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
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.
