Chris Brown Probation to Be Revoked in Hit-and-Run Case?

by at . Comments

It looks like Chris Brown could be in MAJOR hot water over his recent hit-and-run case, even if the victim declines to pursue charges against the singer.

The L.A. County District Attorney has just filed legal documents asking a judge overseeing his probation (for beating Rihanna) to revoke it, ASAP.

The D.A. is asking for the revocation based on charges being filed against Brown in connection with his now-infamous hit-and-run incident in May.

They say he left the scene without providing a California driver's license and proper insurance info, "willfully and unlawfully" breaking the law.

Even if the L.A. City Attorney ultimately declines to pursue the case because the victim doesn't cooperate - which is likely - the D.A. will press on.

It's a little confusing, but this is how it all shakes out:

Olga Gure-Kovalenko, the driver of the car Chris hit, has no desire to have him prosecuted, so Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, wants the case thrown out.

He may get his wish, but because Brown has a duty to obey all laws as a condition to his probation, he could still be in big trouble in that respect.

Since he's already on probation for assaulting Rihanna, the state has considerable leeway in terms of presumption of guilt when he gets in trouble.

An arrest or police incident - not just a conviction - could mean risking the loss of his freedom, given that probation itself was a slap on the wrist.

The D.A.'s documents asks the judge to revoke his probation and immediately remand him into custody, but it's unclear if that will happen today.

A hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. PDT, so stay tuned.
