Chris Brown was allegedly involved in a hit-and-run last week, which could spell big trouble for the controversial singer due to the terms of his probation for beating Rihanna. (Let that sink in a moment; probation for beating a woman. Yes, it’s just as infuriating now as it was then, at least for most of us; not for Amanda Bynes, though! More on that below.)
The LAPD is currently investigating claims made by the other driver, a woman who was reportedly rear-ended in the incident, that although Brown stopped to assess the situation and any damages, he committed a hit-and-run by refusing to provide his information to her.
Chris Brown Hit-And-Run Case Could Land Singer in Prison for Years
According to reports from TMZ, the woman tried to get Chris Brown to show her his driver’s license and let her take down the information but the singer refused. Brown allegedly gave false insurance information, too, which we’re pretty sure is frowned upon in California and everywhere else. (Then again, we thought beating women was frowned upon, too, but that didn’t stop him then. It also didn’t stop Amanda Bynes from being completely disgusting this weekend, tweeting Rihanna that Chris Brown beat her because she wasn’t “pretty enough”, whatever the hell that means. Once again, Amanda: please get some help. Fast.)
Known for being incredibly hot-headed and quick to blow up at people, Brown reportedly “copped an attitude” with the woman as she attempted to collect the legally-required evidence, including his license number and insurance information. The TMZ report includes video of the moments after the accident, with Brown still on the scene but appearing to act somewhat evasive. No clear audio can be heard due to it having been a windy day and the person filming not being close enough to Brown and the driver of the other car.

Brown is on active probation with Los Angeles County courts for brutally attacking then-girlfriend and singer Rihanna in 2009. If he is found to have broken any laws, such as, oh, that one about not leaving the scene of an accident without at least exchanging names, license numbers and valid insurance documentation, he could face up to four years in a California state prison.
Chris Brown Hit-And-Run Charge Would Violate Probation Terms
Due to overcrowding, Brown would not likely serve the full four years, but would almost definitely do significant time. Considering Brown has gotten away with verbally accosting people for years, is said to have shattered a window at ABC a while back by throwing a chair through it in a fit of rage, and is 100% guilty of beating a woman bloody and bruised after threatening her life, it would be somehow satisfying that a simple fender-bender could be what finally teaches him his lesson.
(Kind of like how Ted Bundy was caught because of a parking ticket. Sometimes, it’s the little things in life you have to be grateful for.)
