Chris Brown & Rihanna

Police Report

Shocking Blow-By-Blow

3/5/2009 1:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Shocking new evidence about what happened in the car the night Chris Brown allegedly beat Rihanna.

Police Report
TMZ has obtained LAPD detectives notes from a search warrant in the case. According to the notes, Rihanna read a three-page text message on Brown's phone from a woman. An argument ensued and Brown allegedly tried forcing Rihanna out of the car but couldn't because she was wearing her seat belt. 

Brown then allegedly shoved Rihanna's head against the passenger window. When Rihanna turned to face him, Brown punched her, then continued punching her while driving, according to the detective's notes.

Blood spattered all over Rihanna's clothing and in the interior of the car. Her mouth was filled with blood.

Brown allegedly told Rihanna, "I'm going to beat the **** out of you when we get home. You wait and see."

Rihanna called her assistant and left a message saying, "I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there."

Brown then replied, "You just did the stupidest thing ever. I'm going to kill you."

According to the report, Brown continued to punch Rihanna, bit her on her ear, her fingers and put her in a headlock -- she almost lost consciousness.

Wow! He needs to go to jail. He beat her over her entire body, bit her, and tried to choke her! He needs more than "anger management". She's like every other stupid girl who takes their abuser back bc they were "sorry" and they "love you" Puhlease! He's going to love her straight to the morgue.

I heard the real reason that he beat her up was because she gave him aids??

This is terrible. It's hard to imagine somebody doing that to another person.
i used to love chris brown and his music, but now whenever i hear one of his songs on the radio or if it comes up on my iPod when i shuffle it, i just turn it off.
i hope rihanna makes the right decision and leaves him for good.

I am just so tired of how the media is painting Chris Brown as an abuser as if this happened so many times before. Do you have proof of that? Just because she said that to the police does not mean that it is necessarily true. She was just reading a text message (why was she snooping anyway, you get what you are looking for) from one of his former interests, and they had an argument and he hit her back (yes i did say back). She was upset and yes when you are 20 and your boyfriend has cheated on you,and you just had a fight, emotions are high, you are seeking revenge she could have very well fabricated the story a little. I DO NOT condone a man hitting on a women to use her as his personal punching bag. At the same time I DO NOT condone a woman using a man as hers either. Yes we have been taught that since we were little that a man should not touch a woman, but these young women need to know too that you keep your hands to yourself. Yes a man may walk away or allow you to hit him without hitting you back but at some point you should expect that one day he is going to snap and hit you back. From other stories particuarly to one in People magazine, those close to them have said their fights start from jealousy and that Rihanna doesnt like women around Chris, she is also obsessed with the boy and according to them it was a bit much for him. She should have known when she 'feel in love' with Chris that women wanting to hang around comes with the territory..so the fact that she allowed a relationship to evolve then she was willing to accept or so she thought. He had to deal with rumors about her and others as well. Chris is a male and males do things like that. He is 19 and too young for the relationship they thought they were mature enough to handle. I wish everyone would lay off the boy a bit and put some of the responsibility on her as well. Chris was wrong for hitting her like he did, i will have to admit that i was really disturbed after reading the police notes to the point that I couldnt work. But I am willing to bet that there is more to his story because we have only heard her side. I am willing to bet she was attacking him while he was driving. Also I would have to ask Rihanna a question, why didnt you get out the car when he 'tried to push you out' It would have been apparent the argument had gone too far then. She had her phone, all these people she was calling while they were driving could have picked her up. If this isnt the first time like the media is trying so hard to make us believe then I would think as a battered scared women you would know when the conversation has reached that point and at that point would be the time to shut up or get away. "if" that wasnt the first time. I am just not willing to throw Chris under the bus like everyone else because I wasnt there and I know it is 2 sides to every story regardless of what a photo shows or what some notes says a person said. The fact that she wants to be with him so bad may be because she is sorry for her part in the altercation and knows this has gone too far. Dont give me the mess about that is typical of battered women to go back and feel like they cannot leave. One because Chris and Rihanna are not married and have no ties to each other what so ever. She is RIHANNA she does not depend on Chris for anything that has to do with her well being she has her own. So in this situation I dont buy that one. Yes in cases where a child has grown up witnessing domestic violence they tend to do the same when they are older. But you know there are cases where because people have grown up in the environment they refuse it and break the cycle and lets not forget this was not his biological father it was his step dad. How come Chris couldnt be one that had broken the cycle and this was an isolated event? Everybody knows so much but tell it all, give examples of several cases not just one sided ones. If I was Chris' mom i would advise him to stay away from Rihanna. Its apparent they both are immature and have anger problems so they BOTH need help not just Chris. Maybe try again later when they have matured. The media is something else I tell you. Allow these people to deal with their issues by themselves and stop putting every little detail out there. That is their business. All those judging, how would you like it if someone put your mess out there for everyone to judge you on? Stop throwing stones when you likely live in a glass house yourself. And stop saying what you would or wouldnt do in this situation because you dont know what you would do until faced with it. This is a case of two young people trying to play grown, he cheats and she wants him to be faithful, she tries to control him but cant, normally she argues about it out of jealousy, hits and this particular time she was stunned when he hit her back and she was left wondering 'what happened?' Typical Yvette and Jody from Baby Boy when she confronted in the apartment

