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.

TMZ, you guys must be bored to repost something from six months ago. Yes, what Chris Brown did was absolutely horrible, but I am still a fan of his music. Whether or not he continues to make money should not affect whether or not he will continue the cycle of domestic violence. To be honest, anyone who does not know Chris personally should not judge him, because after researching and finding out what people are saying about him, the people who actually know him say that he is definitely working on getting his life back together. So when I here that, that tells me that he definitely feels remorse and he is doing whatever he can to ensure that he never lays his hands on another woman ever again. I have to say that I wish Chris and Rihanna all of the success and happiness and I truly hope that they are REALLY getting their lives together.

Anyone that supports his career after reading this statement is condoning the physical abuse of women. There is NO excuse for his actions. Even if she had hit him first, you NEVER hit a woman. He's the biggest coward, and loser of all. Don't support this piece of sh@t. There are plenty of talented black male singer/dancers out there that DESERVE your praise and attention. This bum is simply that, a bum. It sickens me whenever I see his photos pop up with smiling idiots standing next to him like he's some kind of hero.

Myth #19 - Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women.

According to the US Department of Health and Human Services, the leading causes of injury to women are unintentional falls, motor vehicle accidents, and overexertion. Domestic violence doesn’t appear on the list of leading causes of injury.

“Violence against women…” Many domestic violence claims begin with this phrase, implying intimate partner violence against men is so infrequent as to be unworthy of mention. Nearly 250 scholarly studies
show women are at least as likely as men to engage in partner aggression and that partner violence is often mutual. But the government only punishes men.

@Teebag, who are you to say that by supporting Chris' music that his fans are supporting his actions? You don't know some of his fans obviously, for you to put them all into a box like you did. You should be ashamed of yourself for judging. There is only one God, and that is definitely NOT YOU.

Myth #3 "One in four women experience domestic violence sometime in their lifetimes."

Approximately equal numbers of men and women experience domestic violence during their lifetimes. The reported number of victims varies depending on how aggression is defined.
