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.

At least something good came from this incident. We were treated to a fabulous performance by Al Green, Justin and B2M. CB could not deliver what they did.

The woman suffered physical "bruises"? Bruises do not show up for a few days after being injured. Also, there was no accident. They both got out of the car and took their fight outside. Whatever happened, CB could not attend and perform, so instead we had a welcome wonderful performance by Al Green, Justin and B2M. Some horrible incidents do have good endings.

Did anyone notice that JayZ was there at the Grammys and Beyonce was no where in sight? Rihanna and Jay have been linked before romantically. Don't know how much of it is true. What could have gotten CB so mad that he hits his girl??? Sounds like a ego trip to me. Not sure if any of this is linked together, but i'm just saying.

Any man that hits a woman, is no man at all, they are spineless jelly
fish that in reality have homosexual tendencies and an underlying
hatred for women, There are no racial boundaries on
this matter it happens with all races, (black, white, brown...it
doesn't matter,...These spineless jelly fish, are 91.3%
undercover homosexual's who have had a homosexual encounter in the
past, present or even thinking of having one in the near
future....Given an encounter with a real "man"...they would leave
skid marks in they're boxer's or briefs

To the dumb azz that say he can beat them, someone beating on you isnt a sign of LOVE. So stop trying to sugar coat it. No man should beat on a woman, and no woman should beat on a man. I wouldnt think he would do this after seeing what happenned to his mom, but domestic violence is a learned behavior. For all the racism that is being display azzholes get a life. Stop call Rihanna trash where you come from dont make you, also where she is from is beatiful learn about and go see places before you talk about it. THis is so SAD

The thang is he watched his step-father bust up his mom and he tripped on that. Why would this fool go off and beat on some woman ? Stooopid is as stuoopid does. Jayz is gonna bust you up and make sure you NEVAH get a gig. I hope Rhihana won't be stoopid and take his sorry no good self back. Once a beater always a beater. he ain't gonna change baby girl. He'll be beatn on you tomorrow for embarassing him. Look at old Whitney.. Life as a crackhead. She don't look so good either. Crack is whack!
