It looks like Chris Brown will be spending the next month behind bars. After the ‘Fine China’ singer was thrown out of rehab and jailed on March 14, an L.A. judge on March 17 ordered Chris to remain in police custody until his probation violation hearing on April 23.
An L.A. judge is cracking down on Chris Brown, refusing to grant the singer his freedom after he was kicked out of rehab for a second time and sent to jail on March 14. The judge was especially worried about a shocking comment Chris made regarding guns and knives during his latest stint in an anger management rehab facility. Here’s what we know.
Chris Brown Jailed For One Month After Gun Comments — Singer Remains In Custody
The judge had ordered Chris to stay in rehab while he determined whether the singer had violated his probation in the 2009 Rihanna assault case. So when Chris was thrown out of rehab for a second time on March 14, the fed up judge had Chris arrested almost immediately.
In a court hearing on March 17, the judge denied Chris’ request to be released from jail, saying the X artist had an “inability to stay out of trouble.” The judge also said that he was very concerned about a troubling statement Chris made in rehab: “I am good at using guns and knives.” Yikes!
Chris will remain in jail until his probation violation hearing in Los Angeles on April 23, which will take place after a D.C. jury decides if the singer is guilty of assaulting a man in Washington, D.C. in October, 2013, TMZ reports. If Chris is convicted of the D.C. assault, he could be sentenced to up to four years in prison for violating his probation in the Rihanna case.
Chris Brown Back In Jail
Chris was picked up by the LA County Sheriff’s Department on March 14, and they released this statement to HollywoodLife.com:
Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies were made aware of a warrant for the arrest of Suspect Chris Brown on Friday, March 14, 2014. At about 2:00PM, Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s deputies arrested Suspect Brown for the warrant at a location he was staying at in the city of Malibu. Mr. Brown was cooperative when taken into custody. He is being held without bail at the Inmate Reception Center of the Los Angeles County jail in downtown Los Angeles. The warrant was issued related to assault with a deadly weapon and criminal threats crimes which occurred on February 7, 2009, in the City of Los Angeles. The incidents were investigated by the Los Angeles Police Department and prosecuted by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The warrant was issued for a probation violation related to his conviction.
Chris was thrown out of rehab after he reportedly violated three of the facility’s policies, according to TMZ. He reportedly refused to submit to a random drug test, he did not stay at least two feet away from every woman in the facility, and he slammed rehab during a group therapy session.
