Chris Brown minor traffic charges dropped

LOS ANGELES

A spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney's office confirmed Tuesday that the charges were dismissed after his lawyer presented evidence that he was licensed in Virginia and had insurance.

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf on a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge that led to his parole being revoked. Geragos said he hopes to have that charge resolved prior to Brown's next court appearance on Aug. 15.

The charges stems from a minor car accident in the Toluca Lake area on May 12.

Brown has been on felony probation for the 2009 beating of former girlfriend Rihanna. If he is found to have violated his probation, he could land behind bars for as long as four years.
