Chris Brown was arrested just before he was slated to perform at the 2009 Grammy Awards last night, according to the Los Angeles Police Department. Brown, a nominee as well, was taken in for questioning regarding an assault on an unidentified woman the night before and for allegedly making a criminal threat, a felony.
Brown, 19, turned himself in to authorities and was briefly held before posting $50,000 bail Sunday night, jail records acquired by the Tribune wire showed.
Brown and his longtime girlfriend Rihanna, who was also nominated and scheduled to perform were both no-shows at the awards.
Rappers and R&B artists getting thrown in the slammer pre-awards show is nothing new. Fellow Grammy performer T.I. was arrested in 2007 just before he was to take the stage at the BET Hip-Hop Awards. Rapper Snoop Dogg was detained because of his lengthy criminal record, missing his hosting gig at the 2007 MTV Australia Music Video Awards.
If this keeps up, hip-hop artists are going to get wise to the fact that the police stage these awards shows just to catch them all in one go. Get out while you still can, guys. Even Admiral Ackbar knows this one’s a trap!
wow,i cant belive chris brown nolonger a fan.i hope rihNNNA IS OK.
Ziasia – you don’t even know what happened and you already threw him under the bus. You were never a fan from the get-go!
HAHAHAHAHA hilarious conclusion. Like it. Yeah i was shocked to hear this. My mom wanted me to watch but my roomate and i went out with our friends last night. After it was over i was checking my maill and thank goodness for that little box that displays current events on yahoo. Im still looking for updates. This is hot. Was the victim Rihanna? I hope not.. I understand that she may have missed her performance because she may have been suporting Chris but could there be another reason? And was Rihanna at the scene of the alleged attack on the victim if Rianna is not the victim??
this is just crazy ! I can’t believe that if this be true that my baby sexy brown has hit a woman, In all my days, I just would have never thought, you know?

dey both stupid.
i have heard that rhianna put some kind of drug in chris brown’s drink at the pre-grammys party and that threw gasoline on there existing argument which created the fire….idk if thats the case but u knw how krzy rumors can be….
neway..i dnt think that chris brown could quite handle a girl like rhianna.. he had kind of a goodie-goodie image and needed a matching girl to go with that…
rhianna was too vicious for him and he needed some1 with more of a softer soul..but thats just my opinion and how i look at this whole situation..
you have to think about it though…chris brown can’t be all bad if he turned himself in….and something tells me that rhianna isnt all VICTIM..but that depends on how u hear and tell the story…
