The R&B star tweeted soon after the verdict to declare "thank god" after the case was thrown out.
Chris Brown will not face criminal charges over an alleged hit and run case stemming back to May this year, an LA judge announced this week.
The R&B singer pled not guilty to charges of giving out false insurance information and refusing to hand over his licence after a car accident in Toluca Lake, California involving his Range Rover and a women in a Mercedes.
However this week a Los Angeles judge dismissed the charges and revealed that the 'Turn Up The Music' singer has reached a civil compromise with the other driver.
"Thank GOD!" Chris tweeted soon after the announcement to show his relief.

According to TMZ, Chris' defence lawyer Mark Geragos claims the case "Should never have been filed in the first place", and claimed he was being targeted for "who he is rather than what he's done".
Chris Brown returns with new album 'X' later this month.
