Los Angeles - Chris Brown turned himself in at a jail in Los Angeles over his hit-and-run case on Monday.

The 24-year-old singer showed up at the Van Nuys jail - which serves as a temporary holding facility for men and women arrested by the Los Angeles Police Department [LAPD] - at around 14:00 and left 45 minutes later.

The star was required for a booking as at the time of the incident on 21 May he failed to give the driver he slammed into his insurance documentation and identification, and wasn't arrested at the time of the incident.

Court hearing

The Fine China hitmaker appeared in court for the offence last month where he denied doing anything wrong after he allegedly smashed into a woman's Mercedes-Benz with his Range Rover.

Although the victim refused to press charges it was required by law for the judge to revoke the star's probation, which he received after assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009.

The remaining charges from the incident, which included driving without a valid licence and proof of insurance, were dismissed.

Chris, who was placed on probation, had until 6 August to go to a police station to get booked and take another mug shot.

He will next have a court hearing over the hit-and-run on 15 August, and is also due in court for a probation hearing.
