Chris Brown gets 90 days in rehab - watch probation hearing (Video)

11/20/2013 by OnTheRedCarpet.com Staff

Chris Brown was ordered to 90 days of anger management treatment at a residential rehab facility during his probation hearing in Los Angeles on Wednesday, Nov. 20, OTRC.com has learned.

It was also reported that the 24-year-old singer was discharged from a rehab center where he was previously receiving treatment after throwing a rock through his mother's car window.

A letter from the unnamed facility was included in Brown's probation report, according to The Associated Press. The report was given to Superior Court Judge James Brandlin and Los Angeles prosecutors.

Brown reportedly threw the rock through the car window, which shattered, after a joint counseling session with his mother on Nov. 10, the wire service reports. The incident violated the agreement Brown made when he voluntarily entered treatment for anger management.

In addition to rehab, Judge Brandlin ordered Brown to submit to drug testing and the singer must now perform at least 24 hours of community labor a week. The singer must also take any medication prescribed by his doctor and has to remain in Los Angeles, unless he must attend legal proceedings in Washington, D.C.

Brown, who appeared in court for the probation hearing, was arrested in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 27 after he got into an altercation with another man. Brown was arraigned in court on a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from that arrest.

The singer's probation, which is from his 2009 felony assault case involving then-girlfriend Rihanna, was not revoked, so he will stay out of jail. Brown and his attorney, Mark Geragos, agreed to the new terms of the singer's probation.

The courts will prepare a report on the incident in Washington, D.C., and their findings will be presented to a Los Angeles judge at a hearing on Dec. 16.

The singer had his parole revoked earlier this year after he was charged with hit-and-run in a car crash case in Los Angeles, but it was reinstated in mid-August after a civil compromise was reached. Brown was then sentenced to 1,000 hours of community labor.
