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.

You broke the window intentionally, Chris. That's legally called VANDALISM. You violated your probation. But for some reason, you're getting away with it.

Go figure.

Well, we all know it won't be long before Chris is in trouble again. It's discouraging watching people implode when they are so lucky, especially when so many people are struggling.....

This sets a very bad precedent in regards to 'stars' behaving-badly. Not only does ABC's action by not pressing charges, give him the green-light to do it again, he is a 'ticking-time-bomb', because if the few questions that were asked got him this riled up, you know damn-@SS well, he is going to do it again. I hope the next person that he does go after, gets him good and gets his dumb-black-@ss sent back to jail for a probation violation. Whatever Judge is handling this case, needs to bring him back and he needs to get him back into counseling, but he cannot change his order so this one, looks like he escaped it this time. But what really needs to happen is that everyone see's this douche-bag for what he really is and not buy his album and don't give him any radio airplay or interview or press coverage and hear him WHINE all over again how he is being 'targeted'. No Brown, your history is a part of you NOW and it speaks louder than anything you ever do again as a performer! Two years - TOO SOON! IDIOT-DOUCHE BAG!

Oh please!! You are the SAME ****s defending those 'thugs' Charlie Sheen and mad Mel Gibson so don't try and act like now you all have standards! Or that white celebrity justice is the same as black celebrity justice is as for the questions being 'approved' she asked it once then MOVE THE F**K ON! She kept hounding him so she knew good and well what se was doing as for the 'blame the victim' isn't that EXACTLY what people do every time it's a white male?! Stacy Dash says her white husband beat her and all dummies on here can do is yack about her career and how 'old and wrinkled' she suppsoedly looks. Spare the me the holier than bulls**t you all give WHITE MEN a pass all the time so come off it fake b**ches!

If it would have been a "civilian" such as me ABC would have certainly pressed charges. If it would have been Sarah Palin then it would have been headline news...

And for those a##holes whining about what kind of 'message' this sends WHAT THE F**K KIND OF MESSAGE DOES IT SEND WHEN YOU B**CHES MAKE THUG ASS CHARLIE SHEEN'S SHOW NUMBER ONE AND HE GETS PAID MILLIONS PER EPISODE AND SELLS OUT ON HIS LITTLE 'TOUR'?!!! You pricks need to look in a damn mirror before you criticize others for letting people 'off the hook' and oh yeah many WHITE celebrities get away with s**T ALL THE DAMN TIME while you fake a$$ little s**ts just think it's so 'funny'!

What would happen if one of us smashed a window at ABC studios in NYC? If something more happens with Brown, ABC could be sued.

Maria... You seem too have anger issues also babe. Therapy is needed STAT.

FYI. I as a WHITE "girl" Do not like Charlie Sheen he is also a women beating nut case a*shole. He deserves too be in jail with his kids far away from him. Linsey Lohan is bashed EVERY day on every blog for her actions. Don't be putting ALL people into your category.

Just as I would assume, not all educated black people support Chris "woman beater punk" Brown.

Too bad. You do the crime, you should do the time. If ABC lets him off now, I hope someone in the future is not hurt by this guy. Too many times a disturbed person escapes jail time only to end up killing or badly hurting a future victim.
