Breaking News: Chris Brown Escapes Jail Time, But Ordered To Stay In Los Angeles
R&B singer Chris Brown just escaped being sent jail … at least for now. The troubled star and his attorney Mark Geragos were inside a Los Angeles courtroom moments ago, and HipHollywood was seated behind them as the terms of Brown’s current probation were modified.
The pop star has been ordered to spend 90 days at a treatment facility approved by his probation department. Except for a trip to DC on Monday for court hearings on his criminal assault case, the singer is not allowed to leave LA until those 90 days of rehabilitation are completed. Brown has also been ordered to complete 24 hours of community service a week, be available for random drug testing and take prescribed medication.
Brown’s girlfriend Karrueche Tran was also by his side during the hearing. Our reporter on the scene managed to snap the above flick of the couple exiting the hearing.
Brown is due back in court on December 16 at 2 p.m.
