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.

How about picking up some trash on the side of the road or wipping off the graffiti on his house walls and someone SIGN his paper work (WINK WINK) would have been more productive than "rehab"

They shouldn't be! He isn't doing this to help himself or others. He is only doing it to try and make himself look better. He doesn't care or even want to change. Hopefully the DA will see past this game. I mean really go to rehab for yourself and not after you do dumb ****. Not afterwards only in hopes of getting out of trouble. So sick of fake celebs running to rehab to simply avoid trouble. It's never sincere.

He's always in trouble when he's dating his second choice. He should just be single, get over his ex, and go to jail like someone without money would.

Maybe while he was sitting in jail during the course of that 24 hours he realized it was something he needed to do. Him going to rehab has nothing do with him wanting to get out jail time or this case. That was a personal decision that he made and I think it will do him good. So how about you people stop downing him and worry about your selves because I guarantee that half of you have done something just as bad if not worse than he has.

all about the money    

So ultimately it comes down to the star struck judge pool of LA County. Grats CB you will get to walk and if you play it right you might even be able to get an aoplogy out of the judge when they bend down to kiss celeb arse once again. Kudos to probation for not falling for it though.

From the other times that he's been arrest after the Rihanna incident why didn't no one force him into rehab as part of a punishment like they did with Lindsay Lohan? He obviously thought he could control his anger and thought people were just out to get him!!! It's never too late to get help no matter what it's for!!! He's still a very young man
