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.

E! just said neither Rihanna or Chris Brown will be at the Grammys tonight...so either Chris did hit her and she's the victim or Rihanna's not going to be by Chris' side....no one got arrested yet though...

My husband is a cop and he said that he heard that someone said that they heard that someone's husband who is a cop has a cousin who is a cop who heard from his neighbor that he read on TMZ that someone said that Chris Brown was on the run.

No excuse for hitting a woman EVER. Walk away- be a man. I hope she presses charges and makes it stick. She should ask Tina Turner for advice on how to leave the bum.
