Chris Brown faces jail time, judge revokes probation
A Los Angeles judge revoked Chris Brown’s probation Thursday after he learned the R&B singer had traveled without prior consent and was on the scene at a nightclub where five people were shot and wounded.
Brown, who was at the hearing with his mother and girlfriend, was not taken into custody, but he was ordered back to court on March 20.
At the afternoon session, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin asked the probation department to look into the shooting and whether there were any problems involving the Grammy-winner, according to the Associated Press.
The shooting occurred during Brown’s private performance at a birthday bash in the Fiesta Nightclub in San Jose on Sunday. He was performing his song, “Loyal,” when “an altercation … resulted in gunshots,” Entertainment Weekly reported.
Following the shooting, Brown Tweeted, “I’m 100,” letting fans know he was uninjured, according to Rolling Stone.
Los Angeles district attorney spokesman Jane Robison told the Los Angeles Times that Brown violated a provision that barred him from leaving Los Angeles County.
In addition, Brandlin said Brown still needs to complete 200 of 1,000 hours of community service
