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.

That WASN'T the way to handle his anger, but this was not VIOLENCE, no living things were assaulted or injured or threatened. This was A TEMPER TANTRUM. If that counts as violence, people, then SEAN PENN=VIOLENT, MARLON BRANDO=VIOLENT, JOHN BOEHNER=VIOLENT, RUSH LIMBAUGH=VIOLENT, EVERY ROCK STAR TO EVER TRASH A HOTEL SUITE (INCLUDING CLAPTON!)=VIOLENT, RIHANNA=VIOLENT, MADONNA=VIOLENT...you get the point? Solo temper tantrums may result in VANDALISM...but not violence. He took "Anger Management" classes, not ANGER-ERASING, HUMANITY-DEPROGRAMMING CLASSES! People get angry when their hard word and progress is sabotaged, people get angry when they're lied to and used...judge him by a white guy's standards, and he's just acted like 99% of the crew from the "Jackass" movies.

i'm tired of these arrogant jerks getting off, he is on probation, he should have been charged!!

This idiot knew the questions before they were asked on air and then he decides to take a hissy fit like a typical man-child. What a disgusting excuse for a 'man'.

He absolutely should have been arrested. Not only for destruction of property but what if....what if someone had been hit by the broken glass. It is just total luck that no one was hit. ABC should press charges and they should do it today, lest other jerks are inclined to do the same thing.

The handlers of Chris Brown have probably already paid for all of the physical property damages. That would likely explain, why there is . . . "no complaining victim."

This guys a waste of flesh. Such a tough guy, first he beats up a girl and then he beats up a pain of glass. This guy is 115lbs soaking wet, I can't wait till he snaps on a dude, he's gonna get he ass handed to him. What a *****. Stop supporting this vile pig.

" THEY DIDNT PRESS CHARGES CAUSE THEY DIDNT KNOW WHO THREW THE CHAIR. HE WASNT THE ONLY ONE IN THE ROOM!!!!!!! "

Well, let's not kid ourselves!!! Chris Brown left the ABC Studios abruptly, immediately following the incident, after screaming, removing his shirt, and his direct confrontation of one of the producers. He effectively "bailed" on another ABC obligation which would have promoted his new album, effectively throwing away an advertising opportunity. And, he never denied the activity. "2 + 2" usually equals "4", my friend . . .

Also, I am not sure that trying to use Charlie Sheen as your frequent comparative benchmark is the best approach.

You may have dodged jail this time Chris but your crimes against fashion and music will get you in the end. Throw in an extra 5 years for that ridiculous haircut too..
