Chris Brown  just caught a huge break, as prosecutors FINALLY decided they will not charge the singer for stealing some girl’s phone earlier this year.

A police report was filed against Brown in February for “robbery by sudden snatching” after he allegedly grabbed a fellow club-goer’s iPhone in Miami.

“Bitch, you ain’t going to put that on no website,” he told her in classic, eloquent Chris fashion.

But after a thorough investigation, the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s office “determined we are not taking any type of criminal action,” according to TMZ.


“We have forwarded our findings to Los Angeles for the probation case review after conducting the same process that every criminal case in Miami-Dade County undergoes.”

Officials say rapper Tyga was interviewed as a witness in the case, as the iPhone ultimately ended up in the hands of Devon Blanche, head of Tyga’s security team.

According to police, Blanche told investigators:

“Chris may have taken [the phone] because Brown is known to be especially concerned that if photographs of himself with two females got out, it might cause him problems with Rihanna.”

This was in February, when Brown was still dating Karrueche Tran.

Tran also issued a statement during the investigation, in which she said the woman who owned the phone had stuck it in Brown’s car … and struck Karrueche in the head.

During the incident, Tran claims the woman dropped the phone in the car and it was eventually tossed out the window. Different than Tyga’s tale, to be sure.

Ultimately though, prosecutors say it’s plausible that the woman did put her phone in the car and that Brown simply “[removed] from the vehicle an object which didn’t belong there.”

In that scenario, he wouldn’t have broken any laws.

If Chris were to be prosecuted, it would have triggered a probation violation for him back in L.A., where he’s still on probation for the 2009 Rihanna beating.

It would’ve also capped off quite a week for Chris, who has taken serious heat for his vulgar Twitter beef with Jenny Johnson, a comedian “hater.”
