BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Singer-rapper Chris Brown crashed his black Porsche into a wall about noon Saturday and told police the crash occurred because he was being chased by paparazzi, according to Beverly Hills police.
Brown told police he was being chased by celebrity photographers, causing him to lose control of his vehicle and hit a wall in an alley near the 600 block of Bedford Drive, according to a news release.
It is unclear if there were others in the car.
No one was hurt, according to police, but Brown’s damaged Porsche had to be towed from the scene.
Brown and his attorneys spent much of the week fighting allegations by the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office that he had faked his court-ordered community service requirement.
He is on five years’ probation after pleading guilty to a felony count of assault in connection with a 2009 attack on his then-girlfriend, singer Rihanna. As part of his probation, he was required to perform 180 days of community service.
