Chris Brown Hit And Run Case Dismissed Despite Prosecutor's Objections

August 15. 2013

Chris Brown

Some good news for embattled singer Chris Brown. The hit and run case that triggered a probation violation against him has been dismissed in court. According to the Los Angeles Times, "He said that no additional money was paid to the car owner beyond the insurance payment for damage to the vehicle. 'The case never should have been filed in the first place. It's unfortunate he was being prosecuted for who he is rather than what he's done' Geragos told TMZ. Kovalenko reportedly didn't want any money because the damage done was minor and asked for the case to be dismissed."

I thought this hit and run case was dodgy from the jump. Too many inconsistencies and it should not have resulted in a probation violation. Much like the club fight case against Brown, where the woman could not make up her mind which leg was damaged after she said the singer pushed her, when club security stated they were the ones that put her out of the club for trying to get on stage with him and being drunk she fell. The whole thing seems like a big pile on. If Brown does something wrong, then fine, but if not, don't stitch him or anyone else up.

However, Brown is not totally out of the woods. According to USA Today, "City prosecutor Patrick Hiscocks objected to the dismissal, saying Brown was still on probation at the time of the crash for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009."

The mere fact the prosecutor objected could mean they are still mulling over charges against Brown stating he violated his probation in Virginia, accusing the singer of faking community service hours. There were other items mentioned as well in previous hearings but no definitive word on what the outcome of the probation review will be.

August 15, 2013, 4:15 p.m. - Chris Brown's hit-and-run case stemming from a May fender bender has been dismissed. Superior Court Judge Christine Ewell said Thursday that a "civil compromise" had been reached, L.A. Now reported.

The Grammy-winning R&B singer originally faced misdemeanor charges of hit-and-run, driving without a valid license and driving without valid insurance, but the latter two charges were dropped when the 24-year-old produced a driver license from his native Virginia and proof that he had insurance.
