Chris Brown might have violated parole in L.A. fender-bender

When photos of Chris Brown emerged last week showing the bad boy getting out of his car to exchange info with the woman whose Mercedes he had just rear-ended in L.A., it looked like he finally was doing the right thing. Not so fast!

Brown not only gave the woman “attitude” (no!), TMZ reports, but he refused to show her his ID and he allegedly gave her incorrect insurance information before he took off. If true, this could amount to leaving the scene of an accident, which could violate Chris’ parole and could carry a prison term.

Brown also has been accused of lying to the court about the community service he did (or did not) complete, so eventually some of this stuff has got to catch up with him–we hope.
