Chris Brown Investigated For Assault

Chris Brown Investigated For Assault

Chris Brown is being investigated by the LAPD for an alleged assault on a female.

“The identity of the victim will not be released,” Officer April Harding tells People. “Any victim who’s involved in a domestic violence incident is entitled to confidentiality.”

Around 12:30 a.m. on Sunday, Chris and an unnamed woman were arguing inside of a vehicle when suddenly things turned violent. According to TMZ, the woman suffered visible injuries and identified Chris as her attacker.

The LAPD say they received a 911 call reporting the disturbance. “If police locate Brown, yes, he’s subject to arrest,” Officer Harding added.

Earlier Saturday night, Chris and girlfriend Rihanna were at the Clive Davis pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills. Rihanna‘s rep says, “Rihanna is well. Thank you for concern and support.”

On Sunday afternoon, one JJ reader had this report about the disturbance.

Both Chris and Rihanna were supposed to hit the red carpet and perform at the Grammys. Both will not be in attendance tonight. A Grammy rep says Rihanna‘s face is slightly bruised and adds, “We have just been informed that Rihanna will not be attending tonight’s 51st Annual Grammy Awards. We’re sorry she is unable to join us this evening.”

UPDATE: Chris Brown has turned himself into the cops.

Rihanna was in a car accident SHE WAS NOT BEAT UP BY ANYONE you gossiping mother fuckers

I’m glad she called the cops. I don’t follow those two that much, but I never would peg him for an abuser. It just goes to show you can never tell.

holy crap, if this is true I hope she DUMPS HIS ASS ASAP

Hmmm…I don’t think Chris would beat up a woman? I member watching him on Tyra when he was talking about his mom going through that and how f’d up that was

They were both said to be in a “car accident” but really, you know that isn’t the real story.

Rihanna’s PR team are covering up her bruised face with a car accident story. Clever! Let’s see, Rihanna’s face is messed up during the same time Chris Brown might face battery charges from an unidentified woman. Coincidence? I don’t think so!

That is messed up! I hope they lock him up! That is just WRONG.

Maybe they beat up each other but since Chris is stronger she overwhelm her. Could be the effect of drugs & booze at the same time.

I am shocked and disgusted!!! You can tell by his face here that he doesn’t look like him self!!!

look people this isn’t the first time this has happened Chris has hit Rihanna before & if she doesn’t dump him he will do it again

#56 – unfortunately, that is where most abusers learn it … see it … when they were young themselves at home … alot of them end up being abusers themselves …

i know there is nothing definite on chris brown yet … but just a general fact on abusers.. they themselves oftentimes come from households of abuse

how do you know she’s been hit before, carlos #64

y would he do this if his mother had a past with domestic violence with her boyfiend. plus #28 he probably knew he would be the blame because he is a black male celebrity

Rihanna needs to dump Chris Brown asap, if she doesn’t he’ll do it again.

My god, it’s so ******* disgusting how fans of someone will immediately disregard anything negative they may have done, but it’s FAR WORSE that they would assume that a woman would lie about being abused for attention. Do you not know the statistics on domestic abuse in this country? How many cases go unreported out of fear? Everytime you write a woman off like that, you’re legitimizing an attack. It’s fair to say you’ll reserve judgment against an accused attacker until their are more facts, but to pass judgment against someone who may have been beaten by someone she loves… that’s just abhorrent.

wow. some of you guys need to stop jumping to conclusions!
we don’t even know the WHOLE story yet.

i hope that this is not what it seems like… i won’t make any assumptions and will be praying for both of them.

His mom used to get beat by her BF. I guess that’s where he learned in from. :(

Pity he didn’t smoke that joint – might have chilled him out!

#70- its pretty obvious though. i mean this “unidentified woman”?? come on, who else would it be! if it was anyone else but rihanna, they would be identified. besides why would rihanna cancel her performance if she wasn’t somehow involved?
