Charges against Chris Brown stemming from a hit-and-run crash that took place in May have been dismissed. A judge dropped the charges yesterday, The Associated Press reports, after noting that the singer had reached a civil compromise with the other driver involved.

Brown was vocal on Twitter about the charges alleging that he failed to provide proof of insurance, and he pleaded not guilty to the charges. His lawyer said that he mistakenly gave the woman the wrong insurance, but that the $800 in damages was covered. 

In addition to the charges, Brown's probation for assaulting ex-girlfriend Rihanna was revoked during the court proceedings following the hit-and-run. The singer spent less than an hour in jail after turning himself in to be charged in the crash. 

Brown, who suffered a seizure over the weekend, recently announced that his upcoming album, X, could be his last.
