Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that Chris Brown is being investigated by the LAPD in an alleged assault on a female.
Cops have yet to release the name of the female in question. A traffic incident occurred around 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles. Earlier in the evening, Brown and Rihanna were all smiles while attending Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy bash together.
In a statement, police say Brown and his companion “became involved in an argument. After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
Grammy officials have announced that Brown and Rihanna will not perform on the show tonight either– as scheduled — nor walk the red carpet for the event.
Teen heartthrob and double Grammy nominee Chris Brown was talking with detectives Sunday night about an alleged felony assault on an unidentified woman the night before. Police records showed he was being held on $50,000 bail.
Sources say the unnamed female in the complaint is superstar Rihanna.
According to a Los Angeles Police Department report, officers arrived on the scene after receiving a 911 call reporting a disturbance. A woman with visible injuries identified Chris Brown as her attacker. The victim said they were arguing in the car, which escalated when they stopped.
Brown had already left the scene when authorities arrived.
Insiders confirm that some kind of incident took place in Hancock Park last night after the couple left the pre-Grammy gala at the Beverly Hilton. Same insiders say they are shocked and that “Chris is a good kid, well brought up.”
According to law enforcement records, Brown, 19, was taken into custody at 6:30 p.m. and was officially booked at 7:41 p.m. for making criminal threats.
Brown posted $50,000 bail and was released. According to the arrest report he is due in court on March 5th.
