R&B singer Chris Brown may be trying to find his inner being at a rehabilitation center right about now but reports claim an unlikely source could help him avoid serious prison time from an arrest last weekend.
Details on what could ultimately help provide a safe fate for Chris Breezy have started to circulate online.
Here’s what we know. According to official D.C. documents — obtained by TMZ — a witness to the fight early Sunday morning told cops he heard the alleged victim tell a D.C. cop Brown NEVER HIT HIM. The cop later DENIED ever even speaking with the witness in question. But get this. A Secret Service agent — who was on duty and in uniform patrolling the streets near the White House — made contact with D.C. police and told them he happened to be around when the victim told the cop Chris never struck him. The agent says he absolutely heard the victim’s admission to the cop that Chris never struck him. This is doubly helpful for Chris. The Secret Service agent’s testimony could destroy the credibility of the alleged victim and cause prosecutors to drop the misdemeanor assault case. It could also save Chris from the more serious probation revocation in the Rihanna case — and remember, if the judge revokes Brown’s probation, he could go to prison for 4 years. (TMZ)
The 24-year-old crooner’s camp revealed his unexpected decision to seek help late Tuesday (October 29).
The singer’s arrest Sunday on an assault charge put him on a path toward a possible prison sentence, but he will be in a rehabilitation facility as his next court date approaches. “Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility,” said a statement Tuesday night from his representative. “His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point.” There has been no indication that Brown, 24, has a substance abuse problem. The behavior that has landed him in legal trouble over the past several years has been anger management. (CNN)
According to reports, Chris Breezy left jail Monday (October 28) and also had his charge reduced to a misdemeanor.
The charges against singer Chris Brown and his bodyguard stemming from a weekend fight were reduced to simple assault misdemeanors Monday. The two men, who had spent the previous 36 hours in a Washington jail, entered a packed courtroom in leg irons and handcuffs, but at the end they were unshackled and released without bail Monday afternoon. Brown, 24, was ordered to report to his California probation officer within 48 hours and to stay at least 100 yards away from the man he is accused of assaulting early Sunday. Both men must return to court on November 24. (CNN)
