Chris Brown Hit With Charges Over Alleged Hit And Run
It’s been a rough week for Chris Brown. A day after being accused of throwing a woman to the ground inside a nightclub, the pop star was blindsided by the Los Angeles City Attorney with two charges related to a car accident that happened in Toluca Lake last month.
The incident in question first seemed pretty innocuous. Brown hit another woman’s vehicle while traveling at a very low rate of speed, and everyone involved go out and exchanged insurance information. Later, however, the woman claimed Brown refused to turn over his driver’s license and gave her fraudulent insurance information, both of which are illegal.
According to TMZ, the LA City Attorney has been reviewing the case for the past month, and recently, prosecutors decided there was enough evidence to formally charge Brown with leaving the scene of an accident without exchanging proper information and driving without a valid license. Ordinarily, those two charges wouldn’t amount to much more than a slap on the wrist, but given the musician’s probation problems, it could trigger a violation which would send him to jail.
Brown, of course, vehemently disagrees with the story that’s been put forward, and he took to his Twitter to lay out his point of view in pretty clear detail earlier today. You can take a look at his words below…
In case if you were wondering, 2 Corinthians 12:10 is the verse about delighting in hardships because strength comes from weakness. Clearly, if Brown really did turn over the correct insurance info, he has every reason to be beyond angry and pissed off right now, but I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see whether prosecutors have evidence that goes beyond the words of one woman who wasn’t overly pleased when her car was hit.
We’ll keep you updated.
