A judge has revoked Chris Brown‘s probation again. This time, the judgement stems from Brown’s nightclub incident. Brown traveled to San Jose, California without getting permission from his probation officer. According to the parameters of his probation, Brown must get permission whenever he leaves Los Angeles. The R&B singer also had 200 hours of community service left to perform in just over a week. This judgement had nothing to do with the nightclub shooting directly, because Brown had nothing to do with the incident. His probation was revoked because he wasn’t supposed to be at the nightclub. The singer’s girlfriend, Karrueche Tran, was in court with him today. His mother, Joyce Hawkins, was there as well. Brown was released on his own recognizance, but he will have to appear in court on March 20th. 

Brown was just eight days away from completing his probation term stemming from his 2009 assault case involving Rihanna. According to E! News, Brown just told his probation officer that he was “focused on getting everything taken care of and being a good citizen by following all of the rules.” Brown’s probation report also revealed he was properly taking his prescription medication, going to his therapy sessions, and learning how to control his anger impulses. On the other hand, his probation officer wrote about Brown’s decision making, “Though he has shown the ability to be compliant during long stretches of his probation grant, he continues a pattern of making choices that are counterproductive in his ability to be successful on probation.” 

The report mentioned Brown’s MTV Video Music Awards pre-party last year in which Suge Knight was rushed to the hospital, after being shot six times. “There is also a concern that when he performs or attends at some of his public events, people will get shot or seriously injured.” The report recommended a six month extension on Chris Brown’s probation. This is the third time Brown has had his probation revoked. In 2013, Brown was charged with a hit-and-run accident, and a misdemeanor assault charge. The hit-and-run accident was later dismissed, but he was ordered to a rehab center following his assault charge. Unfortunately, he was kicked out of the rehab facility last March.
