Chris Brown Hit With Criminal Charges For Owning Exotic Monkey

While some people believe that a dog is a man’s best friend, others opt to buy monkeys. Although the exotic creatures can be purchased as pets in many countries, the laws in the United States require an owner to have a proper permit to own the animal. Chris Brown must have missed that part of his monkey manual though.

Brown is in trouble with the law yet again. This time though, the charges stem from the talented singer’s pet monkey. As reported by TMZ, the Los Angeles City Attorney’s Office is charging Brown with two counts of owning a restricted species without a permit. The violations carry a maximum sentence of 6 months in jail. Brown brought home the baby capuchin monkey named Fiji and allowed his daughter to play with the pet on his social media. If you recall, that didn’t go over so well.

Brown was forced to give up the pet after a horde of people online reported him to the authorities. At the time, which was at the top of 2018, we reported that he would possibly get hit with criminal charges. Those charges have finally been filed. Brown is due in court on February 6, and hopefully, he’s only hit with a few fines.
