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.

Guess Jay Leno is going to get better insurance if he is going to let this punk on the set.

Maybe GMA should have a padded celebrity room, for Chris, Charlie, Liho, Milo and assorted other nut job ash holios from hollywood.

Chris Brown needs to know that this is unacceptable behavior! ABC should have called the police and press charges and Chris Brown needs to be made to pay for all damages. He could have hurt people on the ground when that glass ****tered from the window to the ground. ABC probably didn't want to press charges since Brown is supposed to sing on "Dancing With The Stars" next week and didn't want to jeopardize that. Brown violated his probation when he displayed his behavior. He should be in jail for this and face charges of property damages and made to pay for them! Robin didn't ask anything that was provokable or unprofessional in that interview. And even if it were, there is no excuse for this violent behavior! Just because he is a celebrity doesn't give him a right to act in this manner. ABC was wrong not to press charges and how is the man going to learn that this type of behavior is unacceptable when it is just swept under the rug like this. And a lot of kids look up to him, is this the kind of behavior you want kids to look up to, this is like saying to kids that this is OK when in fact it is NOT!

Great, so a petulant, young man can continue his violent behavior without being held accountable.

That is bull****! This is a real incident with lots of evidence (versus the LiLo circus)! If ABC is trying to save face with Chris Brown, that is just sad.

he's just too ugly for me, I don't get the interest in him, his music doesn't do squat for me either, then on top of that, he has anger problems.

First off...he is still Immature. He came there to promote his new success. Not be embarrased on National TV. I'm sure he was ready for some questions about the incident, but from what I saw, they were putting him on trial again. Not like any of you people did stupid things ever in your life? The network covered their butts. They were indeed guilty. And Chris, Go back, apologize, and pay for the damage. You still have a lot to learn. How to deal with anger is one of them. All of you should be ashamed.

HAHAHAHAHAH    

You guys don't have to worry. This isn't the last time that idiot goes into a rage. He beat the crap outta Rihanna, broke ABC's glass, and if you actually can read the Rihanna beating wasn't the first time he had hit her. He will do it again. He's a thug. The funny thing is the girls that make all over him....are you serious? He beat a fellow women and your making all over him? He doesn't give a crap about you....he wants your money! I hope all these girls that say " mistakes happen " get back handed and two black eyes from their men one time. Bet they won't preach that " mistakes happen" when their lip looks like Kim Kardashians a$$!
Oh Chris whether they press charges or not your sad career is ruined to the point you had to put Justin Beiber on your record to get more sales hahahahahahahah!!!!
