Chris Brown, who was arrested last week for violating his probation by being kicked out of rehab, has been ordered to remain in jail until his probation hearing next month.
A judge denied the 24-year-old R&B star bail on Monday, March 17. The singer was seen dressed in an orange jail uniform and in handcuffs in a Los Angeles courthouse, while his mother watched, crying. Brown mouthed "I Love You" to her was he was taken back into custody, OTRC.com has learned.
Brown was detained on Friday. Brown had been undergoing court-mandated treatment for anger management, bipolar disorder and other issues at rehab center in Malibu, California. Probation officials said he was discharged because he failed to "comply with the rules and regulations" of his program.
Brown's probation, which stems from his 2009 attack against Rihanna, was then revoked because a judge had told him last month that if he left rehab, it would mark a violation. He had been ordered to remain in treatment until April 17, when he is set to be tried on a misdemeanor assault case in Washington, D.C.
Why Chris Brown was kicked out of rehab
On Monday, more details about the reason for his dismissal were revealed. His lawyer said that the treatment facility officials allege that:
1. Brown "rubbed elbows" with a female "client of the program."
2. Brown made a "provocative" statement during a meeting -- which the judge later revealed to be: "I'm good at using guns and knives."
3. Brown refused to take a drug test. His lawyer said the singer took two tests that day and tested negative.
What's next for Chris Brown?
The singer's lawyer argued in court that Brown has the right to be released from jail to attend his Washington D.C. trial on April 17. The judge ordered Brown to remain behind bars without bail until a probation violation hearing on April 23.
Brown had been booted out of a rehab facility before -- he had initially begun inpatient treatment voluntarily and was kicked out after he threw a rock through his mother's car window. He was then ordered by a judge to return to rehab and also perform 1,000 hours of community labor.
