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.

Due to the technicality, the case should be thrown out of court. Give Mr. Brown probation and 300 hours of community service.

That is the most pathetic thing I have heard yet- they would consider putting a guy in jail for taping where he should not have but will let a woman-beating douchebag like Chris Brown walk? That is all kinds of crazy.
