According to a Miami Beach police report, Chris Brown is facing a “Robbery by Sudden Snatching” charge (actual legal terminology) after an incident outside a club on Feburary 19. A fan told police that she attempted to take a photograph of Brown as he was getting into his car; when Brown saw her, he got angry, grabbed her iPhone, and yelled “Bitch, you ain’t going to put that on no website.” Then he drove away with the phone. The incident is unconfirmed beyond the police report, but, well, it isn’t exactly hard to believe.
