Chris Brown may face jail after monkey seized

Are you surprised Chris Brown might be spending time behind bars for getting a monkey as a pet?

California Fish and Wildlife agents seized Chris Brown's pet capuchin monkey from his Los Angeles home Friday. People thought the monkey was a danger to Royalty and it belonged in the wild, but Chris wasn't buying it and told everyone to relax.

Under California law, it is illegal to keep certain exotic species, including monkeys, poisonous snakes, lizards and other unsafe animals, without a permit.

Singer Chris Brown appears for a probation progress hearing at the Clara Shortridge Foltz Criminal Justice Centre in Los Angeles February 3, 2014.

In fact, he managed to cause serious outrage among some members of the public last month, when he shared a snap of his three-year-old daughter, Royalty, holding Fiji.

Reports say that it is indeed possible that he'll even go to prison for not obtaining a proper permit for his monkey.

It turns out Chris never got a permit for the exotic pet, so authorities got a search warrant but before Chris' house got raided, he voluntarily agreed to surrender the animal.

Brown could face up to a maximum of six months in jail if convicted. News, "We are confident that the City Attorney has more pressing problems than monkey business". Now, his case sits with L.A.'s City Attorney who will be seeing Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, ASAP.

A number of people weren't too happy about Chris allowing the animal near his daughter, because they thought it could posed a risk to her.
