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 be mad if photographers WERE'NT following him. Stop, pose for the camera, and move on.

Looks like another thing to add to his lack of accomplishments....Grow talent...stop beating women...stop brawling in public...learn to control his temper like a grown up.. take responsibility for his actions.and now learn how to drive a high performance car on public roads...

What does anyone mean by "I was being chased by photographers?" Followed, yes, even hounded, but you aren't being "chased." It's not a race or contest.

You have no right to drive recklessly to "get away" from other cars unless you're driving directly to the police station because your life is in immediate danger. Drive normally ya jackasses and live to see another day.

At least five policemen to handle a fender bender? I thought they were supposed to be looking for a murderous rogue cop.

Friend to Chris Brown on getting back with Rihanna: "Chris, so you hittin' that again?" "Yeah, but now I know to hit her in places where she can cover her bruises." "Ummm, that's not what I meant Chris but at least you're learning how to attack her so you don't get in trouble."

Looks to me like he was trying to do a U turn in that alley.

And of course everyone knows that the paparazzi would NEVER lie. Since they're the ones with the cameras, show us the proof.

Looks pretty obvious to me. CB tooling down alley with the other woman in his car...sees paps at end of alley...attempts a U turn and hits the wall. Whose fault is that?

This is just another instance of Chris Brown lying. Check his cellphone records, he was probably on his phone and got distracted. This car is NOT TOTALLED. It isd a rear engine prosche and these front end bumps are repaired everyday. this lying woman beatimng s***bag, should be arrested fro lying to cops. If it is a cvrime for Lindse4y Loahn why isn't it for this low life LOSER. If he was being chased by the Paps why isn't there a call to 911. If he says he was being chased and the police believe the paps, then CB lied to police a

I'm not a supporter of Chris Brown's behavior but this has to be said. TMZ is racist as hell.Charlie Sheen Assaulted several women put a knife to his WIFES throat and he was hailed on this site everyone thought it was funny was his every move scrutinized? No. I'm calling bull**** on these constant anti Chris post. Then the whole situation with Justin Beiber instead of holding him responsible for his own actions people wanted to blame it on the big bad black kids leading him down the wrong path TMZ go **** yourselves.
