Chris Brown Investigated for Domestic Assault; He and Rihanna Sitting Out Grammys

Taken from E Website

Update: Singer Chris Brown has turned himself into police after an alleged assault of a female victim.

Grammy day was supposed to be a glittery affair for R&B's reigning It couple of Chris Brown and Rihanna. But things have gone horribly amiss.
Los Angeles police have confirmed to E! News that Brown is being investigated for felony domestic battery.
Per department policy, police are declining to identity the alleged victim. The incident occurred around 12:30 a.m. Sunday in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles. Earlier in the evening, Brown and Rihanna were all smiles while attending Clive Davis' annual pre-Grammy bash together.
In a statement, police say Brown and his companion "became involved in an argument. After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified Brown as her attacker."
By the time officers arrived on scene, Brown had split. There has been no immediate comment from his publicist, and he has canceled his scheduled performance at tonight's awards.
Rihanna's publicist, Amanda Silverman, would only tell E! News that the "Disturbia" singer was involved in a traffic mishap but "is fine."
In a statement, the Recording Academy announced that Rihanna would not be performing as scheduled at tonight's show. "We're sorry she is unable to join us this evening."
