Chris Brown is allegedly being charged with hit and run.
According to TMZ, Chris Brown, 24, has been hit with two criminal charges by the L.A. City Attorney.
The charges stem from an incident that occurred last month when Chris Brown allegedly rear-ended another driver but reportedly refused to give her his driver’s license or pass over correct insurance details.
The singer’s Range Rover reportedly inflicted “medium damage” on the Mercedes in Toluca Lake in May, according to a report from TMZ.
Chris Brown, who didn’t try and flee the scene, has more to lose than most as he’s still on probation for beating on and off girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.
As well as reportedly being charged with hit and run, he has also been charged with driving without a license, claim TMZ.
Each charge carries a maximum of six months in jail, however the City Attorney is said to be intent on raising the incidents with the L.A. County D.A.
Chris Brown could be in violation of his parole and if he is found guilty he could be sentenced to up to four years in prison.
The singer on Tuesday spoke out about the reports on his Twitter account, calling the incident “ridiculous” and denying that he gave the other driver false details.
“It’s not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars).This is really ridiculous,” Chris Brown wrote.
“I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info. She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene.”
Chris Brown then accused the woman of trying to make money out of the incident.
“She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures,” he wrote.
“My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!”
Chris Brown also updated his avatar on the social networking site, changing it to a picture of the Mercedes in question in an effort to prove that there was no damage done to the other car.
“Based on My profile pic is the pic I took of the persons car after <<the hit and run>>. NO damage. Just a dirty car.once again, I gotta clear my name,” he wrote.
Meanwhile, on Monday it was claimed that Chris Brown did not harm a woman who accused him of assault at a nightclub, according to the establishment’s owner.
Deanna Gines, 24, alleges that Chris Brown pushed her to the ground while partying at Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim, California, on Saturday.
However, the club’s owners said they have reviewed security footage and insist Chris Brown has been wrongly accused.
“Based on the information which we have gathered from our security company, mall security, and other party goers which were at HEAT on Saturday night; It is apparent that the alleged incident regarding Chris Brown is false,” they said.
