UPDATE

-- Chris just tweeted in response to the charges, writing, "It's not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars). This is really ridiculous." He also just changed his profile picture to the girl's car he allegedly hit.

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'd care more if I thought they would actually do something about this litte a-hole. Unfortunately, he will be allowed to skate on this charge with a slap on the hand. Must be nice to be a rich criminal.

Chris Brown + jail time = 0. This is such a joke. The entitled rich celebrities NEVER pay for their crimes. They have the CORRUPT justice system to ensure that. Cops, judges, and prosecuters are all on the take!

I agree with Chris Brown in this one, it's not a hit and run if you get out of the car and exchange information. In the other incident, I too would reluctant to give my driver's license info to a total stranger, unless the police is taking the information. I wish Chris good luck on this one.

LOL They must not have seen all the pictures on TMZ or X17. And BTW for celebrities they can give insurance info that lists their agents address/phone # it's part of the stalking law :)
I bet the DA will look real fine wearing that red face in court.

Yes, they all need some jail time to help them come back to reality. It's a job, not a life style, everyone must obey the Laws of the Land.......
