So late last night, Chris turned himself into the LAPD where he was held arrested and booked for 1 Count(s) of Domestic Abuse which is a Felony. His bail was posted at $50,000.00 he paid it, was released and a court date has been issued. The LAPD confirmed that the victim was not some "female friend" it was actually his girlfriend Rihanna. X17 has been up on their game with the exclusives, check out what they had to say:
Chris Brown was JUST RELEASED from the police station at 8:45 pm PT. He was let go on $50,000 bail and was accompanied by his attorney Mark Geragos. Despite our earlier report that Chris Brown had been released from the Wilshire Division of the LAPD, it appears R&B star Chris Brown was still in custody as an investigation is ongoing in allegations of domestic violence felony battery stemming from an incident early this morning. Just after midnight today, an unnamed woman called 911, after she and Brown fought in their car and then on the side of the road in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Booking reports from the LAPD show Brown was booked at 6:30 PM and sources say he is actually still in custody.
There's so many major outlets reporting on this incident, most of them seem neutral as they all have similar stories and reports. I really really hope that all is well with Rihanna. Do you guys believe that this is the end of Chris' career? I really wanna know what led him this far. I remember of him speaking of how he would never hit a female, because he lived through his mom being beaten by his father.
Confirmation that the victim is Rihanna:
The LAPD just named Rihanna the victim in the Chris Brown assault case. The couple was seen getting into a car together late last night. They got into an argument on North June Street, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement. Chris Brown stopped the car, the two got out, and the argument escalated, according to police. A witness called 911 and Chris left the scene before LAPD arrived. Brown turned himself into the Sheriffs Department at 6:30PM EST accompanied by his attorney Mark Geragos and Geragos’ investigator, Scott Ross. He is currently being held on $50,000 bail. “He turned himself in around 7 p.m. to one of our stations and is being interviewed by detectives now,” Officer Karen Smith confirmed to People. The pair drove into a parking lot behind the police station on Venice Boulevard just east of La Brea Avenue in a black Cadillac Escalade. They entered through a back door where a posted sign read “authorized personnel only.” Police are expected to release a statement later this evening. Both Brown and Rihanna canceled their performances at tonight’s Grammy Awards. According to the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department, Chris made bail and was released at 8:35PM. He is due in court on March 5.
