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.

How awkward would it be for Rihanna's PR flack to word a statement that says something like "Rihanna was assualted by her close friend Chris Brown."? Don't think we'll see it.

The story I'm getting is he told her to go get him a beer and make sure it was open. It wasn't so she paid the price.

Wow, some of you haters really need to back off Rihanna right now. How or why anyone in their right mind, can justify anyone hitting someone else is completely disgusting, dated, and misogynist. There is NEVER an excuse to hit someone else, MATURE GROWN PEOPLE WALK AWAY FROM SITUATIONS THAT LEAD TO VIOLENCE. Chris Brown is a boy who saw his mother being beat during his childhood, obviously this is a LEARNED behavior. Rihanna, and ANY WOMAN OR MAN in an abusive relationship CAN DO SO MUCH BETTER. All people, whether celebrity or not, have the RIGHT not the ENTITLEMENT to be safe, loved, and respected, WITHOUT fear of violence. If this in fact is Rihanna, then may she be strong, and leave that idiot ALONE.
