assault and making criminal threats

Chris Brown has been charged with assault and making criminal threats over his fight with girlfriend, pop star Rihanna, last month.

Brown, 19, is expected to appear in a Los Angeles court later Thursday and if found guilty, could face maximum of four years and eight months in prison, tmz.com reported.

The R&B singer was arrested following a row with the 21-year-old singer in a parked car in Los Angeles Feb 8.

He currently remains free on $50,000 bail.

The alleged attack came hours before the Grammy Awards, and both stars cancelled their scheduled appearances there. A leaked photo of the "Umbrella" singer showed her with a swollen face, cuts to her cheeks and lips.
