Chris Brown had his probation revoked today by a Los Angeles judge, stemming from his assault of former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.
Brown wasn’t booked, but instead was released on his own recognizance until a future court date.
The 24-year-old singer was involved in an alleged hit-and-run incident in May that prompted the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office to seek revocation of the five-year probation he was placed on after pleading guilty to assaulting Rihanna.
Brown was released on his own recognizance and was ordered to return to court in August.
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office had filed court documents asking a judge to revoke Brown’s probation, after the singer allegedly left the scene after rear-ending a woman’s Mercedes-Benz in May.
The Mercedes driver, Olga Gure-Kovalenko, claimed that Brown refused to hand over his driver’s license, registration and insurance information after the accident.
Brown was with his other on-and-off girlfriend Karreuche Tran at the time.
Legal documents filed by prosecutors claimed that Brown ‘willfully and unlawfully’ broke the law in the hit-and-run incident.
If the judge revokes Brown’s probation following the August hearing, he faces four years in prison.
Chris Brown, 24, took to Twitter just before the hearing, praying things would go well.
He tweeted, “Pray! I did everything I was suppose to do during the so called hit n (sic) run, I provided the correct info. There were no injuries or damages. C’mon!! …I hope people can actually see the truth.”
