Chris Brown Turns Himself in for Hit-and-Run Case

The talented artist followed orders to turn himself in by August 6 over an alleged hit-and-run last May.

Could Chris Brown finally be growing up? After taking down his controversial home murals to avoid an impending fine by the L.A. Building Department of Safety, the R'n'B/hip-hop superstar now follows orders to turn himself in at a Van Nuys, California jail one day before the set deadline over an alleged hit-and-run offense he incurred back in May.

Brown arrived at 2 P.M. on Monday, August 5, a day ahead of schedule to avoid the media who were already tipped off regarding the August 6 deadline. He was booked and released on his own recognizance just 45 minutes later.

The police station visit was apparently a trade-off for him not being arrested on the scene when the road incident took place. The singer has pleaded not guilty to the hit-and-run charges and has since escaped two misdemeanor charges filed against him by the L.A. District Attorney's office, the driving without a valid license and proof of insurance offenses against him having been dismissed.

His next court date is set for August 15 to address the hit-and-run allegations. If he is found guilty, he could face up to four years in prison. He is also set to appear in a probation violation hearing, the probation he was sentenced to after being convicted for battery charges following an assault on his then girlfriend Rihanna back in 2009.
