Chris Brown Charged With Assault

08 Mar 2009

The Los Angeles District Attorney’s office announced on Thursday that RB rap star, Chris Brown has been formally charged with ‘assault and making criminal threats’ in the alleged beating of his pop singer, girlfriend, Rhianna.

The 19-year-old could face anything from probation to up to four years and eight months in a state prison if he’s found guilty of attacking her in the early hours of Feb 8 – which saw Rhianna suffer multiple injuries and screaming for help after Brown launched at her in his car just hours before the pair were due to perform at the Grammys.

Even though the couple have now reconciled and recently returned from a holiday to Miami together, the case is still proceeding with Brown due in court to face the charges.
