Apparently, the DA of the LAPD feels the evidence they have against Chris Brown isn’t enough to get a conviction, so they’re likely to push his court date back to buy time to scrounge up some more:
CHRIS BROWN’s day in court over his alleged fight with girlfriend RIHANNA could be postponed while police gather more evidence, according to the Los Angeles district attorney.
The Kiss, Kiss hitmaker was arrested and charged following an alleged attack on the Umbrella hitmaker after a pre-Grammys party on 8 February (09).
Brown was freed on bail following the incident and is facing charges of making criminal threats. He is due in court in L.A. on 5 March (09) for an arraignment hearing.
But that date may have to be pushed back, while cops strengthen their case against the star. A statement from Los Angeles district attorney spokeswoman Jane Robison reads, “We don’t have the evidence yet. (Los Angeles police detectives) are still investigating. If (detectives) determine they need more time they’ll set a new date for him (Brown) to come into court. “He only has to come back if and when we file charges.”
Rihanna was thought to have fled to her native Barbados to avoid press attention following the alleged attack – but it has now been revealed that the singer has been enjoying a sunshine break in a private beachside villa in Punta Mita, Mexico, according to the New York Daily News.
Y’all better understand what time it is when it comes to the legal system. If they can’t prove it, they don’t bother with it.
TI also re-commented on the situation:
“I’ve been blessed and fortunate enough to spend time around them and Rihanna is outstanding. She’s the sweetest girl…Chris, he’s a great guy…I can’t speak on the event that took place.
“I don’t know the details…It’s not my business, but I know through all adversity comes strength and everyone goes through things for a reason. I want to see them both rise above it, move beyond it and get back to being great,” T.I. told Extra.
He added that he “made an attempt to contact Rihanna, but understandably, she’s not able to be reached.”
Well said, TI. Very well said.
