Chris Brown -- Guys and Close Calls

8/26/2009 8:28 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

How's this for chatter, Your Honor? Chris Brown may have violated his probation just hours after he was sentenced ... but a technicality will probably save him.

The probation report states that Brown must "abstain from the use of all alcoholic beverages and stay out of places where they are the chief item of sale."

Brown was at Guys and Dolls nightclub last night in West Hollywood, partying away. Guys and Dolls sells food, but its chief item of sale is liquor.

But here's Brown's saving grace. In her sentencing order, the judge did not mention the restriction. We're told the judge trumps the probation department, so Brown is probably in the clear by the skin of his teeth.

He did get a pretty hard sentence. Instead of rotting in a jail where he could technically be let out on good behavior and where he could continue to work he got 1400....YES 1400 hours of Labor intensive work. Thats not public service announcements, thats cleaning the streets and doing work. Also 5 years of probation, this monster is bound to repeat and be thrown into jail. This guy really disgusts me. How anyone could have a shred of pateince with this guy is beyon me. I hope in ten years he's on some Celebrity Death Match only by then we really be killing B-Celebs for reality entertainment instead of clay!

Going partying is a great way to show the world how sorry you are for what you did and how very, very deeply you understand that girlfriend battering is a serious, serious crime. I'm sure that like every other woman beater, this one thinks it's all her fault. If she hadn't annoyed him so he wouldn't have "lost control", right?

Wrong. Those guys don't lose control, they always know what they do. They feel entitled and they feel so sorry for themselves. He'll go on to abuse someone else.

Linda - are you a self-hating woman, or are you actually a woman-hating man? Abuse has no place in any relationship. You don't like your partner, you split. That part of so called "black culture" that is woman-degrading, which is in reality just as much a part of white "culture" although you don't write brain-dead songs about it, is just a sorry excuse for men to never grow up and become men. Real men don't abuse women and children.

I don't feel sorry for this idiot or anyone else who beats his partner. No hero in my book, just sleazy.

I am so tired of hearing about how much wrong Chris Brown is doing. If people want to judge him, they should judge him for beating her up. Other than that people should'nt hav anything else negative to say.....

Well, if he drove when he left the bar, surely he'd know that was a violation of probation.

cam you tell me why is it that Harvey has such a hard time with Chris Brown? Yes he made a mistake. He is young and just because he is out enjoying his life, doesn't have any bearing on his court case. He doesn't have to stop living. Give him a break. Most likely Rihanna isn't as innocent as everyone is making her out to be. I don't condone violence, especially domestic abuse, but he is entitled to get on with his life just like she is.

No skin. The judges word counts. But remember he has a progress report, this won't count to his favour.
