Rihanna's late night on the town last night ended with another run-in with the police - but this time it was her driver, not Chris Brown, answering questions.

Shortly after 2:00 AM PDT, cops pulled over her driver for no front license plate (who ever heard of license plates on a car), and for overly tinted windows.

Rihanna was sitting in the backseat of the vehicle while LAPD issued the ticket, with security standing guard around the huge SUV to prevent good photos ...

Rihanna Pulled Over!

Rihanna was totally in the back of this tricked-out Escalade!

RiRi had just wrapped a night of partying at Les Deux. For the first time since her savage beating, Rihanna went out sans shades, as you can see below.

No sign of good ol' Chris Brown, who she is "taking a break" from, whatever that means. Maybe it means they aren't broken up officially, but aren't dating.

Rihanna and Chris Brown have said they're just pals.

That worked really well for Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia.

Rihanna: Wedding Dress?

Despite public speculation that they're getting it on, the "Umbrella" collaborators have been coy about the nature of their relationship.

"We're just friends... We hang out," Chris Brown, 18, said at a Grammy Awards after-party on February 10.

Two days later, however, they were spotted walking hand-in-hand into a private room at L.A.'s hottest spot, Les Deux.

The occasion? A surprise 20th birthday party for Rihanna!

After the crowd - which included Kanye West and Wilmer Valderrama - belted out "Happy Birthday," Chris stood up and serenaded her with his own version, and she was beaming. He grabbed her after the song and kissed her!

The source adds that aside from his friendly dance-off with Wilmer Valderrama (he won, we hope) that night, Chris Brown and Rihanna "constantly had their hands all over each other and were rarely apart."
