Court Goes After Reporter in Rihanna Case

7/2/2009 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BrownLegal documents have been filed asking a judge to hold a reporter in the Chris Brown case in contempt of court.

According to docs filed with the court, Russell Alan Wetanson runs a website that posted video of interviews in the hallway outside the courtroom where Chris Brown pled guilty to felony assault -- court rules prohibit such taping.

Wetanson, who is a lawyer, was notified by the public information officer of the court of the violation and the videos were removed from his website.

But now a contempt hearing could be set, which raises the possibility that Wetanson could be sent to the pokey.

It's a shame, his perpetual violence towards young women will send countless innocents to jail. Mr. Brown is an animal and should be locked up like one or put to sleep before another innocent young woman is critically injured or killed.

So, let me get this straight... a reporter may end up going to jail, but the violent abuser didn't! Unreal!
