Prosecutors Split in Brandy Case

8/6/2007 2:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

BrandyLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ that officials in the Los Angeles City Attorney's office are split over whether to prosecute Brandy for a fatal car accident last December.

Brandy's Range Rover rear-ended a car, triggering a multi-car accident, which resulted in the death of a 38-year-old woman. One source says there was a "conflict" in the City Attorney's office over whether Brandy should be prosecuted at all. The charge on the table, we're told, is misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.

We're told prosecutors are waiting on technical data that will measure the speed of Brandy's vehicle on impact. The data will help prosecutors determine if the singer tried to brake before impact. The tests are being conducted by a London based firm.

When the results are returned, the City Attorney will make a decision. One source says, "At this point it could go either way."

Brandy wasn't on drugs or alcohol, and it was an accident. It could have happened to any one of you people.

Your absolutely correct #11. She will get off because she is black. And you will not hear one word from the loud mouth blacks that are always mouthing off when a white does something. I've said it before and I'll say it again....blacks are the worst biggots on earth and are the ones who are always whinning about the way they are treated.

Darla, "what about driving at a "safe speed?" She killed someone. Don't you get it? Someone is dead cause she was either driving too fast, on a cell phone or just not paying attention to traffic. People driving those big SUV's have an obligation to be cautious.

My sister accidentally hit an elderly lady about 10 years ago when she ran out in front of her vehicle. My sister killed her, and it was deemed an accident. Brandy didn't intentionally hit the back of the car to hurt that poor woman. Anyway, the victim's family is already taking a pretty penny from Brandy in court. Nothing will bring that woman back, but Brandy has suffered enough.

Brandy is SOOOOOOOO ugly!

She has horse teeth, needs some serious oil control cleanser, an ugly smashed camel nose, and her eyes are too far apart.

She was on her freakin cell phone and not paying attention when she killed the person in the car. I guess according to Hollywood standards it was a minor accident...screw the person who died from her negligence. Brandi is so sweet....let's forget about it. If her victim was related to me, I would press for manslaugher and own her house, bank account and anything else I could get my hands on.

Shamefully, if you look at Hollywood standards, probably no one will account for the death and Brandi will continue to live the good life while her victim is 6ft. under.

Although it is sad, it was an accident. The same things happen everyday around the world. If she didn't have deep pockets this wouldn't be an issue.

Who doesn't speed? Take her license away, but she doesn't deserve any jail time. Lane Garrison is the one who should be in jail for driving under the influence.
