Chris Brown Investigated

For Alleged Assault

2/8/2009 7:51 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Alleged AssaultLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ Chris Brown is being investigated by the LAPD in an alleged assault on a female.

According to police, Brown and a woman whom cops refuse to identify were arguing inside a vehicle around 12:30 this morning when suddenly things allegedly turned violent.

Cops say they received a 911 call, and when they arrived they noticed the woman had visible injuries. We're told she then identified Brown as her attacker. Cops say Brown had left the scene by the time police arrived.

Cops say they are looking to speak with Brown and may arrest him when they find him.

When we called reps for Brown's girlfriend, Rihanna, for a statement, her people told us, "Rihanna is well. Thank you for your concern and support."

UPDATE
: Grammy officials have just announced that Rihanna will neither perform on the show tonight -- as scheduled -- nor walk the red carpet for the event. The same announcement has been made about Chris.

Suspicious of Chris' atttitude    

does anyone remember the time when Chris was punked and he was at a restaurant with his mom. he was pretty angry. he came off as a quick temper to me. he composed himself but not as well as i though he would. it seemed like if they had gone any longer with the joke he would have started hittin on someone.

It is sad if in fact that he has abused Rhiana. They had differences in Barbados and he smashed up her car in a violent manner. She should not be with him now. I cannot understand why any woman would go back for more licks, Surely enough is enough. H e is rich and very arrogant. His attitude stinks. When one has so much money they lose all sence of reasoning. They has no respect for decency. I would like him to leave Rhiana alone. He should avoid all women. Not one of them deserve to be abused by hil. H e is a stupid little ass.

He beat up Rihanna. Everyone saying bad things about her is so wrong. There is no excuse for domestic violence

The victim isRihanna, she was beat up BAD!! poor girl, A man should take out anger in a constructive way, not by beating somebody weaker than you. Karma is catching up to him. Trust me

Aww come on....why are so many of us assuming that it was her fault? and even if it was, who in the heck gives any man the right to hit any woman? No, i'm not looking for points with the girls, i just do not think that it is right, and anyway, why are you dissing two black people like that? this already messes up what use to be two perfect looking lives and careers, no need to add to it.

This just goes to show that people in the lime light are all human with the same demons that we all have or have been through. I hope he can get some help with this before it gets worse. I know about the anger type issues. As for Rhianna or "the female" I know that love forgives but make sure that there is some sort of fixing the problem before you get in too deep. Unfortunately loved ones are the ones that get all the bruises. Good luck!

Chris Brown tried to make Rihanna breathe with no air. Fight started when neighbors heard a woman yell "Shut up and Drive!"

This trial will be the next Trial of the Century like O.J. Simpson's Trial of the Century of the 1990's. Chris Browns incident will be the next Trial of the Century.
