Chris Brown

D.A. Could File Charges

In Frank Ocean Fight

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown is under criminal battery investigation ... TMZ has learned.

Remember that brawl between Chris and Frank Ocean last January outside a recording studio?  Law enforcement told us shortly after the incident the case was closed, but we found out that's not the case.

We've learned the L.A. County D.A.'s Office has an active file and is deciding whether to prosecute Brown for battery.

It's interesting ... because Ocean never formally pressed charges.  Nonetheless ... the case is under review.

It's possible the Brown/Ocean incident could come up today at Brown's probation review hearing.  Brown is supposed to be in court, and the judge could raise the issue because Chris was ordered to obey all laws.

BTW ... Brown is also being investigated for an alleged hit-and-run.

Why does it take so long for the DA's office to file charges?
It's Chris Brown, girl friend beater, should have been charged the next day.

According to reports, Frank Ocean instigated the fight.

So why charge Chris Brown. Seems like a frivolous case for Prosecutors who want to be bigshots by involving celebrities.

It's been one bad thing after another that he some how always manages to slip out of. Maybe a little jail time would do him good !

Nothing will happen.
TMZ is great at making it seem like the biggest douche celebrities are going to be in HUGE trouble with the law only nothing ever ends up happening to them. The legal system, especially in Southern California, is one big joke when it comes to celebrities.. even POS woman beaters like Brown.

CB is a self-entitled, angry, gay black punk who thinks laws don't apply to him. I think he is a pajnsy who basically picks on people when his bidy guards are around, but otherwise is a complete pu$$y. He is a low life complete douch#bag.

That's TMZ, when there is nothing happening on the home front, they dig up old, irrelevant stuff. They gotta find some way to keep the blog going.
