Chris Brown

Confusion Over Who Threw 1st Punch

After Police Report Typo

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown did not throw the first punch in the fight that landed him in jail -- at least that's what an initial draft of the police report stated, and even though it's since been corrected ... the mistake could work in Chris' favor.

Sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... the first version of the police report described Chris' bodyguard as the person who threw the punch that broke the alleged victim's nose -- and further states Chris only jumped into the fight afterward.

TMZ has reviewed the initial version of the report and we also obtained a revised copy ... which now states Chris landed the bone-crushing blow.

Chris' attorney could make hay of the mixup, and the correction. 

We're also told police videotaped Chris, the bodyguard, the alleged victim, and other witnesses describing who hit whom during the melee.  Law enforcement sources say they believe some of the people on tape may be shading the truth or outright lying, so the confusion may be a bonus for Chris.

Why are Cops so stupid these days. Maybe it's Krispy Kreme poisoning.

It doesn't matter if it's this incident that he gets in trouble for or the next one...we ALL know that there WILL be a 'next time' and it's only a matter of time before troglodyte Chris Brown goes to prison. Hopefully it's before he kills someone.

Guess he is lagging behind the other rappers and it is now time to get more street cred. and get his face into the press. In rap, bad press is good press.

this is dumb. immature guys fight all the time on the streets, in the clubs, at parties. most of the time, reports are not taken and charges are not filed. it was a fight. sh!t happens. unfortunately, because he is CB, people want money and want to bring him down just because. it's kind of sad. but CB does need to realize this and step back.

It's all a moot point anyways.


He'll plead not guilty then either walk or settle out of court. At that point it all comes down to lawyers. And when you walk in to court with a lawyer that comes from a reputable firm and who knows the judge and is respected by that judge, well you all know how that will end up.


It's a drag but that's how it seems to be going nowadays. What I would like to see though is that these numb nuts get criminal records. This would prevent them from crossing borders and seriously limit their entitiledness and have an effect on their bottom line.
