Chris Brown will stay in jail until April 23 … he was SHUT DOWN in court Monday afternoon in his bid to win release.
Chris was arrested after getting booted from rehab Friday. The judge had ordered him to stay in rehab while he decided whether Brown violated his probation in the Rihanna case. The judge had Chris arrested almost immediately after the rehab facility kicked him out.
The judge said Chris had an “inability to stay out of trouble.” Judge Hizzoner was especially concerned at a statement Chris made at the rehab joint, “I am good at using guns and knives.”
The judge wants Chris in the slammer until a D.C. jury decides if Chris committed criminal assault in an unrelated case. That trial is set for April 17 and should only last a few days.
The L.A. judge will hold a probation violation hearing on April 23, and if Chris is convicted in D.C. he’s in big trouble. Worst case scenario … he could be sentenced to 4 years in prison for violating probation in the Rihanna case. One of the conditions — obey all laws.
