But the court appearance revealed new information on Brown's alleged beating of Rihanna. According to a search warrant and affidavit obtained by ABC News, the details about the night in question are gruesome. There is also information about other beatings and concerns from Rihanna's parents.


The fight started because Rihanna read a three-page text message on Brown's phone. The argument escalated to violence and here is a short version of what happened:

  • Brown tried to force Rihanna out of the car but was unable to because she was wearing her seat belt.
  • Brown shoved Rihanna's head against the passenger window.
  • When Rihanna turned to face him, Brown allegedly punched her and then continued punching her while driving.
  • Brown told Rihanna he was going to beat her when they got home and that he was going to kill her.
  • Brown placed her in a headlock and bit her ear.
  • The headlock was so strong that Rihanna was unable to breathe and began to lose consciousness. She reached up with her left hand and attempted to gouge his eyes out, trying to free herself.
