Thursday, Aug 27, 2009 2:05PM
Los Angeles police have reportedly released details on the publicized domestic dispute between Chris Brown and Rihanna from earlier this year including a graphic account of the former couple's fight.
Describing what happened on the couple's ride to last February's Grammy Awards ceremony, the paraphrased details said Brown attempted to force Rihanna out of his vehicle.
The victim said she became enraged and slammed both of her fists against the dashboard on the passenger side of the car they were in. She reported that the defendant then pulled the vehicle over and reached over her with his right hand. He opened the car door and tried to force the victim out. The report says Brown was unable to shove Rihanna out of the car because of her fastened seat belt. The report says when he could not force her to exit, Brown took his right hand and shoved her head against the passenger window of the car. Rihanna then faced the defendant and he punched her in the left eye with his right hand. He then continued driving. As he drove, he kept punching the victim in the face with his right hand while steering the vehicle with his left hand. Rihanna told police the assault caused her mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter over her clothing and the inside of the car. (Los Angeles Times)
Brown has reportedly decided to appear on television next month to discuss the incident.

Aside from the upcoming special, Breezy previously released a video apology to fans.
"Hi, I'm Chris Brown," he says in the video. "Since February, my attorney has advised me not to speak out even though ever since the incident, I wanted to publicly express my deepest regret and accept full responsibility...I take great pride in being able to exercise self-control and what I did was inexcusable. I'm very sad and very ashamed about what I've done. My mother and my spiritual teachers have taught me way better than that. I have told Rihanna countless times and I'm telling you today that I'm truly truly sorry that I wasn't able to handle the situation better...I've spent a lot time soul searching, and I'm trying to understand what happened and why. No one is more disappointed in me than I am...What I did is unacceptable, 100 percent. I can only ask and pray that you forgive me, please. I hope that others learn from my mistake. I intend to live my life so I am truly worthy of the term role model. Thank you." (Chris Brown TV)
