Chris Brown

L.A. Probation Dept. NOT Impressed with Rehab

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown hopes his stint in rehab for anger management may help him dodge a bullet in the Rihanna probation case ... but our sources say probation officials see right through what he's trying to do.

Sources connected with the L.A. County Probation Dept. tell TMZ ... probation officials think Brown's violent outbursts have escalated and checking into a rehab facility now is "too little, too late."

The Probation Dept. is aggressively investigating last weekend's incident in Washington D.C. where Chris was arrested for assault.  As we first reported, probation officers interviewed Chris on Monday, hours before he checked himself into a Malibu rehab joint.

One source familiar with the case tells TMZ, "Probation is gunning for this guy.  They're embarrassed by what he's done over the last 2 years and they've had it."

We're told the die has already been cast ... Probation will submit a scathing report to the judge, who will decide whether to revoke Chris' probation.  If that happens, Brown could be sentenced to prison for as long as 4 years.

Yeah, they see through it. But, they will the paid-off, like the judge & court officials, and he will skate . . . just as all these AO's do.

I don't want to see anybody go to prison.

BUT -- if you are walking around punching people in the face, and can't stop -- what is the best result for society?

You always build this up, get out hopes up just like with LL but then retract and say nothing happened. I'll believe it when I see it

Chris Brown snubbed his nose at the judge and the probation department, and the judge and the probation department snubbed their nose at the public. Same laws and rules for everybody, or else it's not justice.

LA Probation Dept should change Chris rehab venue to prison-hab. I am sure Dr Bubba and his friends will be enough to give Chris one on one or gangbang therapy.

I have heard of anger management classes but never rehab for temper issues. He ditched a concert for this rehab stay. I think that shows a lack of responsibility and concern for others. Maybe that is how probation is seing it also, and that is why they are not impressed.


If he goes to prison for a while, he can really be like the thug he always wanted to be. He tries to come off very goody goody when he is in big trouble. Right after he nearly beat Rihanna to death and dumped her body on the curb, he started wearing little bow ties like he was some little choir boy type.


You usually don't get locked up in treatment unless you are some sloppy looking addict or freaky looking rebel. He is just some celebrity with violence issues.


Maybe he should have volunteered to build homes in Guatamala instead.

She should go to prison. Rehab is a joke and a hiding place for the rich and famous not to mention all the families who are hurt in the process because they seek treatment for their children believing that it would help them like it supposed should help the rich and famous.

Equality for the law must be demanded. Was it a poor man who beat his girlfriend up he would be in prison serving his time.
