Chris Brown has got himself in big trouble. He ended up in jail when he and his bodyguard assaulted a man outside W Hotel in Washington D.C.
This now means trouble for his probation. The arrest could have serious legal consequences for Brown, since he is serving probation for the felony domestic violence conviction relating to his 2009 attack on former girlfriend Rihanna.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office is not commenting Monday about Brown’s arrest, but prosecutors have been aggressive in the past year in monitoring Brown’s compliance with rules of his California probation. They have twice filed probation violation charges against the singer this year, resulting in an additional 1,000 hours of community labor being added to his sentence for the beating of Rihanna.
The next step in Los Angeles is for Brown’s probation officer to prepare a report on the arrest for Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin, who had already ordered Brown to appear in his court on November 20 for a probation status hearing.
Police say Brown and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy attacked a man with their fists outside the W Hotel in downtown Washington at 4:25 a.m. Sunday.
Probation rules require Brown to stay out of all legal trouble. Even an arrest that does not lead to a conviction could result in a probation violation charge.
