Chris Brown
has been charged with criminal hit-and-run ... TMZ has learned. 

We've learned the L.A. City Attorney has filed 2 criminal charges against Brown, in connection with a minor accident last month where Chris rear-ended a Mercedes and allegedly refused to fork over his driver's license number and gave bogus insurance info and then left the scene.

The City Attorney has charged Chris with hit-and-run -- for leaving the scene without exchanging proper information.  He's also been charged with the crime of driving without a valid license.  The crimes are punishable by a maximum of 6 months in jail for each offense.

We've also learned the City Attorney will refer the matter to the L.A. County D.A. for a possible probation violation in the Rihanna beating case.  Worst case scenario -- if the judge in that case concludes Chris broke the law and thereby violated his probation, he could be sentenced to prison for 4 years.

Chris will continue to act like a fool and break the law because he feels above the law and as long as he keeps getting away with crap I guess he is above the law. SMH, celebrities get away with too much.

i don't like chris brown and think he should've went to jail for beating a woman.But i see him exchanging info with the woman in this video,doesn't really appear to be any damage to the cars.How is this a hit and run?!Yes he should be in jail,but not for something he didn't do.Or maybe this is karma's way of repaying him.Who knows.
