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.

Well. Maybe this will save that life of his....slow him down some. He's a nice kid. But, I think he might like puzzy too much!

Besides, that damn girlfriend of his..Rihanna...is driving him NUTS with her insecurity and possessiveness. He's too young to be tied down Rihanna!!!!!! The sun does not rise and shine in YOUR poontang!

I bet he assaulted Jordin Sparks. She said she is prettier than him, and he got pissed and decided she needed "No Air".

rihanna and chris brown have pulled out of the grammys and are being replaced by boyz II men and al green. Their rehearsals on friday were amazing but they pulled out this morning. Rihanna is currently at cedars sinai.

Poor fellow. He got mixed up with a Third World Witch. Wow. She drove him to the edge with her controlling azz! He shoulda stuck to the fine American-bred girls instead of that Islander trash.

My daddy always said...'When you play in trash, it'll get in your eyes'. Hang in there Chris. You're the only one in that relationship with talent! Don't let her take you down to her level....TRASH.

I am from Barbados and I support Rihanna one hundred percent. It's time for her to get with someone a little more classier, and as for fathertime, stop spreading your ignorance far and wide, american girls are no better than any other girls.
