Chris Brown’s hit-and-run case was just dismissed by a judge, marking a much-needed and somewhat surprising legal victory for the embattled R&B star.
Prosecutors argued that Chris deserved to be punished, and severely at that, for his alleged vehicular law-breaking earlier this summer. Not happening.
Chris’ hit-and-run victim struck a civil compromise with him; she didn’t want any money and the damage was so minor, she just wanted the case dismissed.
The L.A. City Attorney objected, arguing to the judge today that Brown was very aggressive toward the victim after the accident, which she did claim.
Officials also argued that Brown was on felony probation and therefore his alleged misconduct was all the more serious, but the judge was not persuaded.
The case was officially dismissed as of this morning.
Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos said, echoing what Chris has said all along about this and other issues, “The case never should have been filed in the first place.
“It’s unfortunate he was being prosecuted for who he is rather than what he’s done.”
Team Breezy would concur. Now many he’ll be a little less down in the dumps.
