R&B Singer Chris Brown Accused Of Snatching Fan’s iPhone

MIAMI BEACH (CBSMiami) – There’s more legal trouble facing R&B singer Chris Brown who is facing a robbery accusation on Miami Beach.

According to the Miami Beach police incident report, Chris Brown and rapper Tyga were leaving the Cameo nightclub on Miami Beach on Feb. 19th when a fan followed him outside to his car.

When Brown got into his Black Bentley, Christal Shanae Spann pulled out her iPhone and took a picture of him sitting in the car. Spann told police Brown got angry, reached through his car window and snatched the phone from her hands.

The singer then told her, “Bitch, you ain’t going to put that on no website,” according to the report. Brown then rolled up his window and drove away with her iPhone.

Brown is accused of one count of Robbery by Sudden Snatching.

Late Thursday, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle released this statement:

“My prosecutors are currently speaking with witnesses and reviewing all of the materials supplied by Miami Beach Police. Only after these reviews have been completed would any type of action be considered or taken. This is the basic process that every criminal case in Miami-Dade County undergoes.”

He’s no stranger to the law. Brown pleaded guilty in 2009 for felony assault for hitting then-girlfriend Rihanna.

One day after the Miami Beach incident, Rihanna celebrated her birthday and released a controversial remix of the song “Birthday Cake” featuring Chris Brown.

Her decision to collaborate with Brown left many fans and friends in shock , awe and confusion.

According to TMZ, the singers are also getting close to reconciling on a personal level, although pals are doing everything they can to prevent it.

    Something about dudes named Brown and chicks’ desire to snort coke with them and destroy their careers. Well, Rihanna never had any talent to lose, so at least the cocaine keeps her skinny. Her butt COULD be a lot bigger, folks.

    1. Chris Clemons says:

      stechatte – This is why America is doomed. You spit BS like this when in reality, Whitney introduced coke to Brown… You’re a fool.

      1. Curlyhammed says:

        America would be better off is ships sailed both ways to Africa.

      2. Marco Polo says:

        who cares who introduced it to who? fact is she WAS a crackhead and did not deserve a police escort or the honor of having the flag blown at half mast….she didn’t contribute anything to her country except a bunch of tabloid news stories and a couple of good songs…hardly warrants a police escort or flags at half mast….

      3. Black says:

        @curlyhammed and America would be better off if the ships sailed both ways to the hills and cave of Europe too.

      4. Black says:

        @marco polo Whitney Houston contributed generously to more American orgs then you can count. since we are on worthless individuals celebrated for nothing, what are your thoughs on COKE HEAD & pedophile (how old was Pricillia?) Elvis Presley? I’m out done each year they lower the flag half-mast for that filthy drug addict birth & death dates!

    2. Douglas says:

      You cannot take the hood out of the thug.

      1. Steve H says:

        nobody even knew who she was until Brown beat her up, she probably told him thanks

    3. Black says:

      What’s with dudes name Charlie Sheen with his 20 yr history of beating women (denise richards, kelly preston, brook muller, strippers & prostitutes). Funny that he never receives the flack that this kid has for 1 fight 3 yrs ago, a Grammy win, & making 2 songs with his ex. Damn, when he won those Emmy’s where was the backlash against him? How about the backlash against Sean Penn beating Madonna and Robin Wright-Penn? Dude won an Osacr and is now the Ambasador to Hati. I wonder why the “good folks” didn’t constantly attempt to humilate him. Someone makes an allegation and it’s now just a fact case close? Wow America the beautiful. 3 yrs is a long time to keep dredging up! Do all if you’re gonna repeatedly do one!

      1. Flex says:

        I know why Their White LMAO! They are holier than thou even though the Native Americans were spot on when they called them Pale face Devils boy has that name stick

  2. nomo says:

    Chris Brown, class act through and through.

    1. Aleha says:

      He is a tu rd.

    2. Cyn507 says:

      Thats ok, i bet this talentless thug wannabe is flat broke by30. He just doesnt have the smarts or talent to stay in the game.

    3. Brian, Detroit, MI says:

      When will people become SMART enough to refuse to buy his BS? Or letting their kids buy his BS?

  3. Chris Brown says:

    Chris Brown = P.O.S.

