Chris Brown

Charged with


6/25/2013 10:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



11:09 AM PT
-- 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.

You white people kill me with your racist justice system and you internet courage! Clearly there was no damage and no accident and no hit and run from the video. But of course you will try to use your AmeriKlan Justice system to try and put Chris back into your system to Swindle money from his trust account again! Go ****in kill your self or better yet let the SUN of God come a little closer and finish your crakka asses off! I can't wait until that DAY! You have nothing but hatred and war in your hearts! You don't belong on Mother Earth anymore! Come on Global Warming do your job.

Wow! I'm sure he's really scared now. He's probably already on a flight to Ecuador. What? Hell hasn't frozen over? Oh, then he's fine; no worries.

Are we sure he wasn't raised by Dina Lohan? Same BS excuses, it's never his fault, everyone is out to get him, blah blah blah.... Yep, sounds the same to me.

He'll never see any consequences, but that he is idiot enough to believe all you have to do is get out of the car, and then give false info, and you cannot be accused of hit and run, really shows his lack of brain-cells.

Hit and Run? There were photos of him (with his girlfriend) stepping outside the car and meeting with the woman whom he had hit. They took photos of the damage. The woman was with them making light of the situation. I know we all hate Chris, but this is absurd. This woman just wants money from him.

TMZ always notes the WORST CASE SCENARIO. Most people aren't sentenced to full terms and even if they are with overcrowding they only serve a portion.
It does not matter whether or not there was damage. What makes this a hit and run is the fact that he provided false info and then left the scene.
For those who are crying racial bias, do you really think that Justin Bieber would not have been charged with the same crime given the same facts?

I hope he goes to jail-- even for an hour!!
I was reading about if you were in prison and travelling. Wouldn't he have a record for being in prison and that prevent him from travelling to other countries??? It can prevent him from coming to Canada!

It's neeeever your fault, is it Chris? This guy could decapitate a bunny on YouTube and still find a way to make himself the victim.

I love all of you people with the pitchforks out cheering for jail time, when we obviously see NO "hit and run" in this video. I see 2 people exchanging details. Our legal system is a joke.
