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.

Lets see WHO did what before we take off running with gossip. The word car accident was being used... and maybe it was... They were out partyinh last night till the weeeeeee hours, maybe the only thing he hit was the patrone! And then drove a whole lotta tipsy and ran into something she got hure Im sure he did too. But because Drunk driving is against the law he pulled a Lindsey Lohan and too off... So ok then we have all the gossip rags running off with the DOMESTIC BATTERY charges and setting Judgment on people with out full info or Knowledge... Broken Jaw in the hospital??? Well I hope the one who is blabbing about that gets found out and is fired.... And BTW you can get a broken jaw from a car accident.... Some of these remarks i've read are so stupid. And If i might just toss a name of one who we all thought would not have a cereer any more... R. Kelley!! I'll wait to see what CB says.. Just like I waited for the other CB ( Christian Bale ) to speak. And remember "Judge not unless you want to be judged by the standards you are judging" Thing happen, people get into trouble, mistakes are made, and the healing does happen. I should hope C.B. didn't physically hit Rihanna... I hope I am right and it is due to being too drunk to drive.... Call a cab next time. Let Them both alone and lets all remember would we want a bunch of strangers spectulating on the private affaires the go on in our lives... Oh BTW... a threat to take a knife and CUT some one is a threat of Violence to do permonent bodily harm to another... You can be arrested for that and I know this for a fact because I was a victom of such a threat... and the police said anyone who threatrons assult against another and says just how they are going to do it and with what... Can be arrested... Watch what you say , even E-Mails can be traced...

#30 you are funny! Domestic violence is not a race issue, it happens in every race. No person male or female should be victimized (people forget men can be victims too)...it happens in both straight and gay relationships. If it is not working end the relationship... I suspect the victim will change her story in the coming days, it will end up being a misunderstanding or somehow the police got her statement wrong. She will go back to the abuser, and it will happen agian, and again it will be a misunderstanding. Its a cycle of violence it happens everyday in every part of the country. (I am not speaking of the parties involved here just about how the victim usually responds-- I've worked in the field of domestic violence. Those who work in the field get burnt out because you see the same victim/abuser repeatedly. No one ever learns and no one ever changes.)

Number 69 does need to grow up and get a life...I would venture to guess that everything you do that goes wrong in your life is "sombody else's fault"...big character flaw gone viral here...

#84 is so right....I am white and I am here to tell you that there is just as much violence if not MORE, in our ethnic group. Think about it...think about what we have done to our equals in the past. Stupid, weak, and morally wrong.

Domestic violence is rainbow colored.

just maybe it was a car accident and the reason he left the scene is because he could not stay for one reason or another, if the police are involved there is/will be a police report soon.
Let's wait and see before rumors fly and reputations are destroyed with rumor upon rumor.
