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.

I remember when he complained that the valet overcharged him by asking for a $10.00 fee. He is rich and complained about a $10.00 parking fee. What an as-hole!!! Now that he goes to jail, let Bubba park his big d-ck up his ass for free. Don't forget to wear sexy underwear for Bubba!! LMAO

Good. Put the punk in jail finally so I don't have to hear about his sh-tty attitude anymore. It will give the neighbors a break too.

In his defense, he did say that he never meant to hit the car and that he had mistaken it for Rhianna's face.

Please - show of hands, anyone think CB will do anything more than pay a fine over this? High end lawyers for low behavin' clients. One day, CB is gonna pull his act w/ the wrong dude - and his ass will be fertilizer. Thug lite, no real talent, too much $.

Paula Deen losing a career for using a racial slur and yet he still has a recording contract after the crap he's pulled? I'm certainly not condoning paula's actions in any way but rather pointing out the double standards of America.

Violence is clearly the fabric of his being. Rihanna, take note, in case you´re ever get tempted to take him in again.
