A new criminal investigation has been opened after someone tried to sell Chris Brown’s ID this week, it has been reported.
According to TMZ, Chris Brown was taken to a San Bernardino County jail while on his way to Washington DC for his hearing on assault charges back in April. While there, a mandatory ID card was issued to him, but he left it with the wardens when he left the prison a day later.
But this week, Brown’s lawyer discovered that someone had tried to sell the ID online for $10,000 and immediately made a complaint to police in San Bernardino. Cops managed to track down the seller, who told them that he got the ID from a friend who got it from a friend.
There is no word on whether the ID hawker was arrested, but cops are trying to figure out how the ID got out of police custody in the first place … and whether any crime has been committed in the process.
