ABC just released a longish statement and explanation of what happened when Chris Brown busted a window at "Good Morning America." Worth reading the whole thing...

"Roberts asked Brown about the situation two more times; Brown seemed increasingly agitated as their conversation progressed. After the interview, Brown performed "Yeah 3x," the lead single off his new album, "F.A.M.E."

"The moment the song ended, he let loose. Brown stormed off stage and went back to his dressing room. Then he came back down the hall, still backstage, and stopped upon seeing the person who produced the segment. Brown didn't have his shirt on.

"The show's hair and makeup staff said they had called security because they heard loud noises coming from Brown's dressing room. It was then discovered that a window had been smashed in Brown's dressing room.

"The thick glass was destroyed. By the time the smashed window was discovered, Brown and his team had left the building. Paparazzi photos show the singer shirtless outside "GMA's" Times Square studio.

"ABC News released a statement following the incident: "As always, we ask questions that are relevant and newsworthy, and that's what we did in this interview with Mr. Brown." In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault stemming from an altercation with Rihanna and was sentenced to 5 years probation and six months of community service. His probation was downgraded in February to a restraining order mandating that he stay 10 yards away from Rihanna.
