Chris Brown Could Still Be Thrown In Jail By LA District Attorney's Office, Says Top Attorney

Even though an arrest warrant for Chris has not been issued in Miami, where he allegedly stole a woman’s phone, officials in LA could pursue this incident and try to put him behind bars — do you think he deserves this?

Chris Brown is coming under fire once again. Former New York prosecutor Raoul Felder tells HollywoodLife.com that the Los Angeles district attorney’s office could certainly go after Chris and put him behind bars for up to four years for allegedly stealing a woman’s phone!

“Chris violated his probation even if there are no charges filed against him,” Raoul tells us. “It’s an act of aggression that could be considered a threat of assault. Just because local authorities don’t prosecute, he did technically violate his probation because he was involved in an altercation. Technically he took this woman’s property and technically he acted in an assaultive matter.”

(In case you forgot, Chris would sentenced to five years probation for beating up Rihanna in 2009.)

Raoul explains why the Miami DA probably won’t press charges.. “Since he was provoked, the woman was taking pictures of him and wouldn’t stop, it’s not the kind of thing that would be prosecuted,” he continues. “Unless the prosecutor wants press and his name in the papers. But Miami doesn’t have time to get involved with this kind of thing. The kinds of things that would be considered to revoke Chris’ probation would be is he beat up someone again, especially a woman. Or if Chris began to bother Rihanna.”

Raoul says it’s highly unlikely that the LA DA’s office will pursue this but they could demand that Chris go back to anger management.

“Many times domestic violence is a problem with anger management,” he says. “What he did was react in a stronger way than the average guy because he has these problems. If I were his lawyer I’d give him a lecture and tell him that time will heal.”

We’ve reached out to Chris’ attorney and are awaiting a response.

People you are beyond crazy…. Leave Chris alone. If this is true maybe the girl should have asked to take a picture.
Better yet, he should press charges against her for invasion of privacy. How would you react if someone had their nose press against your car window trying to take a picture of you???

Jail and rehab. If it were somebody else you guys would have all probably said “send him to jail”. Don’t let biases get into the way of your judgments just because he is a celebraty. Be careful.

I love Chris, so don’t get me wrong, but how much sense does it make that Chris will be thrown in Jail for Allegedly stealing a cell phone??…How do we know that he stole the cell phone & that she isn’t just saying that??…Sounds like that whole Justin Bieber with that pregnant girl saga all over again..it’s his word against hers..This could possibly be true, but it makes no sense for him to steal a cell phone when he has well enough money to buy his own, if not more.
