LOS ANGELES (AP) — Singer Chris Brown’s lawyer has entered a not-guilty plea for him to a hit-and-run charge that led to his parole being revoked.
A spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney’s office says charges of driving without a license and driving without proof of insurance were dismissed Tuesday after Brown’s attorney presented proof he was licensed in Virginia.
Brown was charged after a May 12 traffic accident in which he is suspected of rear-ending a car stopped at a red light and refusing to give the other driver his license or insurance information.
The singer has been on felony probation in the 2009 beating of former girlfriend Rihanna. A judge revoked his probation last week and ordered a hearing. His trial in the hit-and-run case is set for Aug. 15.
