Not violent, per se, but high strung. they're prone to anxiety and fear, which, in the case of many dogs, will present itself as aggression. Unfortunately, it's just a breed trait, so they're more prone to anxious/fearful agression than say...a cardigan corgi.
The reason a lot of chihuahuas are bratty is the same reason Pitbulls have a bad rep: the owners. People that own chihuahuas are more likely to not only pamper them, but not discipline them properly or train them right because they are tiny and cute. They also have the tendency to latch onto one person and not really care about everyone else, but many will be fearful of everyone else.
I actually own two chihuahua mixes, so I know they can be great dogs when you take the time to train them, but they can be annoying little snots when you dont.
