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.

More Hollywood justice. The bigger the putz, the more they get away with.

And this putz definitely deserves some prison time ... but ... ahhhh, don't the all? Lohan, another Lohan, Sheen, and on and on and on.

ABC IS MOSTLY TO BLAME for clearing Ms. Roberts to delve into such a sensitive subject concerning Rihanna. Chris Brown said he was here to talk about his new album but but Ms Roberts kept pushing him for more details about his past behavior. I can imagine how he has been taunted about his outrageous behavior against Rihanna but, GMA was not the appropriate time to bring it up. They need to learn to "let sleeping dogs lie." The stuffed shirts at ABC have demonstrated they feel they know better than anyone else.THEY DO NOT!!! Chris Brown has been trying to CORRECT HIS PAST but how can he SURVIVE if ABC and the PUBLIC refuse to back off???

The reason people keep asking that a$$ hole about his past is because HE BEAT THE CRAP OUT OF A WOMEN!!!!!!! HE IS AN ABUSER!!!!! He came out publicly and said he got help and has changed his ways, well guess what folks he didn't. It really makes me sick to see the women on her making excuses for him. So i guess if it were you that got beat it would be ok.

That goes to show you what is important to ABC network! ABC Lets Chris Brown off the hook and when he injures someone else and he will because he is a abuser then ABC should be held for stupidity. This is absolutely ridiculous with the celebrities and i don't understand why Nothing is done. Where the hell is our justice system????

All previous comments are so sad. Is anyone perfect? I have not met a perfect person yet. We all have weaknesses. People struggles with serious problems such as drug addiction,alcohol addiction,food/diet,anger management and etc. Yes, he hurt Rihanna and it was an awful thing. However, he admitted it and did what the court/judge asked of him. Now he has to move on and live his life. We learn from our mistakes and move on. Come on people if you did something wrong and trying to change your life. Would you want the world not to give you a chance to change? You want the world to keep stomping on you, when you make an attempt to start over? Instead of trying to destroy a person completely, we should try to help them be a better person. People seem to be so judgemental and unforgiven. We are not perfect, people and have many skeletons in our very own closet. Try living a life under a microscope(media), it appears to be no fun at all. TMZ lets try to show Chris Brown in a positive light, instead of trying get the dirt all the time. I know that probably would be boring story.

Why is Chris Brown's behavior excused?? He should be held accountable like any other idiot who acted the same way...something's not right here.
You beat a woman, get slapped on the wrist for it, break a window on an office building potentially causing harm or injury on the streets below, and ABC decides to let it go.
Any other Tom, ****, or Harry on probation would be in jail in a flash.

Way to blow it ya stupid piece of sh*t. Chris Brown will always be famous for one thing and one thing only. Beating the livin' sh*t out of a helpless Rhianna. Now he has just reminded the world who Chris Brown always was, and still is!!!

First, to JLS, get a clue. Robin and Chris are friends, and he OK'd the questions multiple times, right up until moments before Robin asked them. This is either another rage incident, or staged for attention. My guess is the latter. Either way, he's pathetic and ridiculous.

Next, to Sheri on The View, someone saying Chris Brown behaved "like a thug" has nothing to do with race or Charlie Sheen. The word thug by definition alludes to a more brutish gangster-like individual, which Chris is. Calling him what he is in no way diminishes Charlie Sheen's awful behavior. One has nothing to do with the other, and no one is celebrating Charlie's behavior. Charlie is just a different type of disgusting. He's more white-collar, drug addicted and mentally ill. He is suffering from over indulgence and behaves as such, like a spoiled movie star, not as a thug. Doesn't make one loser any better than the other, just different. Chris has anger management and rage issues, and prefers female targets. Charlie is a manic walking overdose who slips from reality and flies into rages when he doesn't get his way or someone doesn't agree with him. His targets also often happen to be women. Again, both very different styles and reasons for acting out, but both equally pathetic losers. Get over the race thing, Sheri. It's not always about race.
