Chris Brown's car was totaled this afternoon after an alleged run-in with a pair of paparazzi, this according to the singer's rep. 

A rep for Brown tells TMZ he was driving in his car -- on his way to a charity event -- when he was cut off by two vehicles. The rep claims "the occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle. In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley at which point his was cut off by two additional vehicles."

The rep continued, "Chris' vehicle was totaled due to this agressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay."

Brown's car can be seen in the photo above, after it had been taken to the tow yard.

No, you were running. You can't let someone make you wreck your car...someone can't make you speed either. You make millions dude, suck it up.

Mmmm... backing down the alley his car got totaled. It's the front end that is damaged in the picture. He was being approached by photogs on foot from the front during Grammy season. No one likes the paps, but this sounds more like one person needs some medication for anger. If someone is blocking your way on a public road, you don't have the right to ram them with your car, if you did we'd all have totaled cars...

Don't look like there's that much damaged. Totaled? I doubt it. But seriously, how many people have got to die before something is done about the paparazzi? Isn't that the same as stalking?

This article manipulates the reader into making a negative comment about Chris Brown. The focus should be on the aggressive paparazzi. The aggressive paparazzi contributed to the sudden death on Princess Diana. The should be a law to control the crazy, dangerous, and reckless paparazzi.

No. It's just like the police. They only crash when they choice to be silly and make a run for it. They're in their right to take his picture as long as they don't interfere.

Since 'COPS' is going off the air they should make a new show. The pap could have dash mounted camera and chase celebrities and watch them crash. That would've been something to see this happen. Then he couldn't make up his own story. With the light of stuff happening, like paps dying etc I bet this'd be a good idea.
