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.

    You know what’s really sad?

    That it is 2009 and women are still having to make up things like car accidents when they are victims of abuse.

    This is the first time I’ve heard of their abusive situation and I hope that if it is the case that Rhianna gets out and he gets help to break the cycle.

    It’s even more sad if you think of the extreme end of the domestic abuse situation with Jennifer Hudson’s family.

    It’s time for the music industry to step up and step out of the shadows of domestic abuse and call this situation what it is, f*cked up! The fact that this happened on the biggest night in music can really draw attention to the abuse that happens daily.

    It wouldn’t be domestic violence if the victim wasn’t his girlfriend. It would be called assault, not domestic violence. Just sayin.

    Agree #79 – the victim had to be his girlfriend or a family member to be classified as domestic abuse and not simply assault. If it was a random female that was accusing him of this, she might still not be named for confidentiality purposes, but it would not be classified as domestic violence by the police.

    Violence and abuse affect all kinds of people every day. It doesn’t matter what race or culture you come from, how much money you have, how old you are, or if you have a disability.

    Violence does not discriminate.

    Abuse can be physical, mental, and emotional.

    Violence against women in any form is a crime, whether the abuser is a family member; someone you date; a current or past spouse, boyfriend, or girlfriend; an acquaintance; or a stranger…..

    I read “between the lines”…the Rihanna’s face was bruised?

    Chris Brown…you’re a !@#$#@%!

    Stop stereotyping. All races have spouse beaters who are filled with rage from their childhood. What you said was as bad as what Chris Brown did. Because stereotyping is violence against a whole group of people.

    Don’t know all the facts but a sad situation for two gifted artists. Folks should think and calm down. A lot at stake besides pride, such as family and careers.

    This is really sad, I hope she is okay. He just flushed his entire career down the toilet.

    Jayne Says:

    Chris is probably with his family making up stories to say how it happened – little woman beater. He said on a Tyra Banks show sometime long ago that he used to pee the bed and it was because of the domestic violence in his home and he was so scared he would stay in his room and not go to the bathroom so he would pee the bed. When she asked him if he didn’t tell his sister, he said she was scared too. I am saying this to mean that Chris is doing what he is familiar with – it is a learned behaviour.

    His mother’s man or husband used to beat up on her – now he is doing the same thing – he should know once the police is involved he is in trouble no matter how much money he has – now his career might be questionable.

    all of you guys are jumping to conclusions as if you really know what’s going on. we are only given half of the information that might not even be true. im not saying that Chris is innocent or not but it’s not our business to say we saw something of ‘my friends cousin’s neighbor’s sister saw it’.

    XOXo Says:

    Well that’s stupid how are they gonna cover this up. Obviously Rihanna was the victim, or else she would;ve showed up at the Grammy’s. And who else was CB with that night besides Rihanna! If it is her, she needs to step up and admit it not cover it up for his sake. Don’t be stupid girl!

    Cheri Says:

    At the end of the day these people are human beings just like us. And a man does not hit a woman unless he has an abusive record withuot being provoked.???? Does Chris have an abusive record no… Something had to have trigured this altercation

    #19 KIM: you are a dumbass! I’m sure that u know Chris Brown so well. . . Its an image he presents to the public, like all celebrities. We don’t know all the facts except that he is being investigated for an assault. The cops wouldn’t be chasing him down if there was no evidence. Saying that the woman faked it is repulsive. You’re a disgusting person for making that ignorant comment.

    They needed to give eachother some space. Let’s see as it unravels.

    what a shame….we all need to learn to control our tempers and walk away….women can’t hit a man not expecting them to defend themselves and men should not ever hit a woman otherwise. It’s just a messy situation. Chris better do some hard praying bcause this is NOT a good look!

    qwerty Says:

    Either way, Rihanna needs to break things off because either A) Chris seriously abused her to the point where law enforcement had to be called in or B) He was in a car with another woman even though he is dating her.

    Shame on you Chris!!!

    CHERI- Whatever the trigger, he has no right to put his hands on anyone. R u serious? I guess when ur man beats the **** out of you, you must have deserved it for provoking him?Ur an ignorant ****** using this line of thinking. Grow a brain and some self respect as a woman.

    Ramonhall Says:

    He’s messed up really bad now. At 19 years old???? Thats just plain stupid. He shouldn’t have been out with Rihanna in the first place. I could see a temper in him when he attacked that camera man. Chris Brown isn’t the sweet guy that everyone thinks he is..and now we all know it! Thats why I am a fan of Corbin Bleu because he would never do anything that stupid!!!
