Chris brown got involved in a car accident on Saturday, February 9. The "Don't Judge Me" hitmaker was on his way to a charity event in Los Angeles when he was cut off by two vehicles.

He was in his vehicle by himself headed to the Debbie Allen Dance Academy for a Symphonic Love Foundation event when two vehicles cut him off," his publicist explained what happened in a statement to JustJared.

In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley at which point his was cut off by two additional vehicles. Chris' vehicle was totaled due to this aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi. He is okay."
The police dept. detailed to TMZ, "On February 9, 2013 at approximately 1203pm, entertainer Chris Brown was involved in a solo, non-injury traffic collision in the 600 Block Bedford Drive/Camden Drive alley. Mr. Brown was the driver of the vehicle and collided with a wall. Brown stated that he was being chased by paparazzi causing him to lose control of his vehicle."
Back in 2009, Breezy also made headlines on the eve of Grammys. He was involved in a physical altercation with Rihanna, leaving her with bloody, bruised and swollen face. He was sentenced to 180 days of community services, five years of probation and one year of domestic violence counseling after pleading no contest to a felony battery charge.
He claimed he had completed 202 days of the court-mandated work, more than he was required to do, but the DA accused him of faking it. The investigators claimed his documentation was "at best sloppy ... and at worst fraudulent reporting" and the found no "credible, competent or verifiable evidence" that he had done what the court asked him to do.
