The above photo showed up at TMZ.com and is reportedly taken from the night of the incident involving Chris Brown and Rihanna.
Immediately after the photo was released, the Los Angeles Police Department all but confirmed its authenticity in a statement saying, "the Los Angeles Police Department Media Relations Section began receiving numerous inquiries about the release of a photograph associated with a domestic violence incident that occurred on February 8, 2009, involving entertainer Chris Brown. The photograph appeared on an entertainment website. The photograph has the appearance of one taken during an official Domestic Violence investigation."
This case isn't going away any time soon... hopefully Chris Brown will get more of a punishment than the usual celebrity slap-on-the-wrist of community service.
