Setback Central: Chris Brown Gets His Probation Revoked in Rihanna Case

Earlier this week, Chris Brown had to deal with a shooting at one of his promo nightclub shows in San Jose which wounded five people, and now this: Because of his presence at those shootings, his probation in the Rihanna case has been revoked by an L.A. judge yesterday (Jan. 15) and his probation officials think he should serve some time.

Brown attended a progress report check in, where the judge listed all violations in his probation, including the San Jose shootings last week, the fact that Brown left the county for San Jose (which is a violation of his probation), and another shooting at an event hosted by Brown at 1OAK during VMA weekend last August.

Even though the judge brought up there’s no evidence of Brown being involved with the shootings, his probation officer told the judge that there’s concern of a potential shooting when and wherever he performs, as he said, "There is also concern that when he performs or attends at some of his public events, people will get shot or seriously injured." The P.O. officer also brought up the fact that Brown has been locked up twice (for the D.C. assault and damage to his mother’s car in 2013), and has been focused more on his career than his community service obligations, hence, deserving of serving time in prison.

A formal hearing will be held on March 20.
