From TMZ:

Brown’s rep released a statement yesterday claiming he was cut off by two photographers and blamed the accident on “aggressive pursuit by the paparazzi.” The photos above show the aftermath of the crash with Chris talking to cops and his car being towed away.

TMZ spoke with Chris Doherty, owner of INF, the photo agency that employed all the photographers on scene. He tells us that he is positive his photogs “had nothing to do with Chris Brown crashing.”

Doherty says his photogs arrived AFTER Chris crashed, telling TMZ, “No photographers were following him at the time he crashed … He crashed his car and it’s convenient for him to blame us. He needs to be careful with his defamatory statements.”

Doherty also says his photogs were interviewed on scene by police who “appeared to be satisfied” the photogs were not the cause of the accident.
