Chris Brown Under Investigation for Criminal Assault of Girlfriend Rihanna

Posted By Robert Bernstein || 28-Feb-2009

Two of today's hottest young R&B stars, Chris Brown and Rihanna, have become involved in a criminal investigation with allegations that Brown assaulted Rihanna.

Brown turned himself in to Los Angeles police following an early morning argument and alleged physical assault that played out on a quiet street in Hancock Park. Los Angeles police booked the 19-year-old singer on suspicion of making criminal threats. Brown later posted $50,000 bail and was released shortly after the end of the show, but police said additional charges may be filed against him when the case is presented to the Los Angeles County district attorney's office.

Brown and Rihanna drove through the upscale Los Angeles neighborhood about 12:30 a.m. in a rented Lamborghini and started arguing, police said. Brown stopped the car on North June Street, the two got out and the argument escalated, according to police. Rihanna, suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.

Brown is facing charges of Domestic Violence, Assault with a Deadly Weapon and criminal threats. If you or someone you know is facing domestic violence charges contact Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney Robert Bernstein for a consultation.
