The rapper calls Tuesday's criminal charges "ridiculous"
Chris Brown was charged Tuesday with criminal hit-and-run stemming from a May 21 incident. If convicted, the hip-hop artist faces up to a year in prison.
The rapper took to Twitter that afternoon to tell his side of the story. Brown claims there was no damage to the other automobile — which he rear ended — and went so far as to change his Twitter profile picture and header photo to images from the accident scene.
He also sent out a number of tweets, ranging from claiming his innocence, to attacking "yellow journalism" to Bible verses.
Here are the tweets:
It's not a hit and run if u get out the car, exchange information (who has NO DAMAGE to either cars).This is really ridiculous
I have a valid drivers license and I gave the woman the right info. She saw cameras and wanted to make a scene.
She contacted the cops thinking of a payday from Chris Brown when I followed the proper procedures.
My lawyers will be contacting you. I will not stand for this bullying and yellow journalism!
My profile pic is the pic I took of the persons car after "the hit and run". NO damage. Just a dirty car.once again, I gotta clear my name
I work my ass off to provide for my entire family. I've made mistakes in the past and have worked hard to be a better person.
19-24 years of age. I don't have all the answers and you can't show me a person that age who has it figured out.We live and grow.Let me live
