Chris Brown calls himself “Christopher” when he”s scared … at least judging by the 911 call that was placed moments after the singer totaled his Porsche in a paparazzi chase last month.
Minutes after the February 9 crash, a witness called 911 … and told the operator Brown”s car had smashed into a wall in an alley in Beverly Hills.
The operator asked to speak with Brown (who identified himself as “Christopher”) … and the singer explained how the paparazzi had been chasing him in another vehicle … and dangerously cut him off.
Brown says the paparazzi “blocked me off and stopped so I had to swerve” … causing him to lose control and crash.
Brown says he was not injured in the accident … but claims the paparazzi responsible for the incident fled the scene before emergency responders arrived.
As for the police investigation into the accident — law enforcement tells us, it”s case closed … cops couldn”t prove the paps were involved.
