KRON 4 – Singer Chris Brown was released early Monday from a Los Angeles County jail, authorities said.
Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputy Tony Moore told The Associated Press that Brown was released at 12:01 a.m. Monday, but he didn’t have any more details. Brown had been in custody since mid-March, when he was arrested after being expelled from a court-ordered rehab sentence for violating its rules.
And a judge last month ordered the R&B singer to remain in jail after he admitted he violated his probation by getting into an altercation outside a hotel in Washington, D.C., last year. In his May 9 decision, Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin sentenced the singer to serve an additional 131 days in jail, but he had been expected to get out much sooner.
Brandlin had sentenced Brown to serve a year in county jail but gave him credit for nearly eight months. The credits include time that the singer has spent in rehab and jail, as well as credits for good behavior while behind bars. Officials said at the time that Brown’s time in jail could be cut down even more drastically once sheriff’s officials start tallying his sentence and determine whether he’s eligible for early release. The Grammy-winning singer was on probation after he attacked pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend, hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards. In October, while on probation, Brown was accused of attacking a man outside a hotel in the nation’s capital in October. He was charged with misdemeanor assault.
OH, OHHHHHHHHH, UH OH OH OH OHHHHHHHHH Drake better watch his ass because Christopher Maurice Brown aka the Tappahannock TKO is back our here to literally and figuratively run it. Fresh outta rehab, 25, clear eyes, full heart, Rihanna single, can’t lose.
In all honesty, Drake had a nice long break from looking over his shoulder for Chris Brown but he’s gotten way, way too big for himself. De-linting himself at Raptor games, practically joining the huddle, breaking up with RiRi, dropping hits, I need scared Drake back ASAP. We want the bad rapper back, not the type you talk about at fancy dinner parties, the one you talk about publicly, he’s the one you want in your life, you need in your life! And that man is Chris Brown.
