Chris Brown

I Want to Talk to Cops

About Frank Ocean Fight

Chris Brown swears he didn't start Sunday night's violent brawl with Frank Ocean ... and he's champing at the bit to tell cops what went down in the recording studio parking lot ...TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, has already contacted detectives and said the singer is ready, willing and able to give them the blow-by-blow, because he knows he did nothing wrong.

What's more ... sources say Geragos' team has surveillance video of the last part of the fight, and Chris is as clean as a whistle -- not throwing a single punch. 

But here's the thing.  We're told the video also clears Frank Ocean -- he never takes a swing at anyone.  The fighting is between the two posses.

The video, however, is not the be-all and end-all, because it only captured the back end of the fight.  The altercation began in the parking lot and no cameras were trained on the action.  So it doesn't show who started it.  The fight moved into the lobby, and that's where the camera captured the brawl.

Chris' account is radically different from a witness who claims Chris threw the first punch.

As for why Chris booked it before cops arrived, we're told Geragos gave him the strictest of instructions ... if he ever got in a situation where trouble was brewing, he MUST leave immediately.

Yeah, Mark Geragos has impeccable clients ... like Scott Peterson and Michael Jackson! The more "trouble" that just happens to swirl around his clients, that better his advice ... (and the fatter his bank balance becomes). LOL!

Oh no! Certainly Chris Brown didn't start this fight! It wasn't his fault when he beat up Rihanna. The fight at the club last summer with Drake wans't his fault, and now this. He's never at fault for any drama!

Get real! This f'ing wimp is never gonna take responsibility for his actions, and own up to what he does. It's easier to just blame it all on the other party. Every time some drama pops off involving this dude it's never his fault!

I'll pay for the neon sign above his cell that tells everyone he beats on women!

Chris wants us to believe he's man enough to beat up women, but not men. He starts a fight, but not macho enough to stick around to either finish the fight or talk to the police.
.
After Chris' legal team found out there's no video taken when he actually started the fight, now he's willing to talk to the police days after the fight.

What if the witness does not like Chris Brown and is not telling the truth? Hopefully the cops will not depend entirely on the witness.

Hmmm, so this means CB and his lawyer have had time to come up with a plausible story.

NOW he is ready to speak with the authorities?? "Booking" from the cops like he did shows the guilt, imo. He could've called his attorney from the scene...or....simply kept his hands to himself. Oh wait, it's CB; he has no anger management skills and can't control himself. Probation violation? One can only hope...
