Chris Brown’s probation revoked, but was not taken into custody

A judge in LA yesterday revoked Chris Brown’s probation after the L.A County District Attorney filed legal documents asking the judge to revoke it andchris%20brownScreen%20Shot%202013-07-15%20at%202.49.42%20PM immediately remand Chris Brown into custody, according to a report by TMZ. The D.A asked for the revocation based on charges being filed against Brown in connection with a hit-and-run in May but fortunately for Chris Brown, even though his probation was revoked, he wasn’t taken into custody, which is sometimes the case.

 

TMZ reports:

The judge just revoked Chris Brown’s probation in the Rihanna beating case, but the singer will remain a free man … for now.

Brown showed up at court today to fight the L.A. County D.A.’s motion to revoke his probation in the wake of hit-and-run charges stemming from a car accident but the judge granted the motion anyway, paving the way for a probation violation hearing in August.

If the judge determines Chris violated his probation, the singer could be sentenced to 4 years in prison. In the meantime, Brown has been released on his own recognizance.
