Chris Brown charged with assault

R & B singer Chris Brown has been charged with assault as well as making criminal threats against his girlfriend and fellow singer Rihanna.

The 19-year-old appeared at the Los Angeles Superior Court yesterday making no plea. The presiding judge barred Brown from "harassing, threatening or using force" against anyone, but no mention was made of Rihanna.

If found guilty of the alleged assault Brown could face up to four-years in prison. Despite the incident, Rihanna and Brown are reported to have patched up their differences last weekend.
