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.

For all you haters out there...for no reason at all should a man hit a woman! If that was your mom or sister would you still say it's right.
She is the victim, the mother f**ker hit her, no beat her and like a little bitch walked away! Oh, but cared more about CD's that he couldn't leave behind!He could have killed her!! He is such a looser!! His own mother was a victim of voilence and he said on Tyra Show he would never hit a woman after seeing his mother go through that, it shows alot of his character as a man/boy. I think his ass should be in jail!!! People go to jail for a lot less. Yes I have enjoyed his music, but I could live with out it, there's always bigger and better artist coming out each year.

I am f-ing APPALLED at how many people are DEFENDING this douche-hat. You like a celebrity for his supposed "music" and that justifies the actions explained above? Are you kidding me? "She deserved it"?

Get an education, stop being sheep to people who obviously deserve to be in jail, and do something with your life.

I lose more and more faith in our youth everyday. Imagine these people in leadership positions. Good lord.

A man hit a woman. A person beat a person. What a GREAT role model!!!!!!!! If they were not famous, this would have NOT been news and sadly it happens all the time. Could care less about those people as much as the people/ children who are going to be influenced by this event.... Common sense says walk away and do your time.

I've read lots of comments regarding Chris Brown being the bad boy! What about Rhiann? She slapping the guy, hitting the dashboard of the car....sounds like she's a diva bitch...and she got what she probably deserved. I hope he just stays away from her!!! Move on...when is your next concert Chris...I'm sure aaaaaalll your fans will be there! Big price to pay for a chick that likes to antagonize ... and then gets away 'clean as a whiste!' Ugh

Are you serious? Chris Brown got off too easy, from reading this I'd want him in Jail for the rest of his miserable life. Makes me sick to my stomach what a douche. Chris Brown is BEYOND immature, he needs a taste of his own medicine. Im glad he's doing hard labor, they should get him to work on a farm & clean cow Sh*t, milk a cow let it kick him in the face.

I cant believe what I am reading!
there are @sshole guys that are commenting that its her fault??????
she is a woman, whether she started the argument or not which we dont know if it was even her that started it,he has no right to punch her over and over again and smash her head into the window and strangle her in a headlock and threaten to take her life!
Just like Michael Vick there is no sorry for what Chris Brown did!
you cant say sorry and take it back, both Chris Brown and Michael Vick had plenty of time to change their minds and to not have done these evil things but they did!
They just want to pretend they are sorry to get the fans back so he will keep the money flow going, its an outrage!!!
as far as I am concerned Vick Deserves the Electric chair and Brown deserves to be raped in the @ss in prison!

IMO -- Chris Brown looks exactly like an APE
(I think it's because his eyebrows are so low).



Seriously — the boy looks exactly like an ape (or maybe a
chimp or something — but definitely some type of a monkey).



It surprises me that few people seem to have ever noticed this.



It’s not racist to say this either — because it is ‘Chris Brown’
(not every single black person) who looks like a monkey.
