Chris Brown turned himself in to the LAPD, according to TMZ.com.
He was being sought by the LAPD for an alleged domestic violence felony battery that sources say involve his girlfriend Rihanna. The LAPD has not revealed the name of the victim (they don’t release the names of victims) but insiders have told Fox News that the victim is Rihanna.
Chris was officially booked into the custody of the LAPD. He was driven to the police department by high-powered attorney Mark Geragos.
He has been charged with one count felony criminal threats. His bail was set at $50,000, it was paid and he has been released.
The penal Code that defines a criminal threat reads:
“Any person who willfully threatens to commit a crime which will result in death or great bodily injury to another person, with the specific intent that the statement, made verbally, in writing, or by means of an electronic communication device, is to be taken as a threat.”
The case will now be sent to the district attorney’s office and further charges could be filed.
“He was very professional and didn’t appear to have injuries,” said Sgt. Bridget Pickett, adding, “He’s a good looking young man.”
A source tells RadarOnline.com that when Chris was taken into custody:
“Chris was with two detectives the whole time he was in custody. He was never with any other inmates. He looked fine when he spoke with detectives. However, when the detectives left him alone, he looked at the ground and closed his eyes. You could tell he was a little sad.” (What did they expect him to be dancing a jig?)
The silver rental Lamborghini Chris was driving the night of the alleged incident has been impounded by the police.
The victim reports that her and Chris got into an argument which became violent. According to the police the victim had “visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
The LAPD says Brown had left the scene by the time they arrived.
Chris and girlfriend Rihanna were together Saturday night, attending Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party and both canceled their scheduled performances at the Grammys.
He is scheduled to appear in court on March 5th.
