R&B singer Chris Brown has spoken out in light of making widespread headlines this week after having his probation revoked in court following a recent hit-and-run accident.
Chris Breezy hopped onto his Twitter page to stand behind his past claims of doing nothing wrong in the May incident.
"Pray!," Chris tweeted July 15.
"I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n run, I provided the correct info. There were no injuries or damages. C'mon!!"
"Love you Team Breezy. I hope people can actually see the truth."
"My cross is heavy but God gives me the strength to carry it." (Chris Brown's Twitter)
Details of the singer's latest woes with the legal system bubbled online Monday (July 15).
A judge revoked Chris Brown's probation on Monday after reviewing the details of hit-and-run charges the singer is facing. However, the singer was not ordered to jail. Brown, who came to court with a group of family members, appeared downcast as he sat with his arms across his chest and his head down on the counsel table while his lawyer and a prosecutor went to the judge's chambers to discuss the case.

Despite the seriousness, Brown remains a free man until a future court hearing.
Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, suggested that perhaps the matter will be resolved informally without a major probation hearing. He said the hit-and-run case would be back in court in Van Nuys on July 23. Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray did not ask for Brown to be jailed, and the judge allowed him to remain free on his own recognizance. Another hearing is set for Aug. 16. (CBS News)
The probabtion dates back to his now-infamous domestic violence case involving ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown has been on felony probation in the 2009 beating of former girlfriend Rihanna. He has been in and out of court since then making reports on fulfilling the requirements of his probation. On May 12, Brown allegedly rear-ended a car in the San Fernando Valley and refused to give the other driver his insurance information. A woman in the car with Brown provided her driver's license, according to a police report, but Brown did not provide his until his lawyer had it delivered to the other driver two days later.
