Los Angeles, CA – Chris Brown may doubtlessly spend six months in jail for having a pet monkey. According to authorized paperwork obtained by TMZ, the Los Angeles City Attorney is charging Brown with two counts of getting a restricted species with no allow.
Brown bought the pet monkey, Fiji, in 2017 and shared a video of his then-3-year-old daughter Royalty holding it. The web shortly pounced on Brown and accused the R&B celebrity of placing his baby at risk.
Law enforcement sources say somebody notified the California Department of Fish and Wildlife that Brown was harboring the animal with no allow. Consequently, the division launched an investigation earlier this yr and obtained a search warrant to raid Brown’s residence. Before the raid may begin, Brown voluntarily agreed to give up Fiji.
Brown’s legal professional, Mark Geragos, spoke to TMZ on the matter again in January.
“As I leave my office in Downtown L.A. and walk past people sleeping on the street on my way to defend people charged by the City Attorney with selling medical marijuana … now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity,” Geragos stated.
Brown is anticipated in court docket on February 6.
