A somber Chris Brown arrived at court on Wednesday afternoon in a black suit for his progress report hearing, and the troubled R&B star was given 90 days of rehab for anger management for violating his probation. Seeing as there were multiple reports that he was facing jail time for yet another alleged violent outburst, it looks like he got off easy yet again!
The probation department notified the judge that Brown threw objects during a rampage at the Malibu rehab facility where he was staying earlier this month, and they demanded that he leave after a little over two weeks there.
Prior to that Brown was arrested for felony assault in Washington D.C. after allegedly attacking a man outside of his hotel. It was already reported that Brown could receive up to four years in jail for the assault in D.C., but it seems like the incident at rehab was what really pushed the district attorney to come after Brown.
The probation department recommended live-in anger management rehab, and the judge agreed, so Brown was ordered to go to a court-approved facility for 90 days.
Brown must also submit to drug testing at the rehab facility and he must also take any prescriptions recommended by the rehab place, reports TMZ.
The judge is allowing Brown to fly to D.C. for court hearings regarding that case, but the judge is also demanding a report on the incident. Um wasn't this supposed to be what he was already doing? You know, before he got kicked out of rehab?
The D.A. wanted to put Brown behind bars for violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna, and it looks like they may get their wish eventually ... just not today.
