Brandy enjoying the Baron Davis and Paul Pierce Celebrity Basketball Game
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that officials in the Los Angeles City Attorney's office are split over whether to prosecute Brandy for a fatal car accident last December.

Brandy's Range Rover rear-ended a car, triggering a multi-car accident, which resulted in the death of a 38-year-old woman. One source says there was a "conflict" in the City Attorney's office over whether Brandy should be prosecuted at all. The charge on the table, we're told, is misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter.

We're told prosecutors are waiting on technical data that will measure the speed of Brandy's vehicle on impact. The data will help prosecutors determine if the singer tried to brake before impact. The tests are being conducted by a London based firm.

When the results are returned, the City Attorney will make a decision. One source says, "At this point it could go either way."
From what I know about police investigations, it's amazing that they are getting these tests done by a London based firm for a case out of L.A. They are either really searching for a reason to prosecute her or prolonging the dismissal of their case. I can't image that the police department or city attorney's office has that type of money to spend on every traffic accident and this is a misdemeanor charge, not a felony. I think she should held accountable but it doesn't take a grand inquisition!
