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.

Isn't it interesting that anytime anyone attempts to blog anything regarding people in healthcare not blabbing people's personal information TMZ won't post it????? Freedom of speech people.....we don't live in North Korea...

WOW, I made it on this time...let's go for another attempt here...

Healthcare personnel are LEGALLY obligated NOT to divulge people's personal info to the public, period. The people who are in charge of anyone's healthcare in this scenario-and I'M NOT SAYING ANYONE is in the hospital, because we really don't know-don't derserve to wear the uniform, and you know who you are. If you are involved in taking care of anyone in this secanrio within a medical facility you need to shut the hell up. Bet THIS one doesn't get posted...

Um, WritingDivas?

You write very badly. Your nouns and verbs don't even agree. Don't get me started on the rest of it.

Sorry.

So felony assault is ok for "island trash"?You are the worthless trash in the gutter and you need to stay there with your nasty,jealous thoughts.
Rihanna the"islander "has been looking for a marrow donor for an American child whilst working hard at her stellar career.She has always been decent and refined in her conduct unlike many of your American-bred celebrities.She does not come from a culture where entertainers are idolized for calling women "bitches" and "hos".Most of all,she is a human being-a daughter,a sister,a grand-daughter,a niece and a friend of someone.
We don't know the facts but if she is the woman,may God strengthen her and heal her.It is sad to see both these young people deprived of their joy tonight by ignorant,brutal behavior.Chris Brown has disgraced himself and his fans if this is true. This is a criminal act with hard consequences and there is nothing funny about it.People who want to gloat should take a good look at crime scenes of domestic violence and speak to children who watched their mothers killed by their fathers.

If Chris is convicted of assaulting Rihanna, I will NEVER buy another song or video of his again - EVER. If he did this, he is a beast and a sorry excuse for a human being. I am disgusted and appalled.

Its even on CNN... ok uhm im shocked..but if he is guilty whether it be Rihanna or any woman he should be charged,,,and WOW...the ignorance and racism on this site is unreal. I took a chance on taking a peek too see if there is any info and i came to the realization that ignorance is rampid on here. Also to the people who say she (whoever it is) deserves it your sick and twisted and need HELP ASAP...its ppl like you that put human rights back many years...GET HELP or try self punishment. I hope Rihanna is ok.
