US rapper Chris Brown, who made headlines in 2009 for his assault on then girlfriend Rihanna, was cleared Thursday in a hit-and-run case.
A Los Angeles judge closed the case after the the 24-year-old and the other driver struck a deal.
By his own admission, Brown had rear-ended a Mercedes with his Range Rover on May 21 near Toluca Lake north of Los Angeles.
But he said he exchanged all necessary details with the driver of the Mercedes and denied leaving the scene.
