Chris Brown Car Accident

Paps Call BS

We Didn't Cause the Crash!

2/10/2013 12:00 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

crash_scene_launch_wmChris Brown's single car accident yesterday afternoon left his car totaled and the wall he hit shattered in pieces ... but the paparazzi on the scene are calling BS on Chris' story that it was their fault.

Brown's rep released a statement yesterday claiming he was cut off by two photographers and blamed the accident on "aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi." The photos above show the aftermath of the crash with Chris talking to cops and his car being towed away.

TMZ spoke with Chris Doherty, owner of INF, the photo agency that employed all the photographers on scene. He tells us that he is positive his photogs "had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing."

Doherty says his photogs arrived AFTER Chris crashed, telling TMZ, "No photographers were following him at the time he crashed ... He crashed his car and it’s convenient for him to blame us. He needs to be careful with his defamatory statements."

Doherty also says his photogs were interviewed on scene by police who "appeared to be satisfied" the photogs were not the cause of the accident.

A spokesman for the Beverly Hills PD would not comment on the accident beyond the press release sent out yesterday:

"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."

A rep for Brown tells TMZ they are considering a lawsuit over the crash.

"He'd better be careful with his defamatory statements..." say the angry paps.

Okay, that's the civil side -- but if the angry paps are right, and assuming he police were given the same inaccurate report of the accident -- isn't that lying to the police?

Or maybe he beat up a 10 year old that is confined to a wheel chair that refused to shake his woman-beating hand and crashed his car while fleeing the scene.

Who cares... why not just waste our time on some stories regarding other POS "celebrities" that aren't worth Hitlers toilet paper? Why not Ike Turner or Michael Vick or Casey Anthony? stop glorifying this POS with coverage of ANY type.

Of course, they are going to say that they arrived after the crash. People will believe them because its Chris Brown. Pay up paps. Harvey probably told them to say that.

He was probably distracted while driving by taking a cellphone photo of his giant member -- and I don't mean his ego!

Not the first time he's lost control and busted something up. But will the Porsche come back to him?

After looking at picture #37 it looks like Chris is going to be forking over some big bucks to pay for a new wall for some homeowner.

I bet his car insurance rates will go sky high too. He just got a speeding ticket in Beverly Hills last week. He might have enough points on his driving record that they'll suspend it.

I bet his attorney Mark Geragos is making a fortune in fees off of Chris Brown's screwups ... just like Lindsay's attorney has (if Lindsay ever pays her debts).

It is so obvious from the pictures that Chris was speeding through that alley,thank God he hit a wall and not a person. He claims he was on his way to a benefit. Who dresses like that to abenefit? People dont bring a change of clothes in order to change when they get there.Its sad to say but from the time he was aressted for beating Rihanna he seems to be like a ticking time bomb ready to explode.It is obvious he has anger issues.
