LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Brown is accused of hitting someone — in this case, with his car. The Los Angeles city attorney’s office has charged the singer with misdemeanor hit-and-run in a May 21 minor accident in the San Fernando Valley. He is also charged with driving without a valid license. If convicted, Brown could face up to a year in jail.
A hearing on the case is set for next month, though Brown doesn’t have to appear in person. The county district attorney’s office will be notified of the charges and it will be up to the DA and the courts to determine if this new case will affect Brown’s felony probation in the 2009 beating of singer Rihanna.
