Chris Brown has found himself in hot water with the law, again. Yesterday, Chris Brown turned himself into jail in connection with June’s alleged hit-and-run case with a Los Angeles motorist.
According to MTV News, Brown turned himself into Van Nuys jail around 2:40 p.m. before being officially booked on charges a few minutes later. He was subsequently released around 3:22 p.m. with no bail posted.
Back in June, Brown was slapped withhit-and-run and driving without a license charges in connection with the traffic accident. His car allegedly struck a Mercedez Benz from behind in a minor accident that left no person harmed. According to several reports, Brown refused to cooperate with the driver of the car he struck, allegedly giving false information before proceeding to flee the scene. Chris Brown has adamantly denied the truth of the charges since the incident, taking to Twitter to proclaim he did nothing wrong and fully cooperated with the driver of the other car. Each new charge carries a potential six months in prison if convicted.
If convicted, Chris Brown’s freedom could be in serious jeopardy. The singer is still on probation from the infamous 2009 felony assault of then-girlfriend, Rihanna. If convicted of these new charges, Brown could be facing four years in jail.
As of press time, XXL has contacted Brown’s attorneys for more information on the case but we were unable to reach them via phone or email. We will get you updated as the story progresses.