    1. Me Gusta says:

      Chris Brown: the King of Chimping Out

  4. Brodik says:

    Seems he only acts that way towards women. If that little irrelevant piece of trash grabbed my phone out of my hands I would be the one going to jail and he would be going to the hospital.

    1. poopoo says:

      Internet Tough Guy detected

      1. iluvla says:

        I would’ve done the same thing so I gues that makes me an internet tough girl! He’s a punk who wouldn’t dare fight a man, hence the bodyguards!

      2. Sam Hill says:

        That’s right. Got a problem with that?

      3. Sam Hill says:

        Previous comment directed to “poopoo”. What an appropriate name. LOL.

    2. JamesD says:

      Hopefully you are smart enough to see the silliness of even trying to get a picture of this loser so this would never happen to you.

    3. hughjassol says:

      he is such a tough guy, without his entourage he is nothing but a fast talking midget with ink all over his body. F you C. Brown-woman beater.

    4. Black says:

      Wow you media tools are a trip. Where is the evidence that this is TRUE? He’s just evil because some random person makes an allegation against him? Well how about if I make one against you?

      1. curylyhammed says:

        Those KneeGrows sure are primitive.

  5. sara says:

    Doesn’t this go against his probation? I hope the judge sends that women beater to jail! I’m still shocked rihanna collaborated with him. I can’t believe the message she is sending to her fans!!

    1. rausky79 says:

      Sara what can you expect from GHETTO TRASH! NOTHING GOOD!!

      1. DawnJ says:

        Yeah, cause there are no classy, well-to-do women sticking by their abusive husbands. Right? What an idiotic comment.

      2. bernie says:

        You can take the N36R0 out of da 6hett0 but . . . .

  6. Steve says:

    The phone was racist.

  7. Felix El Gato says:

    Chris feels he can beat up the average female. He wouldn’t dare try that with a man who might hit back. Punk.

    1. c says:

      Who says a woman wouldn’t hit back?

    2. Dan says:

      I agree 100% with this cat… when I was a boy, I’d be beaten for simply getting mouthy AROUND a female; it only took one lesson. Over the years, I’ve paid that forward to other guys who can’t keep their hands (or their tongue) civil around women. I don’t even want to know what my old man would do if I became involved with the robbery and beating of women as a grown-*** man, instead of mouthing off as an 8-year-old. He’d probably come by my house tonight and shoot me, as he’s too old to beat me up anymore.

      Is Chris’s dad dead? Or did he never have one?

      1. true justice says:

        As is common in this culture his mommy banged everything in the hood with 2 or more legs and has no idea who daddy was. Support Planned Parenthood, the most effective crime prevention method, they eliminate 60% of the convicts in training before they commit their first crime.

      2. David from San Diego says:

        I LOVE “true justice” reply. I agree TOTALLY. About 17 years after Roe v. Wade, which was about 1990, the crime rate dropped precipitously.
        I also agree with “Dan”. Chris Brown never had a father, so he needs to find some male companionship in prison.
        I’m also glad that everyone seems to agree that if a felon on probation physically assaults a woman, he needs to go to jail until he’s just too OLD to ever try it again. Chris Brown probably has a diçk the size of pencil.

  8. Justin says:

    He better hope CM Punk doesn’t catch him.

    1. clease says:

      wait till wrestlemania. Vince will make it happen. I hope.

  9. No says:

    “The singer than told her”….really???? REALLY?

  10. Mike G says:

    Let me guess, he is a victim of white racism and it is all George Bush’s and/or the Tea Party’s fault. Wait for it.

    1. Mike G's internal monologue says:

      keep waiting. idiot.

      1. Steve says:

        You should use proper capitalization when calling someone else an “idiot.”

    2. CaSami says:

      I would not be suprised to hear that. P C run amok after all.

      1. AGAIN says:

        This is for those PC people…Typical black male acting like a spoiled 5 year old tempertantrum brat! Why? Because his “Momma” didn’t raise him right! Black people should be raised by middle class white people.

  11. The Smoking Man says:

    A criminal act by a known criminal.

