Chris Brown charged with hit and run

Chris Brown charged with hit and run

Remember the accident Chris Brown got into last month that should have been nothing but became something because he acted like a little asshole? He’s officially being charged with hit and run. Which is not ideal if you’re already on probation. From CNN:

The Los Angeles city attorney filed charges of hit-and-run driving and driving without a license, according to spokesman Frank Mateljan.

While the misdemeanor charges — which carry a maximum of a year in jail — would not ordinarily threaten a defendant’s freedom, Brown’s felony probation could be revoked if a judge decides the new arrest is a violation. A spokesman for the Los Angeles County district attorney said prosecutors will review the charge once they are officially notified by the city attorney.

An arraignment for the new charges has been set for the morning of July 15 at the Van Nuys courthouse. Brown is also scheduled to be in a downtown Los Angeles courtroom that afternoon for another hearing to set a date for his trial in his probation violation case.

How interesting that Chris is due in court to face these hit and run charges the same day that he’ll be in court to face charges that he faked his community service. Turns out that being a violent lunatic can be really convenient sometimes.