I think Rhianna deserves what she gets, you put yourself in a mans shoes you better be able to wear them!!!!!!!! You dont hit a man, and think he's going to stand there and take a beaten. Why is it okay for her to hit him? This is crap! Dont put your hands on, if you dont want hands put on you..................

wow. alot of you people are extremely uneducated and ignorant. if you knew anything about domestic violence and the effects its has on the mind and the hold it can get you in, then you wouldnt be calling her a dumb bitch. put your mom or sister or someone close to you in her position, then call them a dumb bitch...im sure you wouldnt. you dont know her, you dont know her life and just because you read some stupid gossip website instead of gettng actual education on important issues that acutally matter, doesnt mean you know the whole situation of what she went through or has been going through before this story came to light, so stop calling her some dumb bitch like any of you know what you are talking about. also, alot of you need to learn how to spell. work on those two things, maybe? good luck!

Y does it seem like something is being left out.... Interesting!! Anywhoo get over it, where im from girls get be up everyday. Abuse in relationships is not rare anymore people open your eyes. The girl always goes back for more jus like Ri Ri so we can all stop feeling sorry for her she has made her choice. She jus needs to keep some pepper spray and a knife in her purse at all times

The Truth and Nothing But the truth    

This no excuse for the beating Chris gave to Rihanna. I have seen women slap the S**t out of men for less and then get upset if the man hits back. What every person should have been taught at an early age if you hit you may get hit back. Always try to walk away and get away from the situation. She was upset about the text and start hitting him and there is only so much a person can take male or female. What Chris should have done was park the car and get out and if Rihanna followed go to a public place and if she performed there call the cops. Rihanna is said he has beaten her before, why keep going back if this is a common problem. If she loves him that much go with him to get help even if you sit in the waiting room.

The Truth and Nothing But the truth    

Rihanna never asked to be a role model. People need to start haveing their children look up to them and family memebers. We are all human. If she goes back she is following her heart not yours. Sit your daughters down and say yes Rihanna is a hgreat singer but it is not okay for hewr to go back to Chris if that is the way you feel. Let the chikdren know that it is not okay to hit anyone because you get mad and to not let anyone hit on you. If that is pracatice at home the children should grow up okay. Remember what Charles Barkley said I am not a role model. I don't think she presented herself as one. You put a person higher than everyone else and get mad with they have real life issue..SAD

OK,I'VE SAT BACK AND READ THESE COMMENTS ABOUT RI-RI BEING STUPID! I'M SADDEN BY THIS .WHY BECAUSE I WAS IN A SITUATION LIKE THIS AND CAME OUT OF IT. IT HURTS WHEN PEOPLE CALL YOU NAMES WHEN THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON WITH HER. YES,SHE DOES HAVE LOW SELF ESTEEM ISSUES,YES HE DOES NOT LOVE HER ! BUT SHE NEEDS TO REALIZE THIS FOR HERSELF & UNTIL THEN SHE WILL CONTINUE TO GO BACK.HOPEFULLY SHE WILL MAKE IT OUT & GET SOME HELP ,TO FIND OUT WHY SHE STAYED .AS LONG AS SHE IS HUMAN ,SHE WILL MAKE MISTAKES-JUST LIKE US ALL.BUT SHE SHOULD NOT BE PLACED ON THIS HIGHER PLAIN LIKE "SHE'S A ROLE MODEL" .THAT'S WHAT WRONG WITH THE WORLD TODAY ,EVERYONE IS LOOKING AT OTHER PEOPLE THAT THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT TO THEIR KIDS ROLE MODEL OR THEIR OWN ROLE MODEL.......INSTILL MORALES & VALUES & COMMON SENSE .BUILD YOUR KIDS UP ,BY EXAMPLE OF YOU & THE COMPANY THAT YOU KEEP .THEN MAYBE ,JUST MAYBE YOU CAN CURVE WHO YOUR KIDS HAVE AS ROLE MODELS.TEACH THEM THAT WE ARE HUMANS WE MAKE MISTAKE ,BUT WHAT DO WE DO THERE AFTER IS THE ISSUE! AND SOMETIME IS TAKES TIME TO GET TO THE POINT WHERE WE REDEEM OURSELF.

WE SHOULD REACH OUT ,NOT THROW HER AWAY --------- SHE IS NOT PERFECT & SHE NEVER CLAIMED TO BE EITHER !

I'LL ALWAYS BE A FAN AS LONG AS SHE DO HER JOB( WHICH IS SING ,NOT BE AN EXAMPLE -ROLE MODEL FOR PEOPLE)

like i said before this is HER VERSION of what happened that night, i'm not saying nothing happened to her because it obvious by the pics of her something did, but i think she made it out to be more than what it was cause if he had hit her as many times as she said he did she would have been looking alot worse!!!! She was probably just so mad at him that night and wanted to get back at him so lied, about what REALLY happened i read that she was hitting ON HIM FIRST and he was trying to stop her CAUSE HE WAS DRIVING THE CAR!!!!! YES HE DID GET CARRIED AWAY BUT AS CITIZENS WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO DEFEND OURSELVES!!!! (and i'm not a chris or rihanna fan!!!)
