Chris Brown
just asked the judge in his assault case in Washington D.C. to give him a pass and NOT make him appear Monday in court so he can stay in inpatient anger management rehab.

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, just filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- asking the judge for the break.  D.C. criminal courts require a defendant's presence even in misdemeanor cases.

Brown is kind of between a rock and a hard place, because a California judge has ordered him to stay put in rehab for 90 days. 

Geragos says in the docs he reached out to the prosecutors to see if they were on board with Brown skipping the hearing, but he says he was told, no dice.

So Geragos has made his case.

If he was ordered to stay in rehab by a judge then he should stay put and they should waive his appearance in D.C.

One day when the other testy bean drops and he becomes a man, he will understand how much easier it is to just keep his hands to himself, STFU & be grateful, and just make music and money. Dumb azz.

He deserves no special treatment or breaks. He has continually proven he has anger issues- even well after his abuse of Rihanna. Make him scared Judge!!

Just put his punk ass in jail and let the inmates beat the anger out of him as he's bending over squealing like a pig, who's the bi*ch now.


Brown wouldn't be so cool and tough then.

D.C. is for politicians. Rappers and celebs aren't going to get the ride there. Send his ass to D.C.

Chris probably has Boderline Personality Disorder or is Biploar. Prison time is not the cure for that. He needs a proper evaluation or screening and psychiatric treatment. "Anger Management" counseling is not going to help him.

charley sheen, alec baldwin and chris brown should all take a long hard look at therapy, and use the opportunity in taking advantage of it……..living life angry without fully articulating where the anger is from or understanding the "why" is just plain depressing..!!!! money could never fill that void, there shouldn't be any "macho-ness " in seeking help for anger…GO and get better..!!!
