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."

I would not even dignify your crude attempts at making an insult. Have a great day! :)

Why does everything that happens to a certain section of our country have to turn out to be a race issue? It gets annoying when ignorant people say things like..."most black people don't want to be here...go back to AFRICA!" I mean, can't you come up with something original.

How often do you actually hear real people go around saying " I don't want to be here because I'm black.." seriously, get a clue. This is a case of if the punishment should fit the crime. I think 95% of people who have a license speed at some point.

We all have moments when our attention is not 100% on the road. In those moments, we too could kill someone. Just because it hasnt happened yet, does not mean that it can't. I do believe that she should pay some penalty, however I she will probably suffer more because she is in the public eye.

Not because she is black. But because she is a celebrity

Well...HELLOOO, off course the bitch tried to brake, why waste tax payer money for some stupid test in London. I mean, even if you want to kill the car infront of you, you will most likely brake just through reflex.
It was an accident...she will already get her ass sued for millions...leave the bitch alone.

I think the racial comments on here are just to get attention from poor loathsome people.

i live in california and have driven the stretch of freeway where this accident happened. i have also witnessed accidents happen and almost happen right there. it is so poorly laid out, i am not at all surprised this happened. the freeway is at a major decline and then all of a sudden the traffic stops with people exiting onto another freeway. if you are not familiar with this freeway and know whats coming your just asking for trouble. i would love to know how many accidents a year happen in that area of the freeway. i dont think she should be prosecuted. it could have and probably has happened to anyone. its just a tragic accident that she will have to live with forever!!!

Does it make you feel good to insult black people from the comfort of hiding behind your computer screen?

She used veritable in her sentence correctly if you want to get technical. Hasn't anyone ever heard of "veritable news sources"?

Brandy was going too fast. But most people here are correct. She isn't a criminal, but involuntary vehicular man slaughter is nothing to be laughed at. She will end up loosing everything she has and maybe everything she ever will get over this. She isn't going to "get away with anything" but she is going to pay heavily for her lead foot.

speeding is not an accident. tailgating is not an accident. not watching the road is not an accident. they are all reckless acts. 5 years minimum, the family of the lady she killed deserve at least that, and all brandy's money too.

If you have read any of the news articles, you would know that she never left the scene of the accident. Racist much?

It's not the freeway's fault KC, Most all freeways in large cities are very intricate and they have their own tricky nuances. That's why people should slow down pay attention and drive with care. She drives that stretch of road all the time is very familiar with it. she should have been driving mindfully, & cautiously, not like some road rage idiot. Your excuses hold no water. Her negligence killed somebody, maybe next time it'll be your mama.