  12. Catherine Crabill says:

    Brown wasn’t raised in no ghetto. He was raised in Tappahannock, Va., a beautiful, historic, waterfront community on the Rappahannock River with good ol’ southern values that DON’T INCLUDE BEATING WOMEN AND STEALING FROM OTHERS WHILE SHOUTING PROFANITIES. Consequently, he has no excuse for being an obnoxious punk thug.

    1. bobonnit says:

      Wasn’t raised in “no ghetto” (sic.) ? He sure speaks and acts like he was.

    2. Binny says:

      So what you’re saying is he’s a “wanna-be” . I still don’t get why anyone would want to act like someone with no future.

  13. Neal says:

    wrong half died

    1. JG says:

      I believe you’re thinking of Bobby Brown, not Chris Brown.

  14. DOMINGO says:

    HE LIKES TO HANDLE WOMAN HARD BUT HE WOULD NOT HAVE DONE THAT TO A MAN HE WOULD HAVE HIS ASS KICK OVER THE BEACH HE GET OFF ON HITTING GIRLS SOMEONE NEEDS TO KICK HIS GHETTO ASS ALL OVER THE STREET ONE ALL HE IS TRASH NOTHING MORE THEY SHOULD SEND HIM BACK TO JAIL FOR BREAKING HIS PROBATION THEY SHOULD SEND HIS LITTLE PUNK ASS TO JAIL AND LET BUBBU DRAG HIM AROUND AND SHOW HIM WHAT A MAN IS BET HE WOULD LOVE THAT

  15. monica says:

    This is CLEARLY a fabrication. If this happened LAST weekend, why is it being reported NOW? Every time Chris Brown has something good going for him, the media launches attacks. It’s obvious that perhaps someone is upset at his renewed fame…

    1. joe says:

      you are clearly intellectually challenged…

    2. Victoria says:

      It only happened four days ago. Did it ever occur to you that the police and the DA’s office would take their time to do a thorough investigation and not rush to judgement? Don’t you think they’ve investigated as to whether the girl was telling the truth? Four days is not all that long… They waited months and months to charge Scott Petersen with the death of his wife. Do us a favor and read up on the criminal investigative process.

    3. Victoria says:

      The woman filed the complaint with police at 4:43 am SUNDAY, the same day it happened. That was just four days ago and they have been investigating. Often crimes are not reported to the media at all.

      1. ADMIN says:

        We had a report on this within hours, but because of the holiday were unable to get the necessary police documentation.

    4. iluvla says:

      There were witness you idiot! How about the man hates woman and needs to be locked up!

    5. David from San Diego says:

      So, monica, how long have you worked for Chris Brown’s publicist?

  16. Steve says:

    Once a douchbag always a douchbag….

  17. jollercoaster says:

    Goon. Belongs in prison with his “brothers”.

  18. CHRIS says:

    What an idiot. I can’t believe he is still relevant in the world. I LOVE YOU MIRANDA LAMBERT.

  19. Jon Anthony says:

    This guy’s even a blight on Mocha History month!

    (Wait…when IS THAT??)

  20. patforet says:

    poor chris brown, still thinks he’s above the law. thash boy.

  21. Alan Richards says:

    He needs a good b!tch slapping, and I am just the guy to do it.

  22. ElephantFeelings says:

    Proof that the bad boy always gets the girl. I am in no way praising his actions, but by being dominant and bold , he has managed to get Rihanna back into his life. Think about that for a second.

    1. Robo says:

      Thought about it.
      Laughed about it.
      Forgot about it.

      1. iluvla says:

        You forgot Replied about it!

    2. ImpishLisa says:

      Yeah but she isn’t subby and you can’ t get away with that stuff in a non consensual manner. What you do in the privacy of the bedroom is one thing.When you show your a%% in public, it becomes a crime.
      Remember folks, REAL BDSM is Safe Sane Consensual.
      Apparently the silly girl thinks because she watches some video, reads some pron websites and calls herself knowing about S&M she is ‘hip’. That boy (yes, boy) is not a dominant male. He is a bully. A thug with a mental issue. If the punk thinks he is a Dom he has his head twisted sideways.

  23. booooo says:

    breaking news! chris brown does the watusi and chicken dance at the funeral of a toddler.

  24. jacque says:

    She should’t have been trying to get his photo to post, he’s no different from most men, jut rich and fine, he’s a kid leve him alone!

