Although they seem to have reconciled, Chris Brown has just been charged with two felonies - assault and making criminal threats - in the alleged beating of his girlfriend Rihanna on Feb. 8.

Brown is set to appear in an LA court at approximately 3:30 P.M. this afternoon.

If convicted, Brown faces anywhere from probation to a maximum four years and eight months in state prison, DA spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons told People.

LA's FOX 11 News was able to get its hands on LAPD detective notes from a search warrant detailing the horrific assault against Rihanna.

This is how the events unfolded, according to FOX 11:

After Rihanna read a text message on Brown's phone from a woman, he tried to force Rihanna out of the car, but couldn't because she was wearing her seatbelt.

Brown then allegedly slammed Rihanna's head against her window, and when Rihanna turned to face him, he punched her.

The notes said blood spattered on Rihanna's clothing and the interior of the Lamborghini.

Rihanna also called her assistant, according to FOX 11, leaving a message saying, "I am on my way home. Make sure the cops are there when I get there."

Brown then reportedly replied, "You just did the stupidest thing ever. I'm going to kill you," and proceeded to punch and bite Rihanna. He allegedly put her in a headlock so long that she almost lost consciousness.

More to come on the results of Brown's court appearance.
