Chris Brown's Arrest Warrant Not Likely To Come Today, Prosecutors Say

Categories: Crime, The Z List

After allegedly furiously swiping a fan's iPhone last weekend, Chris Brown may find himself behind bars sometime soon. Jose Lambiet at Gossip Extra says that Miami Beach Police and the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's prosecutors are in the process of planning on the best way to arrest Brown and speculates a warrant could come as early as today.

But Miami-Dade prosecutors tell Riptide that's unlikely. "Given that the prosecutor handling the case is in trial today, nothing will happen until that trial is complete," says Ed Griffith, a spokesman for the State Attorneys Office.

Brown was coming out of the Cameo nightclub on South Beach early Sunday morning when he was allegedly followed by an eager fan who wanted to take a snapshot on her iPhone. The fan, Christal Spann, claims that Brown yelled, "Bitch, you ain't going to put that on no website."

Brown then allegedly swiped Spann's $500 white iPhone and then took of in his black Bentley.

Lambiet reports that cops want to track Brown down, cuff him, and put him a police car. Meanwhile, prosecutors would rather give Brown a chance to turn himself in. Lambiet reports that the case against Brown is "iron-clad" and that five witnesses, including Brown's own bodyguards, corroborate Spann's account.

However, any warrant will have to wait for Miami-Dade prosecutors to sign off.

Brown is already a convicted felon after he beat ex-girlfriend Rihanna so severely she wound up in the hospital. He managed to avoid jail time in that case but is still on probation. A conviction for robbery could see him put in the slammer.

Brown meanwhile spent the weekend relatively worry free by partying at the NBA All-Star weekend in Orlando.

Everybody who has something negative to say about him, have yall actually call and talk to him or rihanna about this? Let me guess hmmmm NO! B/C you don't know them..The only opinion they are concerned about is their close family and friends, sorry not yours!! Relax and leave these two alone..Also why in the hack is no one talkin about hugh heifer son and his domestic violence case? That happened recently not 3yrs ago......hmmmm

I hope for your sakes you never get in trouble with the law, never get behind the wheel under the influence and injure someone, never get into a physical altercation with anyone who gets hurt, never lose your temper to the point where you step out of bounds for a minute or two. How you judge, is how you will be judged and...if you are a person who did good all of your life and made the one mistake of getting behind the wheel under the influence or something as idiotic as that, you will never ever be forgiven, even after trying to make amends.  Might as well crawl under a rock and die.   It's a wrap.

Chris Brown's cute light blue bow tie and sweater and those earings will make him a favorite of the rapists in prison.

Assault and robbery? While on probation?

Prison baby.

I don't believe this for a minute, why would his body guards tell on him? If he goes to jail then there goes their paychecks. This is complete BS! Chris's lawyer has already told his fans that this case will amount to nothing.

 If he would have left Rihanna alone and not snatch phones out the hands of strangers as if he had permission to, he would be left alone.

No, I would never feel it was acceptable to beat the s**t out of my significant other, show no remorse,and then break laws while I'm on probation.

And I've had a boy raise his hand to me before (boy because no MAN ever would). That was the first and last time and I'm still sleeping easily judging Fist Brown for being a piece of trash. The rest of the world doesn't get to be on parole and break laws so - neener neener - neither does Fist.

If he does go to jail he gonna be nowhere near the general population he's gonna be seperate from the others ... You think a prison is gonna risk bad publicity just to make some if you happy ???

how naive are you?if you're young - ok.otherwise, you really think the prison gives a ... about publicity etc.they're not around to win a popularity contest.also if cb is separated from others-there's always a way to get to him.

Chris Brown needs prison time.

The Herald reported Chris Brown had two crack whores in his Bentley and he didn't want to pic of the whores online.

Stealing is stealing. Plus I see a charge of battery added to the theft of a $500 iPhone.

Dude is going down.
