Chris Brown has escaped being prosecuted on allegations that he grabbed a cell phone from a woman outside of a nightclub in Miami in February. TMZ reports that Brown will not be charged in the incident, where a woman filed a police report against Brown for allegedly grabbing her iPhone while she was taking a picture and saying, "Bitch, you ain't going to put that on no website."
The Miami-Dade State Attorney told the site, "The Miami Beach Police Department and my prosecutors have reviewed all of the evidence and taken the statements of numerous witnesses, many of whom were interviewed in California, and have determined we are not taking any type of criminal action regarding the incident. 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."
Interestingly enough, Brown may have done it because of concerned about how Rihanna would react even though he was still dating Karrueche Tran. According to officials, the cell phone ended up in the hands of Devon Blanche, the head of rapper Tyga's security team. Blanche told investigators, "Brown 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."
Tran spoke with officials and said that the woman who owned the phone had stuck it into Brown's car to take the picture and in doing so struck her in the front of the head. Tran said the woman then dropped the phone, which was then thrown out the window. Prosecutors say that it is very plausible that the woman did in fact put her phone in the car and that Brown just "[removed] from the vehicle an object which didn't belong there."
