Chris Brown Lashes Out At Hit And Run Charge
Going so far as to post an image of the alleged hit-and-run victim's bumper and license plate as his profile picture (which he has since updated to a photo of the driver taking a photo of her bumper), Brown decried the driver of the other car as looking for a "payday," calling the charges "ridiculous."
He began a series of tweets with, " 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" and followed up with " I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info. She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene."
He then added, " She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures." and then added " My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!" Who that tweet was addressed to was not clear.
He concluded 8 minutes later with " 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 can confirm that the City Attorney's Office did file two misdemeanor charges against rapper Chris Brown that includes hit and run and driving without a valid license," said Frank Mateljan, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles City Attorney's Office, told Radio.com by phone today (June 25). "Charges stem from a minor traffic incident in May (May 21) of 2013. The maximum exposure on both of these charges total is one year in jail and is arraignment is set for July 15 in Van Nuys Superior Court." more on this story
