Police say they want to talk to Chris Brown in the aftermath of his reported brawl with Frank Ocean, and on Tuesday, it was reported that the desire goes both ways. Chris Brown apparently wants to speak to the police, as well.
According to sources, Brown is adamant: He says he didn't start Sunday night's fight between himself and his entourage and Frank Ocean and his entourage. He is reported to be extremely interested in telling the police his side of the story.
In fact, according to law enforcement sources, Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has already contacted investigators. He told them that Brown is ready to respond to questions regarding the Sunday night bruhaha that began in the parking lot of the Westlake Studio in the Los Angeles area.
In addition, Geragos says he has surveillance video of part of the fight -- but only the last part -- and Brown did not throw a punch. However, it looks like Frank Ocean is just as squeaky clean. The video clears Ocean and Brown, and shows that the two entourages were the ones swinging at each other.
To be perfectly clear, though, the video only shows the final part of the fight. It doesn't show who started the fight. As noted above, the dust-up began in the parking lot, but then moved into the lobby, where the security footage was captured.
That means there will be arguing over who started the fight. A witness has claimed that Chris Brown threw the first punch, but that's not what Brown says.
You may recall that when police arrived, Brown was gone, although Ocean was still there. The reason for that is that Geragos had told his client to leave immediately if he ever got in a situation where trouble was on the horizon.
Mark Geragos, for those unaware, is considered a "celebrity attorney." Clients that he represented in the past include Brown, Michael Jackson, Winona Ryder, politician Gary Condit, Susan McDougal, Scott Peterson, suspended NASCAR driver Jeremy Mayfield, Paul and Kulbir Dhaliwal (the two brothers injured after a tiger escaped from the San Francisco Zoo). He assisted David Carradine's family during the investigation into his accidental auto-erotica induced death.
