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 will have more time to devote to his "lack luster autotuned music"
Chris Brown without auto tune is like the Kardashians without photoshop...

I hope that woman can sleep at night knowing she could have helped put him in Prison where he belongs, but she took money !!

They can claim she did not want any money, but you know she was paid off along with that idiot doormat that thinks she is his GF !

I find it funny that the very same people that are on here calling CB a thug are the people who overlook the many crimes of Lindsey Lohan and Charlie Sheen among others.... I wonder Why?
