LOS ANGELES » The Los Angeles city attorney's office has charged singer Chris Brown with misdemeanor hit-and-run and driving without a valid license.

City attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says the charges filed today involve a minor accident on May 21 in the San Fernando Valley.

If convicted, Brown would face up to one year in jail.

Arraignment is scheduled for July 15 at the Van Nuys courthouse, but an attorney can appear on Brown's behalf.

Mateljan says the county district attorney's office will be notified of the charges and it will be up to that office and the courts to determine if the case will have any effect on Brown's felony probation in the 2009 beating of singer Rihanna.

A call seeking comment from a Brown representative was not immediately returned today.

When was the last time a celebrity got locked up? Just like our judicial system, going be out driving again, until he gets into another accident, etc. Then, released, again and again. No make sense.

Good old Chris Brown, the boy who can do no wrong. Even after giving Rhianna of beating that would’ve made Floyd Mayweather jealous. And we put them right back in the public eye continue to stick money in his pocket. What did you expect people?
