Chris Brown walked out of the court room handcuffs-free yesterday when the judge revoked his probation after reviewing the singer’s alleged hit-and-run accident.

After his lawyer and a prosecutor went to the judge’s chambers to discuss the case, Superior Court Judge James Brandlin decided to revoke the singer’s probation. Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, suggested that perhaps the matter will be resolved informally without a major probation hearing. He said the hit-and-run case would be back in court in Van Nuys on July 23, according to AP.

Back in May, Brown allegedly rear-ended a woman’s car at a red light in San Fernando Valley, Calif. While the woman, a recent emigre to the U.S., reports he was kind at first, she said Brown “went ballistic” when she opted to take a photo in lieu of the license and insurance information Brown refused to provide. His on-again, off-again girlfriend Karrueche Tran, who was with Brown, gave her information instead, claiming the car was hers right before the couple sped off.

The woman claimed she didn’t even know who the “Fine China” singer was until after a friend told her after seeing a report on the Internet. She’s probably well aware of who Brown is now.
