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.

I'll believe it when I see it, TMZ. You cackled like this each and every time Lindsay violated her probation and NOTHING ever happened to her.

The "die" may not be cast, but the "dye" could be!

Oh Pleeezzz. They can see through Brown's games but they couldn't see through Lohan's? If they violate his probation after giving LiLo so many breaks, there will be race riots in southern Cali.

Wahhhhh hoooooo jail for the ignorant fool. God I love to hear that. I wonder if he'll stay in rehab or now that he's looking at for sure jail time he comes out of rehab to prepare for jail. That piece of crap will die in jail. He'll never get out. Hes to stupid.

As much as he deserves prison time, I wouldn't hold my breath on that happening. Chris has one of the best lawyers money can buy and these celebs dodge the bullet every time.

The whole rehab to avoid being incarcerated by a Hollywood celebrity has been played out.

Never works. These cretins need some serious prison time.

We've seen this before - the last time the probation dept. try to sent this POS where he belong, a judge just ignored their recommendation and let him go.

Not expecting anything remotely different to happen here.

Surely Chris Brown isn't an embarrassment after how well Lohan played the California court system. At least he's been steadily employed and paying his taxes.

WTF    

Still no chance he'll spend any real time in jail. He's a multimillionaire. Many people depend on him for their income so they will be hurt if he spends any real time in jail. While he may be sentenced to jail time he'll be out in hours because of overcrowding or whatever just like LiLo was. The justice system in California is a joke. This guy needs for somebody to just whip his ass to within an inch of his life. Then maybe he'll straighten up. Until then he's pretty much teflon.
