As cute as Chris Brown's pet monkey is, it's definitely been attracting some unwanted attention to Chris' life.

The singer, 28, is facing a criminal case from the Los Angeles City Attorney's office after a California Department of Fish and Wildlife investigation found that he never got a permit for his pet monkey, Fiji.

Brown could face jail again for not having a permit for his pet capuchin monkey.

It's required by law to have a specific permit to keep a monkey in California, as the state does not allow residents to keep them as domestic pets. Some of Breezy's followers voiced concern about dangers of the three-year-old being next to the exotic Capuchin monkey and called up the California Department of Fish and Wildlife to report the pop star. Brown reportedly complied when officials came to his house to search for the animal, which remains in good health.

Radon is measured in picocuries per liter (pCi/L) and the EPA has identified 4 pCi/L as a recommended action level. Radon levels in the outdoors are usually harmless; however, radon can build up indoors to unsafe levels.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos has since said he thought it was "absurd" of the City Attorney to 'spend taxpayer money on investigating monkey business'.

The case will be forwarded to the Los Angeles City Attorney for the next step of the process but a spokeswomen has confirmed the report has not be turned in yet.

According to sources close to TMZ, Chris Brown could be charged with having a restricted species without a permit, a misdemeanor, that carries a maximum of 6 months in jail.

A number of people weren't too happy about Chris allowing the animal near his daughter, because they thought it could posed a risk to her.
