The Los Angeles County District Attorney has filed legal documents to have Chris Brown's probation revoked in the Rihanna beating case following a reported hit-and-run the rapper was involved in back in May.

TMZ reports, the documents claim that Brown "willfully and unlawfully" broke the law in the hit and run case and ask the judge to immediately revoke his probation and to remand him to custody.

The D.A.'s request comes a month and a half after the "Fine China" singer was charged with driving without a valid license and rear-ending a car without exchanging information with the driver.

According to TMZ, the D.A. is asking for the revocation of Brown's probation even if the L.A. City Attorney agrees to drop the hit and run charges, a possibility if the victim doesn't want Brown prosecuted.

If the judge grants the D.A.'s request the 24-year-old singer could face up to four years in prison.

Hours after news broke about the the District Attorney's plan, Brown went to Twitter to proclaim his innocence.

"I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n run, I provided the correct info. There were no injuries or damages. C'mon!!" he wrote.
