Chris Brown’s Probation Revoked By Judge


A Los Angeles judge has revoked Chris Brown’s probation after his Oct. 27 arrest in Washington for allegedly assaulting another man.

Brown, 24, appeared in court Monday for the hearing, however, he was not ordered to custody because he is already in a court-ordered residential rehab program. He must return for another hearing on February 10 that will determine whether he will be jailed after his three month rehab program is completed.

The singer has anger management problem and a drug abuse issues, according to a probation report obtained by CNN.

His current rehab facility says the R&B singer “has made significant progress” since the start of the program on November 20.

“The clinical and medical team have witnessed very positive change in Mr. Brown since his psychotropic medications have been changed and he has been taken off medical marijuana,” the program director said. “His ability to emotionally regulate himself has improved markedly.”

The report submitted to Judge James Brandlin was a major factor in the decision not to take the Grammy-award winning artist into custody the same day as his hearing.

“I do want to emphasize that I’m pleased that he’s doing well in the program in this particular progress report and for that reason the court is not inclined to take Mr. Brown into custody,” Brandlin said Monday afternoon.

Brown has another court hearing on January 8 for the assault case in Washington.

His legal problems stem back to his 2009 assault on his then-girlfriend Rihanna. He plead guilty to the felony assault and has been on probation since.
