Chris Brown Threatens Retirement After Less Than An Hour in Jail

(Radio.com) According to MTV News, Chris Brown turned himself in yesterday (August 5) for the hit-and-run case. Within an hour, he was booked and released. He also took to twitter to hint that he may be retiring from music.

In June, Chris Brown was formally charged by the Los Angeles City Attorney for a hit-and-run and driving without a license stemming from a traffic incident this past May. He has since decided to turn himself in for the charge, according to reports.

"Brown arrived at the Van Nuys jail at 2:40 p.m. and was booked two minutes later and then released at 3:22 p.m. with no bail," records from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department report.

His time in jail was so short that many including the sheriff's department didn't even know about it. Upon contacting the Office for the City Attorney of Los Angeles, spokesperson Frank Mateljan knew nothing of Brown's arrest.

Chris Brown is having a difficult year and as he's done in the past, has taken to Twitter to voice his gripes. On Tuesday he tweeted, "Don't worry mainstream America.After this X album, it'll probably be my last album." That wasn't his only message
