Chris Brown Could Face Charge Over Pet Monkey

Posted by

R&B crooner Chris Brown faces a possible charge after he bought a pet monkey and flaunted the exotic animal on social media.

According to TMZ, Brown never got the paperwork to keep the baby capuchin monkey, so the singer could face a charge for having a restricted species without a permit.

The charge would serve as a misdemeanor, and carries a maximum of six months in jail.

Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, is less than impressed with the decision to investigate the matter.

“As I leave my office in Downtown L.A. and walk past people sleeping on the street on my way to defend people charged by the City Attorney with selling medical marijuana … now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity,” Geragos said while speaking with TMZ.

Brown surrendered the monkey to authorities after a search warrant was issued.
