Chris Brown Could Be Off the Hook in Hit-and-Run Case, D.A. Wants Probation Revoked


Uh-oh! A judge has revoked Chris Brown’s probation stemming from his 2009 assault case against Rihanna.

The crooner was in a Los Angeles courtroom today (July 15) listening to Superior Court Judge James Brandlin nullify his probation in the wake of his hit-and-run charges from a car accident in May.

Another hearing is scheduled for Aug. 16 where Judge Brandlin will most likely render the singer’s fate — prison or freedom. If the judge feels that Brown violated his probation, he’s looking at four years in prison.

For now, Brown remains free on his own recognizance.


Good news and bad news for Chris Brown. It’s likely that the embattled singer won’t face any criminal prosecution stemming from his hit-and-run case in May. However, Los Angeles prosecutors want to revoke his probation.

According to TMZ, Olga Gure-Kovalenko, the driver of the car Brown rammed into, doesn’t want to file charges against the crooner. Since then, Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, has filed documents to have the criminal case expunged.

Olga’s lawyer, Freddy Sayegh, told TMZ that his client never wanted money from Brown and there was only minor damage to her car. However, the L.A. City Attorney has not dropped the case as of yet because they want to speak with Gure-Kovalenko. Another hearing in this case is scheduled for July 23.

On the flip side, the D.A. has filed a motion to have Breezy’s probation revoked because he was charged with a misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving without a valid license.

Brown has been on felony probation since the 2009 beating of his off-and-on girlfriend Rihanna.

The D.A. feels Brown “willfully and unlawfully” broke the law. If a judge finds that Brown violated his probation, he could be facing four years in prison.

In response to the D.A.’s actions Brown tweeted:
