CHRIS BROWN released on bail following arrest for "criminal threat" after alleged battery of unidentified woman; rumors swirl as girlfriend Rihanna skips Grammys.

A source is reported as saying
Chris was with two detectives the whole time he was in custody. He was never with any other inmates. He looked fine when he spoke with detectives. However, when the detectives left him alone, he looked at the ground and closed his eyes. You could tell he was a little sad.

UPDATE: 12:30AM: CHRIS BROWN has been released from custody after posting $50,000 bail.

UPDATE: 11:10PM CHRIS BROWN is now inmate # 1796176. CHRIS BROWN was booked at 7:41PM PST and is being held on 50-thousand dollars bail on felony battery charges.

UPDATE: 10:30PM CHRIS BROWN has surrendered to the LAPD and is being questioned by police, an LAPD Spokesperson confirms

Police are searching for CHRIS BROWN after the R & B singer allegedly assaulted a woman... and his girlfriend Rihanna has canceled her performances at tonight's Grammy Awards.

A LAPD spokesperson reports CHRIS BROWN is under investigation for alleged domestic violence felony battery. According to a police statement, Brown and the woman were in a vehicle around 12:30am on Sunday on North June street in Hancock Park area of Los Angeles when, according to the victim, they became involved in an argument. After stopping his car, CHRIS BROWN and the woman got out and the argument escalated. The woman suffered visible injuries and identified CHRIS BROWN as her attacker. The LAPD received a 911 call reporting the disturbance. When officer arrived they found the victim, but CHRIS BROWN had already left the scene.

Police say the victim has visible injuries, making the charge felony battery.

Both CHRIS BROWN and Rihanna were scheduled to perform at the Grammys.

Both have canceled.

Earlier Saturday night CHRIS BROWN and Rihanna were at the Recording Academy and Clive Davis's Pre-Grammy Gala in Beverly Hills.

What makes Sunday night’s arrest of singer Chris Brown over a reported domestic dispute in Los Angeles so strange is that the 19-year-old singer is known for his wild dance moves, not a wild lifestyle.

Brown, who was released on $50,000 bail late last night, has previously had a squeaky-clean image, both in his music – best known for tame, lovey-dovey hits like “Kiss Kiss” and “No Air” – and in his personal life, which has mainly been his relationship with 20-year-old singer Rihanna. (Though the Los Angeles Times is reporting that the charge of making felony threats stems from an incident early Sunday morning involving Rihanna, neither the Los Angeles Police Department, nor Rihanna’s spokespeople have confirmed that it does. Police do say in a statement that additional charges may be filed.)

Since his debut in 2005, Brown has built his reputation as a teen phenom in the Michael Jackson vein, making sure strong choreography accompanies his sugary pop hits. He gained attention at the MTV Video Music Awards for leaping from table to table during his performance and for writing his recent hit “Forever” as a reworking of a jingle for Wrigley’s Doublemint Gum, which has been using the song in its recent ad campaign.

His hit duet “No Air,” with Jordin Sparks, was nominated for a Grammy last night, but did not win. Both Brown and Rihanna were scheduled to perform at last night’s ceremonies but abruptly canceled, pressing Al Green and Justin Timberlake into service, performing “Let’s Stay Together” with Boyz II Men and Keith Urban to fill their performance slots.

Brown and Rihanna have been linked for more than a year, though they have been reluctant to discuss their relationship. Early on, Brown reworked Rihanna’s hit “Umbrella” into “Cinderella.”

On Brown’s website, his fans are taking a wait-and-see attitude before making their judgment. On Rihanna’s site, though, some have already made up their minds. “Send the right message to your fans to leave any boy who would hit you,” one poster tells Rihanna. “He does not deserve you. I will never buy another of his CDs regardless.”
