Chris Brown has turned over a new leaf this year.
Unfortunately now, the singer is the center of a criminal investigation – but this time, he’s the victim. According to TMZ, when Chris was jailed for leaving rehab back in April and taken across the country to Washington D.C. for his hearing on assault charges, one of his first stops was San Bernardino County Jail.
Although Chris was only there for less than two days, the procedure required a jail ID. But when Chris left, his ID was left with the prisoners. Now, someone is trying to sell that ID online for $10,000.
Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, got wind of it and went to the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Dept. to clarify things, which caused the Sheriff’s Dept. to launch an investigation and trace the ID to someone in the area.
TMZ says the cops seized the ID from the perp, who insists he got it from a friend of a friend. Officials are trying to figure out how the ID got out of police custody and whether a crime has been committed.
At least Breezy isn’t the culprit this time.
