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.

I'm the last guy to defend this idiot. As a matter of fact, I'd love to see him fry sooner than later. But I was involved in a collision at the corner of LaBrea and Hollywood Bl a couple of years back and a LAPD officer was standing about 50 yards from the incident. I approached the officer and asked for his assistance, and his words to me were, "What am I supposed to do? Just exchange insurance information and let your insurance companies handle it."

Well it is a felony hit and run if you are giving bogus information. He has hers, so if she stalks him or something he can hold her accountable. I know what he was thinking that she was going to share his info. Furthermore he could have had his lawyer find her and make her sign a confidentiality agreement that she won't share his info with anyone. Chris dodged jail once he needs a few days. He is smelling himself a little too much.

As much as people are saying he will get away with it because he's a celeb.... Get away with what exactly ? Did the other persons care have much if any damage ? NO. Did he stop and exchange info ? Yes? So where exactly does hit and run come into this ? It didn't look like there was much of a hit to start with but even if there was a hit he certainly didn't run because he stopped and exchanged info.

If I am not mistaken, didn't he posted a picture of her car with her license plate showing on Twitter? I saw it an hour or so ago, either on ROL or Perez.

Chris Brown is a stupd, infantile, moron. Who drives without a license and proof of insurance? Is he REALLY that stupid? Must be. Guys like this are so full of themselves. All about themselves. Everyone is out to get them... yet they don't keep a clean 'house'... and consistently think themselves above the law.

I agree with Chris..........Hit and Run is only valid when someone doesn't stop after hitting another vehicle.

The rules changes when Blacks are involved in anything and for some reason,many racist Whites are obsessed with Chris Brown going to prison because you think he owes your sorry azzes something....

There is something about Whites that screams evil as it pertain to Blacks.You get a special GLEE at Blacks suffering and this is something that Blacks really need to REALIZE!
