Rihanna Attack -- The Official Blow-by-Blow

8/25/2009 8:32 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The court has released the officer's report from the night Chris Brown beat up Rihanna -- describing the entire incident in graphic detail.

According to the report, cops responded to a "screaming woman" -- and when they arrived, they noticed a "very upset and crying" Rihanna seated in the driver's seat of a parked vehicle.

Rihanna Attack

Rihanna told the officer she got into an argument with Chris Brown over something that had occurred at an event they were at earlier in the evening.

"The victim said she became enraged and slammed both of her fists against the dashboard on the passenger side of the car they were in. She reported that the defendant then pulled the vehicle over and reached over her with his right hand. He opened the car door and tried to force the victim out."

According to the report, Brown was unable to shove Rihanna out of the car because she was wearing a seatbelt.

The report continues, "When he could not force her to exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against the passenger window of the car. "

"The victim then faced the defendant and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then continued driving."

"As he drove, he continued to punch the victim in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand."

Rihanna told cops the "assault caused her mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter over her clothing and the inside of the car."

Rihanna told cops after Brown "stopped his first assault .. she looked in the mirror and saw her eye beginning to swell.

[Brown] looked at [Rihanna] and said 'I'm going to beat the shit out of you when we get home! You wait and see!'"

Rihanna told police she tried to call her personal assistant, but she didn't pick up -- but Rihanna says she "pretended to talk, saying, 'I'm on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there.'"

Rihanna says she pulled the act "because she did not want to get beat anymore."

But after Rihanna's fake phone conversation, she claims Brown "looked at [Rihanna] and said, "You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I'm really going to kill you!"

Rihanna told cops that Brown unleashed a second wave of punches, "during which time [Rihanna] interlocked her fingers behind her head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face." He continued to punch her on her left arm, which caused a contusion on her left tricep.

At that point Rihanna tried texting her assistant. Brown threw the phone out of the car, stopped the vehicle and Rihanna then tried opening her door to get out, but Brown sped off and the door shut with Rihanna inside.

Brown placed Rihanna in a headlock while he drove, then bit her on her left ear. The car eventually stopped and Rihanna took the keys out of the ignition, and Brown began to punch her again in the face and arms. He placed her in a headlock and started applying pressure to her carotid artery. She couldn't breathe and began to lose consciousness. She tried freeing herself, and Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers and then released her.

Rihanna took off her shoe and tried breaking the passenger window, and he continued to punch her.

Eventually, Brown got out of the car. Rihanna opened the door and continued screaming. Brown began punching her again. He got back in the car and screamed "Where are my f***ing keys?" He got out, looked for the keys in vain, and when he could not find them removed several CDs and walked away.

Officers were called and observed numerous contusions and abrasions to Rihanna's face and forehead, as well as bruising on her left arm. There were other injuries as well.

Investigators determined Brown was wearing a large ring on his right hand which caused several of Rihanna's injuries.

How can anyone blame her?? NO one deserves to be beat up like that. That is why woman and children are abused every day, because of morons like the ones commenting that she asked for it or it was her fault! You are just as pathetic as Chris Brown!

It matters that she beat him up because that means she is not innocent.Think about her character also.I think the ones that are sticking up for Rihanna are just her stans.Your opinions don't count because they are biased and sexist[you do not care to be fair minded].Women can abuse men the same way men can abuse women.If she says and he says she hit him then she is at fault also.She was wrong.Get that through your thick head.

*The police only know what she told them[and the evidence they found].Just because she told the police she didn't hit him,it doesn't mean she didn't.God didn't give the police any information nor did God write up the affidavit.It could have went down in a thousand different ways.Her side is not pure fact. She didn't even get to testify to tell the [sworn] true story.If we want to figure things out we would have to use our common sense and ask "would Chris really have beaten her up that badly if she didn't really put her hands on him?"I don't think so.Use your heads!Where is Chris' side of the story?Anyway,it's over but the truth will come out in the future.

I read the police report and tried to visualize the actions of both Rihanna and Chris.I don't condom hitting a woman; but like others, Rihanna is not innocent from what she has done to Chris.They are young,very young people who are still finding themselves.Rihanna shows as a VERY OBSESSIVE AND DEMANDING WOMAN.

She should get some kind of punishment like Chris'5 yr. sentence on HOW NOT TO PROVOKE A MAN TO THE LEVEL she pushed Chris too.

I just hope Chris,as young as he is and with his extreme sentencing and depression; I hope he will not turn to DRUGS like so many do!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All you guys saying she started it need to grow up and probably are abusive themselves and even if she did slap him then he should have been a man and left not a little boy and smacked her around. What lack of self confidence and balls.

Nobody should be allowed to hit a woman.
If a man can not control his anger, then is not a man, not even a human being.

My father is 70 years old. There were many problems in our family life. But! My father NEVER EVER rise up his hand on my mother or us, his children.

To those who said she deserve it. I hope your daughter, mother, sister and any other female you care about gets the same beating. We will see how you feel about it then. A**HOLES are what you are and most likely men who beat on women too. Just because your father did it does not make it right. Your fathers are a**holes too and will get theirs when they arrive in the deepest levels of HELL because that is where they are going and you too if you don't change your ways and ask for forgiveness from god.

I know hitting/beating a woman is wrong. It is also wrong for a woman to hit a man just because she's angry at his stupid@ss. Women should be taught NOT TO HIT MEN! as much as men are told not to hit women.She pushed his buttons and got the worst end of it.Don't get me wrong He should have done some kind of jail time. Nonetheless, if you will be going at a man like a man be prepared to be hit like one's all animal instinct don't use being a woman as an excuse or a reason to hit a man.Teach your daughters not to hit men out of anger-teach them that men do and say stupid SH!T.They don't need to put up with it, but not hit a man either. Use this Rhianna/CB drama as an example.It's just not worth it.It's dissapointing he didn't go to jail, but I'll still listen to his music. His personal life is his business. I don't like Rhianna's voice that much.

ALSO, I read a whole report that Rhianna was upset that he received a text from another female, they argued , she slapped him. That would make more sense. I doubt it very highly he just decided,out of the blue , just to hit her. It's easy to be angry with him, after seeing the photos, it's just so sad.I'm still hoping he'll go to jail. I mentioned to teach your daughters not to hit men, females need to control their anger too, it's true real men shouldn't hit/beat women. Slap some sense into them tho, after they've hit a man I think that's best...hopefully that works!

You know its some retarded-ass bitches, going
"she deserve it."

"he never hit anybody besides her so its her fault."

You people are the ones that make women look bad, and if it was a man who made that comments. You MEN are the ones that will be going to jail for hitting a women.
Since when is domestic violence justified? When is it okay for a 21 year old women to get punched several times, choked and bitten, even when couples fight verbally, it should NEVER be physical!
This goes for women who initiate physical violence also.

It's sad to hear some of the people on here talking about how it was her fault and she deserved it. He was beating on her like she was a dude. He kept beating her and beating her. For those of you siding with Chris Brown, you are ignorant, moronic imbeciles, who should be wiped off the freaking planet.

Your a complete MORON - NO woman deserves to be hit, kicked, or punched by an man regardless!!!!

Wow. Just wow. NOBODY deserves what she got. However, after that attack, WTF was she thinking going back with him for that short time to "try and work it out?" I guess it's one of the those cases where the abused falls in love with their abuser. Sad. Very very sad.

I can't believe people are still defending this jerk especially after reading this. There is no excuse for hitting a woman. Chris Brown is a total douche.
