Chris Brown

D.A. Wants Him Jailed ...

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Brown would have gone to jail today if L.A. prosecutors had their way ... because they asked a judge to send him directly to the pokey.

Chris appeared for a hearing on the D.C. assault case, where he stands accused of beating up a guy last October.  The hearing was held by the judge in the Rihanna beating case, who will decide if Chris violated his probation by allegedly committing the assault.

Prosecutors asked the judge to throw Chris in jail immediately and set a probation violation hearing.  Prosecutors claim "Brown's violent behavior continues to increase in severity and frequency" and he poses "an increasing danger to society."

The D.A. claims they have now reviewed the D.C. case -- interviewing witnesses and examining evidence -- and they say there is probably cause to believe Chris is guilty as charged.

The judge, however, ruled Chris was better off completing his 90-day rehab for anger management than being thrown in jail, so he shut down prosecutors.

The judge said "no dice" so this story is irreverent.

How long is it going to take to put this dumb ass, woman beating, angry, wanna bee thug where he belongs, in jail with the other douch$bags who cannot control themselves and think that laws don't apply to them. Enough already, throw his ass in jail.

Gee, another celebrity who should go directly to jail gets off with no punishment where a normal person would have been thrown in jail a long time ago. You’d think you’d need half a brain to be a judge...if this moron believes the anger rehab is anything other than a ploy to keep Brown out of jail he doesn’t deserve to be a judge.

Just because Riahanna was a mouthy out of control **** and needed her bell rung, after assaulting a man first should have no bearing on this case.

I will say it again: Rehab is for people who HAVE problems, not people who ARE problems. Flush this turd down the drain before the toilet backs up all over the floor.

I have a feeling that TMZ has started to be sued a lot. I noticed the started using the word allegedly in almost every story that has an arrest or drugs involved.

There's no room for the likes of him in Cali jail. You have to be a mass murderer or serial rapist to serve any real time here. He's just a violent assault and batterer.
