Chris Brown narrowly escaped jail on Monday after a Los Angeles judge shut down prosecutors’ requests to put the singer behind bars for violating probation.
The Kiss Kiss hitmaker was in court for a hearing into his 2009 Rihanna assault case, when his possible probation violation relating to a fight outside a Washington, D.C. hotel was raised.
The prosecutors argued that Brown’s violent behavior “continues to increase in severity and frequency” adding he poses an “increasing danger to society”.
The District Attorney’s office representatives claimed there is probable cause to believe Brown is guilty as charged of beating up a man in Washington, D.C., according to
But the judge, who also oversaw Brown’s assault trial after he beat up ex-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, ruled against the prosecutors and insisted the R&B star was better off completing his ongoing 90-day rehab for anger management.
Brown wasn’t the only R&B star in court in Los Angeles on Monday – Cee Lo Green was also there for a routine hearing in his felony drug case.
