Following his expulsion on Friday from his Malibu treatment center, Chris Brown was apprehended by LA County Sheriffs and remains in county jail indefinitely. The singer violated the very particular deal he had made with the sentencing judge from his 2009 conviction for assaulting Rihanna when he was involuntarily removed from his rehab facility yesterday. No bail is set, and with his court appearance not scheduled until April 17th in DC for his October assault charge number two, it would appear he will be staying put at least until then, or perhaps even longer. After four months in rehab, Chris Brown is now incarcerated in downtown LA indefinitely.
Speculation still surrounds the reasons for Brown’s dismissal from his treatment center yesterday. Some sources have quelled suspicion that drugs and violence were involved, which bodes well for the notoriously bad-tempered crooner, and some have whispered possibilities of Brown fraternizing with the center’s staff the culprit. Neither of these theories are grounded in any authenticity as of yet, but seen as the center itself has yet to make any official comment, interested imaginations have only been fueled further.
Brown had already successfully finished the original 90 days assigned to him by the judge presiding over his highly publicized domestic violence case, in which he battered his ex-girlfriend Rihanna to the shock and horror of fans who had always seen him in a harmless pretty boy sort of light. After his most recent fist pummeling in DC last October when he and his bodyguard were charged with beating a man outside of the W Hotel, the judge revised his sentence and decided Brown should simply stay at the anger management facility until his newest case in DC had concluded. Instead of a cushy Malibu all-inclusive treatment center, Chris Brown has stupefyingly opted for indefinite incarceration instead.
Brown’s upcoming case in DC, against a plaintiff who claims the singer lost his temper (again) and struck him in multiplicity, will undoubtedly be affected by this newest development in the singer’s saga of misbehaving. The judge could easily sentence the R&B heartthrob to more jail time, especially considering Brown seems incapable of making a serious attempt at allowing rehab to help him. This means it could be a while before Chris Brown is no longer living life behind bars.
Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, has already scheduled a hearing with a LA judge on Monday in a potentially futile attempt to spring Brown from the County Jails clutches. The only remaining options, according to Brown’s previous conviction, is either another rehab center or house arrest. Seen as Brown has been expelled from not one, but two treatment centers already, it seems highly unlikely the judge will even ponder sending the behaviorally challenged star to another doomed attempt. House arrest, furthermore, would appear far too lenient in lieu of recent aggravations, so jail seems poised to remain the suitable and warranted solution.
With only one month remaining to resolve his pending charges, Brown has ensured the tedious time go by as slowly and painfully as possible. He has ditched his swanky seaside pad for a small cement square with no windows or privacy. At least being indefinitely incarcerated in jail will prevent Chris Brown from getting into any more trouble, maybe.