    1. booooo says:

      while he may act like a child, once you slam a girls face into a car window and get charged with felony assault, you are no longer a kid. why do people defend this guy? i hope he moonwalks his way off the face of the planet.

  25. jacque says:

    George Kingfish Stevens is a bigot and probaby a sissy, he ain’t scared of you!

    1. booooo says:

      i can only hope your face has looked like rihanna’s after chris brown’s post grammy joy ride at some point.

  26. Robert Duley says:

    “May I take your picture?”

  27. jacque says:

    Hey, I’ll bet you that this was not the first time he hit Rhianna, she’s the fool for staying and getting hit

    1. booooo says:

      wow you are a brilliant individual.

  28. Michelle says:

    First of all, we dont know what his side of the story is. Maybe he was just having a bad day. Seriously, people need to stop hating. He so talented that if he mess up once in a while we should forgive him. What he did to Rhianna was was no good, but than again she probably asked for it.
    All Im saying is leave the brother alone, he is just another young black man that eveyone is hating on cause he is so damm cute…..

    1. Victoria says:

      Your blaming Rhianna and your defense of him is very sad. Hope you never end up in the crosshairs of Brown when he’s in a rage. Someone’s going to end up like Nicole Brown Simpson.

    2. Sasha says:

      Wow Michelle you can’t be serious? I mean are you for real?

    3. steverino says:

      Michelle please learn grammar and spelling next time. This guy has no talent. Singers are fortunate to be born with a gift. As soon as he masters an instrument you can tell us what a talent he is.

    4. Y. F. Beeder says:

      Yeah, the side of her head is begging for his brick, no doubt…

    5. E. Bonix says:

      “…we dont [sic] know… He [sic] so talented that if he mess [sic] up once in a while we should forgive him… All Im [sic] saying is leave the brother alone, he is just another young black man that eveyone [sic] is hating on cause [sic] he is so damm [sic] cute…”

      He nebba axed fro’ yo he’p, gurlfrim…

    6. iluvla says:

      So if I’m having a bad day I can steal your $500.00 IPhone?! Good to know.

    7. ImpishLisa says:

      You call that pittbull headed freak cute? LOL. Some people set such LOW expectations.

    8. darth says:

      you live in a very distorted and sad world. I have never hit my wife or any other woman. You think this is normal because you have been hit- which is one of the biggest problems in domestic violence- the victims think its normal. I feel very sad for you that you think hitting a woman is normal and we all do it, and the fact that your so ignorant about life.

  29. Mike says:

    If Rihanna is stupid enough to go back to him, he can beat her ass to death next time as far as I am concerned. I don’t have time to waste on anyone that stupid.

    1. CRACKER says:

      WHY WASTE YOUR TIME ON A CELEBRITY? YOU DON’T KNOW THEM, FOOL. LOL

  30. steverino says:

    I hope he gets it in prison- from behind. They don’t like guys who abuse women and kids. This guy is a big nothin. Squash him like a bug.

  31. RP says:

    Why would anyone want a picture of this loser? I think his mother drank/smoked crack heavily during pregnancy. He looks like a grown-up crackbaby.

  32. Eric R.Ewell says:

    I hope Rianna has a bodyguard by her side when she records the duet with that thug.

  33. me says:

    How about someone punch his punk ass out?

  34. kevin says:

    You can them out of the ghetto. but you cant take the ghetto out of them. another who will self destruct.

  35. miss c says:

    i could care less about chris brown and the chick that was in his face… whats funny is all these comments.. im assuming you “rasict ” didnt read any other news today …like the white lady who gave birth today after she ran her white step daughter around in the yard yesterday because she ate a piece of candy and the kid died.. im assuming you havent read any of the horror stories where children were murdered or beaten by some meth head .. yes there were stories of abuse by blacks but since you want to focus on irrelevant mess i will point it out for you… there are chidren being murdered by their parents caregivers strangers black but mostly white ..but all you have to focus on is this bs news.. really now this is this society we live in really????

  36. Julia says:

    He’ll pay her off. Case closed.

  37. Christinos says:

    I wish someone would be the black ghetto out of that ghetto piece of trash.

  38. Christinos says:

    I wish someone would beat the black ghetto out of that ghetto piece of trash.

