Police hand Chris Brown case to District Attorney

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- The legal wheels continue to turn in the Chris Brown/Rihanna saga. A spokeswoman for the Los Angeles district attorney's office says police have presented to them a case regarding the singer. But Jane Robison says county prosecutors are seeking more investigation. The spokeswoman didn't release any information about the case that police presented yesterday. And she says the DA will have nothing more to say while the investigation continues.

Brown was booked Sunday for investigation of making a criminal threat after a woman accused him of assault on Grammy Eve. The Los Angeles Times quotes law enforcement sources as saying the woman is Rihanna, Brown's girlfriend. Brown is currently free on $50,000 bail. Both artists skipped the Grammys after the incident. Both were scheduled to perform.

There has also been more fallout. After listeners called in to criticize Brown, a Cleveland-area radio station (WAKS-FM) has stopped playing his music until the allegations are resolved. Stations in Pittsburgh and Indianapolis also reportedly pulled Brown's music.
