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.

If it is Rihanna, which we all seem to be agreeing upon, let that trashy performer Chris burn in hell. NEVER assault a woman in ANY way! BURN IN HELL CHRIS!

#34: I agree. It's very sad. And then to see some of the comments on here making jokes about it? Just as sad.

Domestic abuse isn't funny. If it happened to you, I bet you wouldn't be laughing.

No recent police reports of any MVAs with injuries. Sounds like the "car accident" was more like an "accident in the car." If the female involved was not Rihanna, Rihanna's management would have issued a statement by now. Something's definitely up.

let me get this right chris brown could had possibly abused rihanna physically and you ppl are blaming her? are u serious? calling her a witch and saying she drove him to it wow u ppl are crazy idc how crazy or possessive she is he has no right to put his hands on rihanna or any female at that and if this is true i hope he goes to jail and gets punish. I wonder if you guys will feel the same way if a basketball or football player put his hands on his wife
