I guess this is the pic the world has been waiting for. It was issued by the LAPD late last night along with the following statement about the ongoing investigation into the Chris Brown/Rihanna altercation.
Los Angeles: The unauthorized release of a domestic violence
photograph immediately generated an internal investigation.
At about 7 p.m. on February 19, 2009, the Los Angeles Police
Department Media Relations Section began receiving numerous
inquiries about the release of a photograph associated with a
domestic violence incident that occurred on February 8, 2009,
involving entertainer Chris Brown. The photograph appeared on
an entertainment website. The photograph has the appearance of
one taken during an official Domestic Violence investigation.
The Los Angeles Police Department takes seriously its duty to
maintain the confidentiality of victims of domestic violence.
The Department launched an immediate internal investigation and
subsequently filed a personnel complaint.
A violation of this type is considered serious misconduct, with
penalties up to and including termination.
