Hit-and-run charge against R&B singer Chris Brown dismissed
LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - A judge in Los Angeles on Thursday dismissed a hit-and-run charge against Chris Brown after the R&B singer and the other motorist resolved to have the case dropped, a court spokesman said, but Brown still might face jail time.
The 24-year-old singer had pleaded not guilty to the hit-and-run charge last month when lesser charges of driving without a valid licence and driving without proof of insurance were dismissed.
The Turn Up The Music singer allegedly ran into the rear of another car on May 21 in Los Angeles and fled the scene.
The charges filed by the Los Angeles city attorney led to a judge revoking Brown's probation due to the traffic accident, which could lead to jail for the Grammy-winning singer.
