Chris Brown's Hit-And-Run Case Dismissed In Court [Update: Brown Sentenced To 1,000 Hours Of Community Service]

Chris Brown's fender bender which turned into a hit-and-run case has been dismissed.

Chris Brown is finally seeing some good fortune come his way, following the news that he was being sued over the Frank Ocean studio brawl. Today, his hit-and-run case was dismissed in court.

The singer appeared in court this morning, where prosecutors argued that Breezy should be punished severely for his minor fender-bender. However, the victim herself stated she did not want to press charges, and she came to a civil compromise with Chris Brown. Nonetheless, the L.A. City Attorney objected, claiming that Brown was very aggressive to the woman (he apparently called her a "bitch").

The City Attorney also argued that Brown is on a felony probation, and thus the fact that he left the scene without providing a valid California driver's license is all the more serious. 

A judge sided with Breezy on this one though, and has dismissed the case. Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, told TMZ following the decision, "the case never should have been filed in the first place.  It's unfortunate he was being prosecuted for who he is rather than what he's done."

Hopefully this is the last we hear of Chris Brown legal troubles for awhile.

[Update: Brown Sentenced To 1,000 Hours Of Community Service]

Chris' probation was revoked in wake of the alleged hit-and-run charges he was accused of, but has now been reinstated --on one condition-- he completes 1,000 hours of community service.

You may remember when Chris was initially accused of forging his community service requirements, and due to the inconsistencies of his original 1,440 hour assignment, none of the previous hours recorded will count, and Brown will now complete 1,000 hours from zero.

To avoid any further discrepancy, the singer's work will be monitored by L.A. County officials from now on. Chris can choose between highway cleanup, beach cleanup, probation alternative work service, and (appropriately enough) graffiti removal.

Brown must report to a probation officer within the next 48 hours.
