Chris Brown

Confusion Over Who Threw 1st Punch

After Police Report Typo

10/28/2013 8:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1027_chris_brown_tmz_2
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.

Yeah, of course he's going to get off. See, most logical people though in general don't get involved in fights, despite if they want street cred or not. I don't care if you're an MMA blackbelt or a 2-strike Cali resident, if you have a bullseye on your back, you should be smart enough to use common sense to stay out of situations. In what reality do we live in where 'He joined the fight later' cuts it? Dude needs a wake-up call, whether it be doing some time behind bars or getting his head smashed in, because he's going to continue running around 'above the law' until that happens. He's a ticking time bomb and should be taking all steps he can to stay out of conflict and not let people push his buttons. But he's not, he's playing the victim and wanting special treatment for how he literally fights back against his detractors. Time to grow up, homie

He's young. If he gets out of this it won't be long until he is back in trouble for something else. Prison is in Chris' future whether he likes it or not.

Never believed the alleged victim in the first place:

if your innocent, don't get arrested in wash dc after 12 noon on a friday. judges there work bankers hours (9 to 5 and no weekends) and you don't get to see a judge until monday afternoon. plan on rotting in the nasty dangerous jail for up to 72 hours. then because the judges never give you bail, you either get to stay in the jail, or get assigned to the $60... per year alternative detention unit. either way, you remain supervised/monitored under gov't supervison until your case resolved. worst court sytem and jail in the u.s.

The mistake could work in Chris' favor... (here is comes) --MORE-Law enforcement sources say they believe SOME of the people on tape may be shading the truth or outright lying (of course there's always people who lie in any cir***stance--never stopped to cops from filing charges in the past--except if they're name is Chris Brown), so the (so-called) confusion may be a bonus for Chris.(BINGO--THERE'S THE OUT)
Just give those worthless cops and DA in Chocolate City a backstage pass--and they will'll hook him up. They love freebees in DC.
