Chris Brown Charged With Assault

Considering he was nominated for several awards and due to perform live Chris Brown was noticeably absent from last night’s Grammy awards. The reason? The RnB superstar has been charged with making criminal threats against an unidentified woman who many believe to be his girlfriend Rihanna.

In light of recent celebrity fuck ups Brown’s actions render Michael Phelp’s bong hits and Christian Bale’s expletives innocuous in comparison. Roling Stone reports:

“…News broke that a 911 call had brought police to Los Angeles’ Hancock Park neighborhood Sunday morning at approximately 12:30 a.m., where they found Brown and an assault victim suffering from visible injuries; the victim, now known to be Rihanna, identified Brown as her attacker. Brown turned himself in to cops at L.A.’s Wilshire station with his attorney, Mark Geragos (the lawyer famous for representing Michael Jackson, Winona Ryder and Scott Peterson). The singer was charged with making criminal threats, posted $50,000 bail and was released an hour later. He is due back in court March 5th.”

And with that Chris Brown becomes public enemy number one.
