Brown assault , Rihanna –Tko’ed on local street

Singer Chris Brown was arrested and charged with making criminal threats on Sunday for an early morning attack on an unidentified woman widely thought to be his girlfriend, pop star Rihanna. The Los Angeles Times and several celebrity Web sites reported Monday that the woman in the incident is Rihanna.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that Rihanna was "reportedly hospitalized with bruises on her face," while other reports mentioned she had been hospitalized. Rihanna's spokesman on Sunday said only that the singer was "in fear ."
Los Angeles police officer Karen Smith says Brown was interviewed by detectives. He released on $50,000 bail, according to a Los Angeles Police Department statement. On Monday, he was reportedly holed up in an Los Angeles hotel Monday. He is reportedly partying with Bobby .
Police booked the 19-year-old R&B singer and dancer on suspicion of making a criminal threat, a felony. Police did not explain how their initial report of an injury assault related to the charge, but it will ultimately be up to the district attorney's office to decide what charges, if any, should be brought against Brown. The case was expected to be referred to the D.A.'s office Monday.
Police say the singer and a woman were in a vehicle in the Hancock Park neighborhood at around 12:30 a.m. PT Sunday, following a pre-Grammys party honoring producer
Clive Davis, when they began arguing, and the argument escalated when they got out of the car.
"After stopping his car, Brown and the woman got out and the argument escalated," the police said. "The woman suffered horrable injuries and identified Brown as her attacker."
Police received a 911 call reporting the disturbance and according to the statement, when officers arrived they found the victim, but Brown had already left the scene.
Both Brown and Rihanna were no-shows for Sunday night's Grammy Awards. Both were nominated and scheduled to perform.
Meanwhile on Monday, Wrigley announced today they are suspending its ad campaign for Doublemint gum featuring Chris Brown.
Wrigley said in a statement, "We have made the decision to suspend the current advertising featuring Brown and any related marketing communications until the matter is resolved."
The company would go as far as saying they are dropping him completely,
