After being formally charged by the Los Angeles City Attorney for hit-and-run and driving without a license stemming from a traffic incident this past May, Chris Brown has taken to his Twitter account to fire back at his accuser.
Going so far as to post an image of the alleged hit-and-run victim’s bumper and license plate as his profile picture (which he has since updated to a photo of the driver taking a photo of her bumper), Brown decried the driver of the other car as looking for a “payday,” calling the charges “ridiculous.”
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—
