Chris Brown’s exotic Monkey pet could face criminal charges for not getting a permit to keep her.
Chris Brown took heat last month after posting a picture of his 3-year-old daughter Royalty holding a baby Capuchin monkey named Fiji. People thought it was a danger to her and belongs in the wild. Chris however, told everyone to chill.
According to law enforcement, several folks notified the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, who opened an investigation.
It turns out Chris never got a permit for the exotic pet, so authorities got a search warrant but before Chris’ house got raided, he voluntarily agreed to surrender the animal.
According to sources close to TMZ, Chris Brown could be charged with having a restricted species without a permit, a misdemeanor, that carries a maximum of 6 months in jail.
The case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney.
Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, said:
“As I leave my office in Downtown L.A. and walk past people sleeping on the street on my way to defend people charged by the City Attorney with selling medical marijuana … now spending taxpayer money on investigating monkey business, this completes the circle on his absurdity.”
