Chris Brown Probation Revoked After Night Club Shooting; ‘New Flame’ Singer Serves Six More Months in Community Service
Just when we taught everything’s going smoothly with Chris Brown, his probation in the Rihanna assault case just got revoked! Read on to learn more about this scoop.
According to online channels, the judge had revoked the “New Flame” singer’s probation after Brown traveled without the court’s approval for a concert. To make matters worse, the singer failed to complete his community service on time.
The probation revocation, however, was not a total downfall for Brown as he was still allowed to remain free until the March 20, 2015 hearing.
According to MailOnline, Karrueche Tran’s boyfriend got his probation revoked because he performed at a night club in San Jose last Jan. 11, 2015 without seeking permission. Brown has been ordered to stay in Los Angeles until he fulfilled his court-mandated community service. Coming to his defense, lawyer Mark Geragos explained that his office “incorrectly advised” the singer, saying that he didn’t need permission to fulfill his prior commitments. The judge believed Geragos’ explanation but still revoked his probation.
His probation has also been revoked because he failed to complete the mandated 1,000 hours of community work by January. The “Loyals” singer was said to have roughly 200 hours left.
On-and-off girlfriend Karrueche Tran was beside Brown the entire court hearing, squeezing his hand for occasional support. His mother, Joyce Hawkins, was also present.
The probation officer suggested that Brown’s probation be extended for another six months, saying that he “continues a pattern of making choices that are counterproductive.” The report was made following the shooting incident that occurred after his MTV Video Music Awards pre-party performance last August.
Do you think it was fair for the judge to revoke his probation? Should Chris Brown extend his probation for six more months? Sound off in the comments below.
