The 22-year-old star is allegedly took Christal Spann’s $500 communications device after she took a picture of him sitting in the back of a car – reportedly telling her “Bitch, you’re not gonna put that on the internet” – but he is maintaining his innocence to friends.
A source told RadarOnline.com: “Chris is telling friends that he has done nothing wrong. Chris is hopeful that the evidence and the true facts of the case will result in no charges being made against him. Chris is letting his lawyer, Mark Geragos, deal with the Florida State’s Attorney’s Office. Chris will do whatever his attorney asks him to do. He is no longer in the Miami, but if he needs to return for any reason, he certainly will. Chris has nothing to hide.”
Chris is particularly worried about being arrested over the Florida incident because it would likely lead too Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office revoking his probation, which was set after he pleaded no contest to battery of former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
The source added: “Chris wouldn’t need to be convicted in the Miami case to cause problems with his probation, just charged. The conditions of his felony probation are very, very strict. Chris must obey all laws and not be arrested for any other crimes. This could be a huge nightmare for his probation if he is arrested and charged. Make no mistake, Chris is taking this very seriously. He knows that one arrest could unleash a wave of new legal problems for him because he is still on felony probation.”
A spokesperson for Florida State Attorney’s Office said prosecutors are currently reviewing all evidence before making a decision on whether to pursue the complaint.
