Chris Brown

Hit-and-Run Case DISMISSED!

Chris Brown's hit-and-run case was just dismissed, even though prosecutors argued Chris deserved to be punished and punished severely for his alleged vehicular misdeed.

Chris and the victim struck a civil compromise -- she didn't want any money because the damage was so minor and she wanted the case dismissed.  But the L.A. City Attorney objected, arguing to the judge this morning that Brown was very aggressive toward the victim after the accident -- calling her a "bitch." 

The City Attorney also argued that Brown was on felony probation and therefore his alleged misconduct of leaving the scene without anteing up a California driver's license was all the more serious.

The judge, however, didn't buy the City Attorney's argument and dismissed the case. 

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos tells TMZ, "The case never should have been filed in the first place.  It's unfortunate he was being prosecuted for who he is rather than what he's done."

Nobody expected him to be found guilty in L.A.--celebrity justice is alive and well. And Chris blames everything on everyone else anyway. I literally can't stand attorney Geragos any more--blaming this on who Chris is. What a load of crap.

They were trying to prosecute him for who he is. A douchebag. He tried to get his girlfriend de jour to be labeled the driver. Tried to have HER id submitted. Called the other driver a B**ch, and accused her of all kinds of crap. She has shown more class and grace than he has ever witnessed much less displayed. He has dared to play the persecuted victim, taking ZERO responsibility over and over again. Even a 15 year old with a learner's permit knows that you need a license within the state you are PRIMARILY living in. That would be the one he decorated his house to the horror of his neighbors, in graffiti, ignoring his HOA rules that everyone else who lives there complies to.

And the list goes on. And on. and On. I won't bother to go into what he's MOST infamous for..I think the whole planet knows it by heart.

One of these days, he will be prosecuted for who he is and justice will be served. Until he changes who he is? Then all the rest of the planet can do is light a friggin' candle Karma makes a heavier handed attempt at catching up with him.

This is such crap. Throw that piece of woman beating trash in jail. Another failing celebrity who still has some money gets away from getting what he deserves. He makes horrible music and doesn't do anything worth of being in the public eye. He isn't anything anymore and will never be again.

I guess threatening her & calling her b..... worked. Or did he pay her $$$$ so that he wouldn't have to go to jail. Hmmm will we ever know the truth?
