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."

I don't understand why white people hate black people. He is doing his time, on probation, etc.., changing for the better, maturing along the way. Its been 5 years. I know why Harvey can't stand Chris-because Chris said something was gay AF several years ago, and his panties are still twisted in a bunch.

Chris Brown is a good kid who has been vilified to the point of exhaustion. I think for awhile he believed he was bad because of it. That's a totally normal course of behavior for a young person. When you dog on young people they rebel. Chris Brown needs to go away for a bit and work on that golden voice he had. He's got plenty of time. Go make a credible record and come back grown!
