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.

Yeah, exactly! Too funny! I hate ABC...even their website doesn't allow free thinking comments neither, but they censor any comment they disagree with. A bunch of hypocrite wusses on ABC!

How many times are we as a society gonna allow this type of behavoir?? Chris obviously is not Better after his anger management courses (what a joke). How much did that cost the tax payers of california? Wonder how Abc is gonna feel when he does something to hurt someones down the road. People need to be accountable for their actions!!!!!

Seems like a coordinated publicity stunt with ABC. He just happens to do this on the day his new album releases, and ABC just happens to not press charges (which would have sent him back to jail.)

I'm not buying, literally or figuratively.

wow    

You people are pathetic and hypocrites. I'm not fond of CB or condone his alleged actions but he's young. Rock stars and celebrities trash and damage places all the time. He isn't the first and he won't be the last. He should run to anger management classes in the near future but ABC is partly responsible for for pushing him so hard. Your god Charlie Sheen (a "mature" man) orders up cases of drugs, trash hotel rooms, abuse wives and whores and you can't get enough of him so leave this guy alone. I'm sick of double standards.

Of course not now if it was the janitor who did it you bet your a** ABC would have them thrown in jail.

This is why celeb walk around doing whatever the f*k they want. Chances are no one will call the cops on them and even if they do they will be treated with kid gloves by the cops and the courts.

I in no way condone what Chris Brown did, nor do I condone his behavior at ABC. However, when will people stop asking him about the incident and just let him be? Charlie Sheen has beaten all of his wives and openly snorted a gallon of coke yet people are buying Team Sheen shirts in droves! Mel Gibson's rants and behavior on tape were horrifying, yet TMZ polls show that people still love him, and hate his ex! Why won't people give Chris Brown the same forgive and forget attitude? Is Rhi Rhi really that loved? I mean seriously, she spends most of her time showing her vagina to everyone who will look at it both on and off stage, and we hold her is such high regard we just won't forgive him?! What a double standard! For the record, I do NOT advocate abuse in any way, shape or form (as i am sure some idiot will accuse me of supporting women being beaten), I am just saying let him be seen now for his merits and music, not his past! The day he came out with his new album, TMZ re-posted pictures of Rhihoho's face all over the website.....now how fair is that?

Wow. I am super pisssed at ABC for not pressing charges. Those gutless suits are now among the legions of enablers of a-holes.

If you don't like ABC Televisions decision to protect and to continue to court Chris Brown, call them to complain. Their number is 212-456-7000

Chris brown comes off as an a$$. No one cares about his album and he's no Conway Twitty.

Very wise of the execs from ABC. By taking the high ground of not being part of someone's career destruction, the light then shines on the destroyer himself.

He's just a big baby. He seems to think people should just act like nothing ever happened so he can go back to making music and tons of money. Being a celebrity is a privilege, not an entitlement. It's 90% luck and 10% talent. There are plenty of young men, just as (if not more) talented than him, waiting to take his place. Hopefully they will treat their good fortune with more respect than he did. See ya CB!
