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.

ABC will not press charges because they knew Robin was not suppose to ask him about "devil worshipping" Rihanna. If ABC would have pressed charges Chris brown would have had a huge law suit. Robin was wrong and thats why ABC is trying to drop it and so Robin can keep her job. Chris Brown management team never agrees for him to talk about the Rihanna case. The View asked if they could ask about Rihanna and his management team declined him coming on the View. So what makes everyone think his management team would have approved it for GMA. GMA and Robin were wrong. Oh by the way Chris will perform on Dancing with the Stars because if not thats another huge law suit and Chris Brown knows it. Chris Brown is waiting for ABC,GMA, or Dancing with the Stars to mess up because he will sue the crap out of them. I bet thats the last time someone ask him about Rihanna. Good Job Chris. Don't kiss no a$$ and continue to be successful at your job. You have my support 100% Chris Brown.

Why does ABC think that by not pressing charges they are doing something good for the guy. Allowing irresponsibile and destructive people off the hook to be nice is not nice. He will escape taking responsibility once again. It's not the kind or right thing to do.

it is not the publics place to judge him or anyone. if he was not in the spotlight would you be saying the same thing. i am pretty sure plenty of you have gotten angry over an ex or questions that when you are trying to move on and it is thrown in your face over and over again. Pray for the man not condemn the man.

8. Let's terminate or at least write up Robin for attempting this game. She KNEW he had moved on and Rihanna has and we all have. She needled him and it worked.

Brown was told prior to the interview that he would be asked questions about the incident with Rihanna, and he approved in advance - so why are you blaming Robin?

How many of us have made mistakes in our lives; now how many of us want to keep having that shigady brought up every time we turn around.

This country has a group that is always judge and jury, and let the truth be made known, most of them do worse than this everyday!

ABC wimped. NYPD wimped.

Chris Brown thinks he won. He didn't, he'll just end up doing worse, because he has no self control, and no boundaries, and now the world has told him it doesn't matter.

ABC CANNOT DO ANYTHING BUT DROP THE CHARGES! Chris Brown was very nice and very charming at the beginning until Robin Roberts began pushing and pushing even tho Chris said he was there to promote his new album, period! This young man has been taunted, non stop, ever since that horrible incident but, the public keeps on kicking and kicking. Is it any wonder he blew his top? For the Love of God, leave this man alone and permit him to make a living. If Mr. and Mrs. John Q. Public have NEVER stepped out of line IN ANY WAY, please come forward and tell us, HOW COME!!!

I have a hunch that ABC feared loss of sponsorship and viewers via fan boycotts.

Well, I'm boycotting ABC, because they didn't follow through.

Oh! NO!!!! How it is possible that ABC studios isn't pressing charges? I bet you if i broke a window because i was mad, you know the cops would have taken me away. He needs to learn his lesson, I guess his anger management classes didn't work. He gave the go-ahead for those questions to be asked, it's not the reporter's fault he simply can't handle question's regarding that incident. He needed to be the bigger person and say, "I made a mistake I've paid my dues and now it's time to move on" PERIOD! But Noooooooooo!!! He acts like a child because he is a child.
