Chris Brown Under Investigation
Some bad news for Chris Brown. The 24-year-old is under criminal battery investigation for the fight he got into with singer Frank Ocean earlier this year. This comes as a surprise because not too long after the brawl took place, it was reported that local law enforcement had closed the case. However, it now appears that was not the case, this according to TMZ.
It’s being reported that the L.A. County D.A.’s Office has an “active” file on the incident and they’re trying to decide if they want to prosecute Chris Brown for battery. It should be noted that Frank Ocean did not press charges, but he did state that Brown threatened to shoot him. He also used gay slurs during the incident. However, Ocean decided not to press charges, instead he decided to urge forgiveness.
“I’ll choose sanity. No criminal charges. No civil lawsuit. Forgiveness, albeit difficult, is wisdom. Peace, albeit trite, is what I want in my short life. Peace.” Ocean told his fans.
It’ll be interesting to see if the case is brought up today during Brown’s probation review hearing, which is scheduled for today. Obviously, this will not harm his probation right now, but that could change if he is charged with some kind of crime. It’s safe to say that Brown will be very interested to hear what the D.A.’s office decides on…and so will we.
