Chris Brown’s Hit & Run Charge Dismissed After Civil Deal

After dropping two of the three charges last month in Chris Brown's hit and run lawsuit, which included a count of driving without a valid license and the infraction of allegedly failing to have proof of insurance, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Christine Ewell dropped the hit and run charge following a civil deal with Brown and motorist Olga Kovalenko.

According to TMZ, Kovalenko dropped her case against Brown because the damage was minor (we're sure the monetary deal made it all sweeter).

Even with the deal, L.A.'s prosecuting attorney still objected, insisting Brown violated his 2009 felony probation when he left the scene and also for calling Kovalenko a "b*tch."

In contrary, Brown's attorney Mark Geragos fired back, claiming "The case never should have been filed in the first place. It's unfortunate he was being prosecuted for who he is rather than what he's done."

Following the dismissal, Brown took to Twitter and wrote "Thank GOD!"

He is scheduled to appear at a probation hearing today Friday, August 16.
