Chris Brown

Hit-and-Run Probe

Prison On the Line

EXCLUSIVE

0524_chris-brown_tmzBIG TROUBLE for Chris Brown -- TMZ has learned the LAPD is investigating the singer, and it could trigger a probation violation that could land him in prison.

What could have been a simple fender bender earlier this week is now a full-blown hit-and-run investigation ... after Chris Brown allegedly refused to give the driver he rear-ended his driver's license #.  We're told he also gave the woman incorrect insurance info.

What's more ... we're now told Chris copped an attitude when the woman pressed him for his ID, before refusing to ante up his DL.




Brown is on probation for the Rihanna beating, and one of the conditions is that he obey all laws.  If there's probable cause to believe he broke the law by leaving the scene without fully disclosing information required by law, his probation could be violated and Chris could go to prison for up to 4 years.

We're told LAPD would like to chit chat with Chris ... STAT.  Calls to Chris' camp weren't returned.

Harvey you also said Chris Brown was going to Prison for Covering up his Community Service in Virginia. I am beginning to think Harvey gets all his Legal Advice from Max.

He will find a way out of it. There seems to be a different set of laws for celebs. Time after time they walk.

I wish that piece of garbage would be held accountable by the LAPD for his crimes. But just like Lohan, he'll get away with this. Just like everything else.

Hahaha. Yah right. Celebrity's rarely go to jail unless they avoid paying taxes or get caught with an illegal gun.

When your first instinct is to lie, that speaks loudly to your character. It would have been so easy to give insurance info. If someone hit his car, wouldn't he want it covered by them? Jeez, why act like a jerk when you rear end someone? Just be a man. Also, stay off your cell when driving, seriously.
