According to the report, the charges are in connection with an accident last month where the singer hit a Mercedes.
TMZ reports Brown is being charged for fleeing the scene without exchanging proper information.
Soon after, Chris Brown took to his official — PR Twitter account — to deliver his side of the story calling the hit-and-run allegations "ridiculous."
He also changed his Twitter profile picture to a photo he claims he took of the reported car he allegedly hit.
It's not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars).This is really ridiculous— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info. She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene.— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures.— Chris Brown (@chrisbrown) June 25, 2013
