Chris Brown is now at the center of a new criminal investigation but this time he’s the victim.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ
… when Chris was jailed for leaving rehab back in April and taken
across the country to Washington D.C. for his hearing on assault
charges, one of his first stops was San Bernardino County Jail.

Chris was only there for a day or so, but procedure required a jail ID. When Chris left, his ID was left
with the jailers.
Fast forward to this week … when someone tried to sell the ID online
for $10,000. Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, got wind of it and went to the
San Bernardino Sheriff’s Dept. and said “What the F***?”

The Sheriff’s Dept. launched an investigation and traced the ID to
someone in the area. We’ve learned cops seized the ID and grilled the
guy, who insists he got the ID from a friend who got it from a friend.

Cops are trying to figure out how the ID got out of police custody and whether a has been committed.
