Chris Brown*Chris Brown and the word trouble seem to always be in the same sentence.

That’s the case again because the LAPD is investigating the singer/dancer and if it triggers a parole violation, it could land him in jail.

It’s all because of the “low level” auto accident Brown was in last week that’s now a full-blown hit-and-run investigation … after Chris Brown allegedly refused to give the driver he rear-ended his driver’s license info.  He reportedly also gave the woman incorrect insurance info.

As we all know, Chris Brown is on probation for the vicious Rihanna beating. And of course one of the conditions is that he has to obey all laws. Period. If there’s probable cause to believe he broke the law by leaving the scene without fully disclosing information required by law, his probation could be violated and Chris could go to prison for up to 4 years.

But we wouldn’t bet on it. We’ll see.
