UPDATE: (scroll down)
According to TMZ.com, Chris Brown was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon in addition to the domestic battery charges filed against him by one Robyn Fenty, aka Rihanna!
TMZ has confirmed Rihanna is the named alleged victim in the Chris Brown case and the allegation is that she was assaulted with a deadly weapon.
Law enforcement sources tell us the crime report calls the incident assault with a deadly weapon -- we do not yet know the nature of the weapon.
The crime report gives the victim's name as Robyn Fenty -- that's Rihanna's real name. [LINK]
This doesn't necessarily mean Chris Brown pistol whipped Rihanna (which would explain why she's still in the hospital).
In some rare cases, assault with a deadly weapon charges have been filed against people who are experts in the field of martial arts, and their hands can technically be defined as deadly weapons.
Didn't I read somewhere that Brown was into the martial arts?
Now TMZ.com is saying there was no weapon involved.
The police report cites Penal Code Section 245 -- Assault with a Deadly Weapon. However, we're told there was no weapon involved.
