Chris Brown Hit and Run Costs Him His Probation
Chris Brown is at it again, this time having his probation revoked and possibly facing jail time after a hit and run. Not only that, he did not complete his community labor after for his 2009 conviction of attacking then-girlfriend Rihanna. The trial to see if he goes to jail will be on August 16.
The hit and run happened when he rear-ended a Range Rover in Los Angeles, and then “went ballistic” at the driver, screaming to her “You are a Bitch!” and saying, “Who do you think you are, bitch? Do you think if you driving Mercedes you got money, bitch? Do you think I am just a black nigger? I got more money than you beech!” a peculiar conversation to have after rear-ending a complete stranger. He also refused to give insurance information or drivers license, so she decided to take his picture to be able to identify him, at which point he screamed at her and tried to grab the camera. His now-girlfriend Karreuche Tran, screamed “Don’t touch her, don’t touch her.”
“I was so shocked, that I was speechless,” said Olga Gure, the woman whose car was hit. “Just a moment ago he was a nice guy. After screaming some insulting nonsense for a while longer, he slammed a door and drove away fast and noisy.”
Her bumper was damaged at $868, but no further repairs were needed.
Chris, meanwhile, might have to serve jail time for his five-year sentence for attacking Rihanna, and as usually he is tweeting his innocence loudly:
“It’s not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars).This is really ridiculous”
“I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info. She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene.”
“She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures.”
“My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!”
“My profile pic is the pic I took of the persons car after “the hit and run”. NO damage. Just a dirty car. once again, I gotta clear my name”
“I work my ass off to provide for my entire family. I’ve made mistakes in the past and have worked hard to be a better person. “
“19-24 years of age. I don’t have all the answers and you can’t show me a person that age who has it figured out. We live and grow. Let me live”
Despite accusing the woman of seeking a “payday” for being hit by somebody she did not at all recognize, her lawyer has said “that his client did not want to press charges” as the damage was “negligible.”
It was, nevertheless, a hit and run, and Brown could also be charged with driving without a license.
