Grammy weekend got off on a bumpy start for Chris Brown.
The best urban contemporary album nominee walked away uninjured after crashing his black Porsche into a wall during a paparazzi chase.
Beverly Hills police tell PEOPLE the accident occurred Saturday around noon when Brown, 23, lost control of his vehicle while driving to an L.A. charity event.
After Brown was reportedly cut off by photographers, "the occupants jumped out, with cameras, and aggressively approached his vehicle," Brown's rep said in a statement, via Entertainment Weekly. "In an effort to remove himself from the situation, he began to back down an alley, at which point he was cut off by two additional vehicles."
