Here's Why Chris Brown Could Reportedly Face 6 Months In Jail

Brown could be hit with criminal charges for illegally owning the exotic animal, which has since been taken away from him following an investigation by the California Dept. of Fish and Wildlife, TMZ reported.

The "Questions" singer was under fire in December after he posted a video of his three-year-old daughter Royalty playing with a pet monkey affectionately called Fiji.

According to TMZ, the 28-year-old Grammy victor has already voluntarily surrendered his female baby capuchin monkey Fiji, and the case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney.

As cute as Chris Brown's pet monkey is, it's definitely been attracting some unwanted attention to Chris' life.

Investigators determined the singer didn't have a permit for the animal he named Fiji, Capt. Patrick Foy said.

Some people complained to authorities about Brown owning the pet, which prompted the investigation, according to TMZ.

California Fish and Wildlife said there were no record of a permit for the monkey for Brown or anyone associated with his property and got a search warrant for Brown's property.

Fiji was sent to an undisclosed facility.

According to TMZ, Brown could be charged with "having a restricted species without a permit", a misdemeanor which could mean a maximum of six month in jail. The case has been turned over to the L.A. City Attorney, but Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, says this "monkey business" is absurd.

Email and phone message requests for comment from Brown's representatives weren't immediately returned.
