Chris Brown

ABC Won't Press Charges

3/23/2011 9:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown has dodged a bullet after his alleged window-smashing meltdown at "Good Morning America" Tuesday -- because network sources tell TMZ .... ABC has decided NOT to press charges.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... the NYPD will not investigate the matter because there is no complaining victim.

That's especially good news for CB -- because he's currently on probation for beating up Rihanna ...
and could have faced prison time if the judge violated his probation on grounds he committed vandalism.

We're told the judge will not violate Chris' probation unless New York prosecutes him ... and that's not going to happen.

No word if Chris will pay for the broken window.

Astronomical "Dancing with the Stars" ratings are obviously more important to ABC than a window.

Besides which, the bitch set him up.

“Of course they're not going to press charges, because then everyone would blame ABC, and not the idiot himself, for acting like an idiot. Just like the way the ghetto trash blame Rihanna for what happened, and not the guy who beat the crap out of a woman seatbelted in a car.”

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Very, VERY well said!

And I also agree with No. 4, Amber. I really don’t want anything bad to happen to anybody either, but I wouldn’t have been mad at all if somebody had the guts to press charges against this fool.

What a monster !

Chris Brown has to learn his lesson the hard way, and probation was NOT hard enough.

The way he’s going, Chris Brown is a candidate to be a 3 striker, meaning, he’s already got one felony against him involving violence, 2 more and he’ll get 25 years to life.

Sadly, no one, but his worker-trolls, saw him do it...and they aren't going to bite the hand which feeds them, for the last 3 minutes of his "fame." Also, sadly, getting away with it, will make his "can't touch me" mindset even bigger. Pond s***!

@Disturbed:
The definition of Dumbass is someone who believe any nonsensical thing he is told. Someone who would believe, for instance, that Chris Brown would have approved of someone badgering him on a subject that he plainly does not want to discuss.
Dumbass.

Robin was doing her "JOB" people. That's what reporters do; they drill you as much possible too get the answer they want. And black has nothing to do it people. People screw over people day & night, Night & day, regardless of race. Do you think Oprah got to where she is today, because of black people alone? No! That's why we have a whack ass president, because society is always thinking about race, race, race!

Chris went into a Divo state, and acted like idiot. He got lucky that ABC didn't press charges. He should apologize! Get help with his baby tantrums. His mom or whoever close to clown, needs to talk to this guy, before he ends up "booty paradise" (prison).

I feel all kids of ways about this........ 1st I DO NOT LIKE CHRIS BROWN due to the Rihanna situation.
Don't front about who you are, which is what he did until he could not hide from beating a woman.
But along with that he is obviously self destructive & probably self medicating. Due to being in the lime light he is probably spoiled & will not seek the Psychiatric help he needs at the root of this.
But common keep your ass off live T.V if your going threw some stuff. But you know darn well he has a team of people leading him down a very dark Road??????

Oh and even if he is not charged. I really hope his PROBATION officer and JUDGE is aware of his behavior.Even if they cant violate him, they can ride his as* and show him THEY are boss. I feel a few drug tests are in order, somehow I am sure he is not sober.

ABC isn't pressing charges because they don't know who actually broke the window. While Chris Brown should be held responsible if he did indeed lose control and caused damage, the mob has assumed perception is reality. If it was indeed one of the people with him, he's not going to say because the person would go straight to jail -- because s/he's NOT Chris Brown. While Roberts claims Brown was given a list of the questions, knowing how this works, it was given to someone who's part of his team and may have been blindsided by the questions. ABC came down on the positive side of this, trust me. There were plenty more viewers this morning of GMA. Controversy is the new rage for getting attention. Just ask Charlie Sheen.

Yo Chris, would you sucker punch this btch so she knows what you’re talking about.

Question: What do you say to a girl with 2 black eyes?
Answer: Nothing. You already told her twice.

Go ahead Cheryl, stick up for bullies, so YOU can be the bully’s punching bag.

Get a clue, would you! Chris Brown pled guilty on his own, in exchange for NOT going to jail. He admitted he was guilty. Instead of sticking up for punks, you might want to find a real hero who isn't out committing felonies.

Those things would have been proved IF the cops were given a chance too investigate and called in right after. That's there job, ABC didn't even TRY too do the right thing here.
