6:10 PM PT -- A spokesman for the Beverly Hills Police department released a statement saying, "On February 9, 2013 at approximately 1203pm, entertainer Chris Brown was involved in a solo, non-injury traffic collision in the 600 Block Bedford Drive/Camden Drive alley. Mr. Brown was the driver of the vehicle and collided with a wall. Brown stated that he was being chased by paparazzi causing him to lose control of his vehicle. Brown's Black Porsche was towed from the scene at his request."

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.

How did he demolish his car in an ALLEY? Must've been angry, crashing his car into the others. Did he flee the scene on foot? Where are the paps' photos?
He is one scary ugly violent punk, even uses those wicked teeth as weapons... how much meat did he rip out of RiRi's arm when he attacked & bit her on the way to the Grammy's?

See, this is the problem, Chris Brown: you're always the victim of some "atrocity", so it becomes difficult to tell whether you're being honest or not.

and of course TMZ will be the first to buy the photos, thus encouraging these s***bag paparazzi who chase all these people around. Not that I'm a Chris Brown fan but I have experienced the over the top behavior of some of these jerks. ALL because TMZ and the like pay for photos

Really    

TMZ you just can't wait to through shade at CB can you? And you have a freakin' lawyer on your team, yet post such ignorance without all the facts. Stop reporting on him if you hate him so badly and can't report objectively. For all you idiots posting, not one of you nasty posters have anything to say about this ridiculous paparazzi and their antics. One died chasing a celebrity just recently---and the celebrity is the douche bag. C'mon now. How soon do we forget? So many incidents involving paps and it is his fault because they chased him for a darn photo. UNREAL!

.....you know...more and more I think about it...so many HUGE actors and musicians live their lives under the radar and don't deal with all this papps nonsense..and go too great lengths too avoid...then u have a handful of attentions actors/musicians who are very successful who just thrive on this kinda drama ...and then go all boohoo about the press....to those of you..maybe sit back and evaluate how long you want too be around in the " biz"...cause u ones who crave and seek out this kind of attention weekly...NEVER last long term..like..the a fore mentioned..just saying....

Um, that story sounds ... incomplete? TMZ is not the best when it comes to getting details right, so I'll wait to hear what the real news sites have to say. Who picks the photos for these articles, though? That is the most unflattering photo I've seen of him - ever!
