It was reported yesterday that Chris Brown and Rihanna were involved in an alleged confrontation hours before the curtain went up at the Grammys. Where they were due to perform at, but both cancelled about two hours before the start of the show.
Chris Brown was driven yesterday to a LA police station by a high-priced lawyer where he turned himself in and was charged. Chris, who was accompanied to the police station by attorney-at-law Mark Geragos, was arrested on a charge of "criminal threat" that could be elevated to domestic dispute, or more by the Los Angeles District Attorney before his next court appearance on March 5. He posted US$50 000 bail and was released.
"The exact charge was criminal threats and it is going to be investigated as a criminal threats investigation," said Police Sergeant Bridget Pickett, who spoke to reporters at the Wilshire Division Police Station, where Brown was booked. "There may be domestic violence charges added later, but that will be up to the district attorney’s office," he told The Associated Press.
The incident allegedly occurred along a quiet street around 12:30 a.m. Eastern Caribbean time on Sunday. Chris was reportedly driving a rented Lamborghini vehicle along North June Street near Hancock Park, when the incident occurred. Chris & Rihanna were seen together Saturday night at a pre-Grammys dinner at the Beverly Hills Hilton.
The police statement said Brown and a woman were in a vehicle near Hollywood’s Hancock Park when "they became involved in an argument". "After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated," police said.
After receiving a 911 call at about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, officers found the woman at the scene of the alleged fight, but Chris had left, the department said.
A message was released to Barbados, delivered by a close friend, comes one day after her Chris Brown was charged with a felony in connection with a domestic violence incident. Her grandmother, Clara Brathwaite, said yesterday: "I don’t want people to worry. Rihanna is fine and she is doing well." She also denied claims that Rihanna had a broken nose.
