Chris Brown had a probation hearing yesterday for a progress report in the Rihanna case. Background: While on probation, Chris and his bodyguard got into an altercation in Washington DC, and he was arrested for felony assault. Chris was ordered to undergo “anger management rehab” in Malibu for two weeks. He did, and now he’s in “out-patient” rehab.
At his probation hearing yesterday, Chris was ordered back to rehab for 90 days, because of an incident that involved his mom!
Chris Brown went into a VIOLENT RAGE while in rehab earlier this month for his anger issues … TMZ has learned … throwing objects and breaking them … and we’ve learned the D.A. will use this and other incidents later today in court to make the case that he belongs in jail … NOW.
We’re told the rehab facility wanted him OUT after the incident … and that’s why he bailed after only 2 weeks.
Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … the L.A. County Probation Dept. is submitting information to the judge today about the incident, along with the criminal assault charge in Washington, D.C. We’re told the Probation Dept will ask the judge to order Chris into a live-in anger management program for a period of months.
They asked for a live-in anger management program, and they got it!
Chris Brown just got confined for 90 days … but not in jail … in rehab.
Brown and his lawyer, Mark Geragos, were just in court for a progress report in the Rihanna beating case. TMZ broke the story … the Probation Dept. notified the judge that Brown flew into yet another violent rage while he was in a Malibu rehab joint for anger management, and was thrown out of the facility after only 2 weeks. The Probation Dept. recommended live-in anger management rehab.
The judge agreed with Probation, and ordered Brown to check into a facility for 90 days, and the facility must be in L.A. County and approved by Probation.
The judge is letting Chris juggle his criminal cases and will let him fly to D.C. for court hearings on his criminal assault case. Brown must also submit to drug testing at the rehab facility. He must also take any prescriptions recommended by the rehab place.
The judge also wants a report on the D.C. incident … something that could result in Chris getting his probation yanked in the Rihanna case … which could then result in prison time.
I don’t know what it is about people like Chris Brown (Justin Bieber, you listening?), it it self-entitlement? Were they told YES too many times, and now they don’t know what it’s like to not get what they want? I think that Chris is in for a long, painful road ahead, because he never seems to learn his lesson. It looks like Lindsay Lohan’s been “good” for a while, so maybe there’s hope? I think Justin’s right behind Chris.
