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 like to wake up some morning and read where this POS and a few others went over a cliff in a burning bus. That would make my day.

You can clearly see that Chris got out of the car and talked to the woman. How is that "hit and run"? You can't even see any damage on either car in the video or the picture he posted.

i hope his attorney goes after this grandstanding city attorney. this **** isn't right. i'm sorry. that is not hit and run- and california is too broke to be wasting money on these trumped up charges where the atty is just trying to get free campaign/face time. all this time and effort spent on someone who pulled over and admits the hit, and was snapped in the process of exchanging information. meanwhile, murderers and rapists run free. stop wasting time on this insignificant ****! i'm not black, but as far as i'm concerned, this is racist targeting. bull-****. i know i'll be villified by the racists on this comment board, but i don't care. anyone with a clear head and any sense of the criminal system in cali knows it's bull****.

LOL NO one does time for any crime that has a sentence of 6 months. With the new alignment law he's got nothing to worry. Plus remember if it was a big deal the LA county DA would of had it first not the city attorney. SUCH A JOKE!!! White girl wanted to get paid and she didn't get her **** did so now she's crying foul LOL

W-hite girl trying to get paid in that old a-ss mercedes, trying to keep up with the Joneses in LA. She saw Chris Brown on his license, put 2 and 2 together, and thought PAYDAY. Even Brian Loncar cannot help her. Gold diggers come in all colors.

Chris Brown haters would fold if they received even a fraction of the hate that is directed toward him.
