ABC:

We're Calling the Cops

on Chris Brown

3/22/2011 2:03 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

ABC staffers called the cops after Chris Brown's tirade this AM to document the broken window in the building, and this could spell big trouble for the famous singer who is currently on probation.

0322-cops-are-coming-audio-launch-3
TMZ obtained audio near the dressing room where Chris allegedly took a chair and smashed a window, sending shards of glass onto 43rd Street.  During the conversation between the staffer and a glass repairman, the staffer says "I have a police officer coming just to take a look at it before we do any work."

Despite the conversation, NYPD sources tell us ... none of their officers were dispatched to the scene.

If Chris did indeed smash the window, it probably constitutes at least 2 crimes -- vandalism and assault on the passersby below.   As a result, the judge in the Rihanna battery case could revoke Chris' probation and, worst case scenario, he could end up in prison.

It doesn't matter if Chris is dead wrong and a thug, it was smart for ABC to not get the police involved.

If they did they would have had to arrest Chris, this would likely violate whatever probation he was under, this would send him back to jail (or prison ?). ABC/GMA would then be seen as instigating this whole mess and then being the ones responsible for landing Chris back in jail.

ABC does not want to create that mess, it would make them and GMA have to endure alot of press criticism and maybe even boycotts, which nobody can have with this economy.

ABC should just fix the window and move on. Chris did all the damage to himself already and that's enough for one lousy pane of glass.

This guy obviously didn't learn his lesson. He never even took responsibility for what he did to Rhianna in the first place. Maybe to the public he prepped a nice speech doing so but in his mind he says " f__k that!"
This kid really needs a more stern wakeup call cuz he's a **** ..

only in this world can his career continue , so sad .. what loser

this must be a super tough choice for ABC to make. I can't imagine being faced with that. Either way, I'm sure police will come a knocking!

Can't stand this clown. I'm so tired of seeing all these TMZ headlines involving thuggy black guys. One day I was on here and it was headline after headline about this rapper and that rapper, all of them being thugs. Don't know who any of them are and don't care. They're all clowns.

I'm sooooo happy that he flipped out yet again. He's a wolf in an idiots clothing and an idiot can only pretend for so long before he slips up. He can kiss all the ass he wants when he see a judge and take as many anger management classes they can throw at him but it seems anger runs strong in this one. I hope he gets put in jail for this one but i'm sure he won't. I would love to see him have an outburst like this while he's in jail. LOL We might get a story on some good ole inmate justice if he did.

Harvey you can be SURE that the police were never called, the people that cleaned up the damage were ABC security and NOT NYPD. NYPD would have already picked up CHRIS BROWN for doing this.

You're being lied to Harvey while Chris Brown is allowed to leave New York City on a private jet.

I hope that DWTS cancels his appearance next week. As it's a family show, Chris Brown has no place there. Bring in David Cook instead - he's got a new album about to drop. Or Jennifer Hudson. Either would be a vast improvement.

Nearly 2 pm eastern time. Harvey I would bet you Chris is on his way to the bahamas. His flight is probably getting ready to touch down. There will be no NYPD investigation.

If it were you Harvey you would be in a New York City jail.

I think it was inappropriate this late in the game to ask him questions about the beat down. He did it, he admitted to it, did his time, and wants to move on. The story ran its course.
A sad, pathetic, desperate, reach for ratings.

Everyone else seems to have moved on, why not this interviewer?

I'm not a fan or supporter of CB, just saying, this was totally wrong of ABC to jam him up about this now.

Just the network and this interviewer thinking about their own ratings than why someone agrees to go on their show, to support their latest project.

She should be fired, her journalism integrity has been tainted. He of course, should pay for the window.

Agree with you, #67. Its rather convinent, even for a studio, to have a microphone thats "hot" just by happenstance when something is going on in a dressing room. Smells like a set up

Jess, beating a woman black and blue is WAY more than just a mistake...he doesn't deserve forgiveness, he deserves to be in jail with like-minded criminals.
