Chris Brown charged with 2 felonies

Singer expected to appear in court on Thursday

Chris Brown has been charged with two felonies, including assault likely to cause bodily injury and making criminal threats, according to court documents.

The 19-year-old R&B singer, who is free on $50,000 bail, is expected to appear in court later Thursday.

Los Angeles police arrested Brown on Feb. 8 and booked him on suspicion of making criminal threats. Police said at the time a woman identified Brown as her attacker during an early morning dispute in an upscale Los Angeles neighborhood.

A source familiar with the situation has identified the woman as Brown’s girlfriend, fellow music star Rihanna.

A phone message left for Brown’s attorney and publicist was not immediately returned.
