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."

He did nothing wrong, they just want to see this young man down. How the hell is it a hit and run when he stayed at the secen, and exchanged info. These ppl just want to see a black man down. I pray to God for Chris Brown it's time to leave this young man alone.

CIVIL COMPROMISE not involving money? Can we interpret that as he won't go through with his threats against her & she agrees not to bring charges against him?

He is a disgusting thug and so is Geragos. This is the only case he's won. They both think they are God's gift to women for no good reason. The justice system disgusts me. Wonder how much Brown paid the victim to go away and Geragos calls that a win?

He left the scene of an accident without giving his D/L information, while he was on probation. So he WAS being persecuted for what he did, and not for who he is. Stupid lawyer.

Hopefully next time he'll run in to George Zimmerman's car and we won't have to hear about this retarded woman-beater any longer.
