Chris Brown In Trouble Again & Could Face Jail Time Over Pet Monkey
The 28-year-old singer could be charged after failing to get a permit for his pet capuchin monkey, Fiji. Chris received some backlash in December after sharing a post on Instagram of his daughter Royalty with Fiji.
And now, California Fish and Wildlife tells E! News that within a day and a half after Chris shared the post on social media, they received “a dozen or so tips on the incident.”
It is illegal in the state of California to have a monkey without a permit and California Fish and Wildlife verified within their records Chris or anyone associated with his property did not have a permit for the monkey.
The case will be forwarded to the Los Angeles City Attorney for the next step of the process, the report has not been turned in yet. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office told Page Six that there was “no information at this time.”
TMZ reports that Chris could be charged with “having a restricted species without a permit,” which is a misdemeanor and could mean six months maximum in jail.
