks ago. The female driver claims Chris gave her bogus info but he says he gave her all the correct info!
Chris Brown has been charged with criminal hit-and-run … TMZ has learned.
We’ve learned the L.A. City Attorney has filed 2 criminal charges against Brown, in connection with a minor accident last month where Chris rear-ended a Mercedes and allegedly refused to fork over his driver’s license number and gave bogus insurance info and then left the scene.
The City Attorney has charged Chris with hit-and-run — for leaving the scene without exchanging proper information. He’s also been charged with the crime of driving without a valid license. The crimes are punishable by a maximum of 6 months in jail for each offense.
We’ve also learned the City Attorney will refer the matter to the L.A. County D.A. for a possible probation violation in the Rihanna beating case. Worst case scenario — if the judge in that case concludes Chris broke the law and thereby violated his probation, he could be sentenced to prison for 4 years.
Update: Chris just tweeted in response to the charges, writing, “It’s not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars). This is really ridiculous.” He also just changed his profile picture to the girl’s car he allegedly hit.
Chris took to Twitter to vent his frustration with the situation, “It’s not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars).This is really ridiculous. I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info. She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene. She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures. @tmz is the devil.. Just yesterday you guys were accusing me of assaulting someone( which was false) and now today it’s some more bs. My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism! My profile pic is the pic I took of the persons car after “the hit and run”. NO damage. Just a dirty car.once again, I gotta clear my name. I work my ass off to provide for my entire family. I’ve made mistakes in the past and have worked hard to be a better person. 19-24 years of age. I don’t have all the answers and you can’t show me a person that age who has it figured out.We live and grow.Let me live
