Chris Brown Arrested For Felony Battery, Misses Grammys With Rihanna

Chris Brown surrendered to Los Angeles police on Sunday evening following an investigation of felony battery charges.

According to police records, the 19-year-old R&B singer was taken into custody at 6:30 PM and was officially booked at 7:40 PM for making criminal threats. As a result Brown missed a scheduled appearance at the Grammy awards, including a performance by girlfriend Rihanna (photosRihanna photos).

The police report reads that Brown and a woman were in a car on late Saturday night when they became involved in an argument. After stopping his car, the argument escalated leading to a call to 911. When officers arrived they found the victim with visible injuries, but Brown had already fled the scene.

As for who the victim was, officer April Harding refused to provide details: "The identity of the victim will not be released. Any victim who's involved in a domestic violence incident is entitled to confidentiality."

However, the buzz is that it was none other than Rihanna and that she suffered visible bruises on her face following the incident. Rihanna's publicist declined to comment why the singer did not appear, saying only that she was "well" and expressing thanks for the concern.

Brown and Rihanna were up for dueling Pop Collaboration with Vocals awards, Brown for his duet with Jordin Sparks on 'No Air', and Rihanna with Maroon 5 for 'If I Never See Your Face Again.'

Brown was released after posting $50,000 bail and is due in court March 5.
