Rihanna Doesn't Want A Restraining Order Against Chris Brown!

Chris Brown was charged with 2 felonies yesterday that may require jail time, and while ultimately he may simply get probation, as details emerge regarding his alleged beating of Rihanna, Brown appears to be a very troubled young man. Below are a few of the details:

He was arrested the day of the Grammy Awards after LAPD officers responded to a 911 call reporting an assault on a quiet, tree-lined street near Beverly Boulevard. When officers arrived, they found an injured Rihanna and Brown’s rented Lamborghini, but no sign of the R&B singer.

According to a search warrant written by Police Det. Deshon Andrews, the assault began when Rihanna picked up Brown’s phone as the couple drove away from a pre-Grammy party in Beverly Hills. The singer saw a long text message on Brown’s phone detailing a sexual encounter between him and another woman, the warrant said.

The pair began arguing, and Brown pulled the rented Lamborghini to the side of the road and tried to make Rihanna get out of the car, according to the warrant. When her seat belt got in the way, he began punching her in the face.

“The assault caused Robyn F.’s mouth to fill with blood and blood to splatter all over her clothing and the interior of the car,” the detective wrote in the warrant filed Feb. 20.During the alleged assault, the detective wrote, Brown told Rihanna, “I’m going to beat the [expletive] out of you when we get home. You wait and see.”

After Rihanna feigned a call to her personal assistant -- pretending to ask the woman to have police waiting at her home -- Brown became enraged, telling her, “Now I am going to kill you,” according to the warrant.

The assault escalated with Brown biting Rihanna on the ear and putting her in a headlock until she lost consciousness, according to the warrant. When she tried to free herself by “gouging his eyes out,” the detective wrote, he bit her finger. Her screams for help were heard by a neighbor, the warrant says.

Brown did appear in court yesterday, and his arraignment was postponed until April 6th. Rihanna's was also represented, and her attorney Donald Etra stated that she will not require a restraining order. I hope that she doesn't regret that decision. As for Chris Brown, the career is probably a wrap at this point. Thanks to the Los Angeles Times for the article.
