Chris Brown Charged With Two Felonies

Chris Brown is charged with two felonies, including assault and making criminal threats.

In the early morning of Feb. 8, after attending a pre-Grammy party honoring Clive Davis, Brown allegedly bit and hit his girlfriend, R&B star Rihanna, who was hospitalized for the injuries. Brown turned himself in to police and made bail later that day.

A photo of a bruised Rihanna taken shortly after the alleged assault leaked onto the Internet on Feb. 19.

According to multiple reports, Rihanna and Brown have reconciled.

    Chris Brown is very popular. Do not know where some of you are living! He deserves what punishment they give him and she is a fool for taking him back. Once a hitter always a hitter!

    I agree that is great that he was charged but unfortunately he will probably get off because Rihanna probably won't testify now that they are back together. Hopefully the judge will go by the police report and witness accounts and he will still get what he deserves!

    He is popular where are you from. He was such as good role model for young guys, once upon a time.

    Don't build your hopes up folks, he'll get one or two slaps of the wrist and freeded.

    He is really setting a bad example for young men, needless to say, I feel sorry for her, but why is she going back for more. We all know the scenario, he will do it again, maybe worse the next time. I wish the young lady would dump him. Hope he changes, but once an abuser, usually always an abuser.

    Good! I hope he gets the maximum sentence that can be given to him. Don't let his "celebrity" status sway you jury and judge.Give him some time in the pen. He can fight all he wants there. Except the others there will fight back. As for his "music"' is that what you call that awful noise that accompanies him on stage?
