California Fish and Wildlife operators clutched Chris Brown’s pet capuchin monkey from his Los Angeles home Friday.
Reviewers decided the singer didn’t have a permit for the swine he identified Fiji, Capt. Patrick Foy said.
Brown announced an Instagram video last month of his 3-year-old daughter, Royalty, hugging with the pet.
But online explains followed, with analysts saying the ape belonged in the mad and that Fiji could be a danger to his daughter.
Brown reacted with a “chill out” meaning at the time, TMZ reported.
Foy said the video inspired six calls to the wildlife district from people concerned about the swine. He said Brown agreed to cooperate.
Agents executed a search warrant at Brown’s home Jan. 2, Foy said, adding that Brown wasn’t there but had his employees hand over the monkey in a cage.
Brown could face a misdemeanor charge carrying a potential six-month penitentiary sentence.
Fiji was sent to an undisclosed facility.
The occasion has been turned over to the L.A. municipality attorney, TMZ reported.
“( N) ow investing taxpayer coin on investigating monkey business, this completes the clique on his absurdity, ” Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, told TMZ.
Email and telephone send requests for explain from Brown’s agents weren’t immediately returned.
