No commentary today really- just…disappointment. LOTS of disappointment. This police report description below essentially matches the gossip I’d heard, except, I heard that Rihanna/ “Robyn F.” hit him first. Not that that fact makes anything deserved, etc. Chris went to court yesterday, caught two felonies and is out on $50, 000 bail. Video from the court after the jump…Here’s the word from CNN:
“The argument that led to singer Chris Brown’s arrest on felony assault
charges began when his girlfriend found a text message on his cell phone
from “a woman who Brown had a previous sexual relationship with,” according
to a sworn police statement.
Authorities charged Brown on Thursday with felony counts of assault and
making criminal threats, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office
The charges are in connection with an alleged attack last month on “his
girlfriend,” the office said.
It identified the woman only as Robyn F., but sources close to the couple
have told CNN the alleged victim was singer Rihanna, whose full name is
Robyn Rihanna Fenty.
Brown was scheduled to appear in court later Thursday.
Rihanna, 21, was allegedly attacked by Brown on February 8 on a Los Angeles
street before the two were to perform at the Grammys.
Brown apologized for the incident last month.
“Words cannot begin to express how sorry and saddened I am over what
transpired,” the 19-year-old said in a statement released by his spokesman.
“I am seeking the counseling of my pastor, my mother and other loved ones
and I am committed, with God’s help, to emerging a better person.”
A search warrant used by police to obtain cell phone records related to the
case included the sworn statement by Los Angeles Police Detective DeShon
Andrews in which he detailed what allegedly happened in the early morning
hours of February 8. Read the affidavit
According to the statement:
“Brown was driving a vehicle with Robyn F. as the front passenger on an
unknown street in Los Angeles. Robyn F. picked up Brown’s cellular phone
and observed a three-page text message from a woman who Brown had a
previous sexual relationship with.
“A verbal argument ensued and Brown pulled the vehicle over on an unknown
street, reached over Robyn F. with his right hand, opened the car door and
attempted to force her out. Brown was unable to force Robyn F. out of the
vehicle because she was wearing a seat belt. When he could not force her to
exit, he took his right hand and shoved her head against he passenger
window of the vehicle, causing an approximate one-inch raised circular
“Robyn F. turned to face Brown and he punched her in the left eye with his
right hand. He then drove away in the vehicle and continued to punch her in
the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand.
The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to
splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the vehicle.
“Brown looked at Robyn F. and stated, ‘I’m going to beat the s–t out of
you when we get home! You wait and see!'”
The detective said she then used her cell phone to call her personal
assistant, Jennifer Rosales, who did not answer.
“Robyn F. pretended to talk to her and stated, ‘I’m on my way home. Make
sure the police are there when I get there.’
“After Robyn F. faked the call, Brown looked at her and stated, ‘You just
did the stupidest thing ever! Now I’m really going to kill you!’
“Brown resumed punching Robyn F. and she interlocked her fingers behind her
head and brought her elbows forward to protect her face. She then bent over
at the waist, placing her elbows and face near her lap in [an] attempt to
protect her face and head from the barrage of punches being levied upon her
“Brown continued to punch Robyn F. on her left arm and hand, causing her to
suffer a contusion on her left triceps that was approximately two inches in
diameter and numerous contusions on her left hand.
“Robyn F. then attempted to send a text message to her other personal
assistant, Melissa Ford. Brown snatched the cellular telephone out of her
hand and threw it out of the window onto an unknown street.
“Brown continued driving and Robyn F. observed his cellular telephone
sitting in his lap. She picked up the cellular telephone with her left hand
and before she could make a call he placed her in a head lock with his
right hand and continued to drive the vehicle with his left hand.
“Brown pulled Robyn F. close to him and bit her on her left ear. She was
able to feel the vehicle swerving from right to left as Brown sped away. He
stopped the vehicle in front of 333 North June Street and Robyn F. turned
off the car, removed the key from the ignition and sat on it.
“Brown did not know what she did with the key and began punching her in the
face and arms. He then placed her in a head lock positioning the front of
her throat between his bicep and forearm. Brown began applying pressure to
Robyn F.’s left and right carotid arteries, causing her to be unable to
breathe and she began to lose consciousness.
“She reached up with her left hand and began attempting to gouge his eyes
in an attempt to free herself. Brown bit her left ring and middle fingers
and then released her. While Brown continued to punch her, she turned
around and placed her back against the passenger door. She brought her
knees to her chest, placed her feet against Brown’s body and began pushing
him away. Brown continued to punch her on the legs and feet, causing
“Robyn F. began screaming for help and Brown exited the vehicle and walked
away. A resident in the neighborhood heard Robyn F.’s plea for help and
called 911, causing a police response. An investigation was conducted and
Robyn F. was issued a Domestic Violence Emergency Protective Order.”