  39. racerjay says:

    Patience my people, this low life will get it from the front or the back POS!

  40. Chris Brown says:

    You can take the hood out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of the hood.

  41. Frankie D says:

    And to think, just 2 weeks ago, he asked the California judge to release him from his probation 3 years early. The judge said no. So now Chris is going to get violated and looking at some California jail time. This guy is a slow learner.

  42. Joe Mama says:

    Damn spooks.

    1. CRACKER says:

      DAMN CRACKERS.

      1. Joe Mama says:

        You know where that term came from right (you are probably too stupid though)? It was the taskmasters whip crackin’ on your black ass.

  43. Emily Mascarenhas-Bennett says:

    If the cell phone owner is white, she is trash for being a fan of Brown’s.

    1. Victoria says:

      The cell phone owner is black and a college graduate.

  44. Killer says:

    once a hoodrat always a hoodrat.

  45. markflag says:

    Somehow I don’t think the double negative was used in ironic fashion.

  46. Anti brown says:

    Classy Blackie

  47. bobby says:

    Bwah, ha, ha, ha,ha – Crissy Brown is going to jail – bwah, ha, ha, ha!! He’ll get hisself some man-love!!

  48. stoptouchingthatmabel says:

    A thug and a slug.

  49. Brady says:

    I blame George Bush

    1. kayla says:

      you are stupid

  50. Ty says:

    Just like Kanye and Bobby Brown treat women, so to does this loser. Afraid of men so they think they can abuse women. Seen it too many times. Thats why Rhianna is going back to him. We have all seen it before when an abused woman will support her abuser instead of the people trying to help her. “I fell” is heard a lot.

  51. Barry Soetero says:

    Charge this piece of cr*p with assault!

  52. Bill says:

    It be good to be black in today’s society.

    1. Flex says:

      Its amazing Crackers still using the internet to talk tough such cowards especially the men…..LMAO!

  53. dam says:

    Hey look, it’s shark week!

  54. Roger says:

    Such a positive effect on his ethnic cousins… crime, abortions, divorces, fatherless families, welfare and yet they still spend money on their Hip Hop, maven, music brethren who could care less about the ‘hood’ except they live it in their Bentleys.

  55. NORMAJEAN123 says:

    “You ain’t putting that on no web site” Wow! What class!

  56. Jan says:

    Not defending what Brown & Rhianna have done in the past but that “fan” was out of line… WHAT DID SHE EXPECT… IDIOT…

    1. Sarah says:

      What?? They were in publlic on a public street. She had every right to take any pictures she wanted. Maybe she expected to be able to do what she had every right to do without being robbed or accosted
      . What was he so afraid of. Did he think the camera would steal his soul? lol What soul?

  57. donpopione says:

    I guess Rihanna wants another beating, these girls never learn. I’ve been in law enforcement for 25 years and these guys never change, once a women abuser always a women abuser.

    1. castingstones says:

      No one wants a beating, she is living what she learned growing up watching her own dad beat her mom she needs help.

  58. mmilesll says:

    This ass should have been put in jail years ago.

  59. Swilly says:

    u can take the bundy out of the jungle but cant take the jungle out of the bundy

  60. Machismo says:

    Chris Brown Da boy from Da hood is not going to have any fans acting like dat!

  61. Ann says:

    He is actually a very talented. It’s a shame that all that talent is wasted on someone with such a depraved personality and disrespect for others, especially women. He’s had enough advantages and second chances. I hope he gets locked up.

  62. Marco Polo says:

    Looks like he’s turning into a woman beating version of Kanye West….

  63. 66Malibu says:

    This man reminds me of Mike Tyson. They both look alike, and act just alike. Same haircut and everything. They get into fights with guys in Public. They have no respect for women.
    But Chris acts like he’s got a mental problem. He makes faces all up in the camera. He don’t care how nobody feels about him. He doesn’t try to replenish the problem or anything. But let him make onet wrong turn. And he’ll end up in the middle of nowhere, and trying to figure out how he got there. These Police don’t give a f–!! about you. You think they gave a you know what about John Gotti? They locks up celebs. mafia bosses, and everything. You better get out of that time machine, that you are caught up in. That’s what you need to do.
