The Los Angeles District Attorney charged Chris Brown today with two felony accounts relating to his alleged Feb. 8 attack on girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown is charged with assault and making criminal threats.

Fox 11 News in Los Angeles is reporting that a LAPD detective’s affidavit goes into graphic detail about the alleged beating of Rihanna. Brown and Rihanna’s argument began after she read a text message sent to Brown. Brown pushed her head against the window and punched her in the face repeatedly. During the account, according to Rihanna’s statement in the affidavit, Brown threatens to kill her. He bit her ear and her fingers. Rihanna finally grabbed the key out of the ignition and story says tried to gouge Rihanna’s eyes out-we don’t know if that was with the keys or her fingers.  

Brown will be arraigned later on today. We’ll update the story then.
