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.

Here we go again! ANOTHER Lindsay Lohan! He won't go to jail for 4 MINUTES, let alone 4 years! What a joke that TMZ even prints this! Has there EVER been a Hollywood type like these jerks that EVER went to jail for ANY length of time after getting in trouble time after time after time? I don't think you can find very many, if ANY!

I hope he violated his probation. The jack *** needs to go to jail. I'm tired of all these famous people getting away with murder. Time to make them pay like everyone else and throw them in jail.

This better be a probation violation.
Lindsay got violated just for new charges and Chris is a felon.

Putting him in prison for about 4 years may actually save that dumb twit he reconciled with from the next beating. Guys like him don't change, they just keep on making excuses for their behavior.

I think this guy is a woman abuser and acts like a thug....however, he many have a point here. Lots of people take advantage of celebrities. His reputation may have something to do with this.

As much as I despise this ass clown, he has a valid point.It isn't a hit and run if he didn't run.
