Over the weekend, 19-year-old R&B singer Chris Brown was arrested in Los Angeles on a felony charge of making a criminal threat after the LAPD responded to a report of domestic violence. The alleged victim was reported to be Brown's girlfriend, the singer Rihanna.

Since then, a Cleveland radio station has stopped playing Brown's music. Wrigley has suspended its ads for Doublemint gum featuring Brown, and Brown will not sing at the NBA All-Star Game, as planned.

Richard Winton, staff writer for the Los Angeles Times, has been reporting on the incident. Here, he talks about the latest developments in the case.
