Chris Brown may be facing jail time after being charged in a hit-and-run accident. Last month, the 24-year-old singer got into a car accident while driving around Los Angeles with model Karrueche Tran. His Range Rover rear-ended a Mercedes, but fortunately there were no reported injuries.
However, he allegedly refused to give his driver's license number to the unidentified driver of the Mercedes and gave false insurance information before leaving the scene.
Brown was also driving without a valid license and is being charged for that as well. He can receive a maximum of six months in jail for each offense.

The artist is already making headlines for another incident, after being accused of attacking a woman who was with him at a club Saturday night. Deanna Gines, 24, was in the VIP section with Brown at Heat Ultra Lounge in Anaheim, Calif., after he had a performance when the incident occurred.
