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.

a thug with money can always buy lies from people around him. Lies come cheap from all his stooges. He may skate again...but someday soon, he will go into a rage when camera's are clicking, then proof will be there. Either that or a silent bullet in the dark of night will take him out. One of those two things will happen, only question is when???

as one with a degree in investigative forensics....one of my classes had to do with report taking and they were VERY HARD on us writing correct reports........and here is a prime example why. in this case, it probably wont matter...but then again, a huge celebrity...it might.

That gay statement CB supposedly made didn't sound right - especially in the middle of a brawl. He knows he can't clench those tiny little Wilma Flintstones fists or flail those feminine arms until the end on 2014. He won't ever try that unless he has a fat bodyguard there ready to take the hit for it anyway.

Chris Brown has security staff for a reason.... so he doesn't have to get into fights if somebody is trying to do something they shouldn't with him. With him being on probation, the smartest thing he could do is allow his hired security to take care of those issues and not jeopardize his freedom. Those folks are being paid to keep him safe. The issue though is he's not smart or cool-headed enough to know to back off.

Chris Brown would be smart to figure out why trouble seems to follow him around. But I sincerely doubt he;s that smart.
