Chris Brown arrested for assaulting Rihanna

By: The Superficial / February 9, 2009

Chris Brown became this generation’s Ike Turner Saturday night when he assaulted his girlfriend R&B singer Rihanna after both attended the 2009 Pre-Grammy Gala & Salute (above). Chris turned himself Sunday evening after the two canceled their Grammy appearances. Both were nominees. E! News reports:

A spokeswoman for Brown’s label declined comment. Rihanna’s publicist, Amanda Silverman, would only tell E! News that the 20-year-old “Disturbia” singer was involved in an unspecified traffic mishap. “Rihanna is well,” the rep said. “Thank you for concern and support.”
Per department policy, police declined to identify the alleged victim in the incident, which occurred about 12:30 a.m. in the Hancock Park area, apparently as the two were heading home from Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy bash, where they had been all smiles.
In a statement, police say Brown and his companion “became involved in an argument. After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker.”
By the time officers arrived on the scene, Brown had split.

As of this post, Chris Brown has already posted bail and been released, according to TMZ. He should spend this time kissing his career good-bye, but will probably do something retarded instead like dip his Playstation in gold. Because, clearly, Chris Brown is an idiot and a gigantic pussy. “I’m going to smack my insanely famous girlfriend right before the Grammys!” SMART.
