Chris Brown

D.A. Wants Him Jailed ...

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.

I'm so sick of this mess, and everyone trying to throw Chris in jail for what happened to Rhianna. Let's just be honest. This has NOTHING to do with this latest incident, and EVERYTHING to do with what happened years ago and they're STILL trying to get him for that. If the judge see this young man can benefit from rehab, other than jail then let it go. #GTFOHWTBS

You no tmz! When I read about the proclivities of chris brown,bieber,and lohan,as adults it seem's like we have to take just a lil blame.I say that because,for so long we allowed them to get away with their reckless behavior,and now that it's annoying us,we feel the need to punish em,I guess it's never to late to pay for your actions,but it's a lesson for us as well,deal with our young adults quickly and forcefully.

I seriously don't see his appeal. I wonder if the judge was a woman. Maybe then chris brown would show his hatred for women and get locked up.

Nothing was was ever going happen. Chris' attorney and the court orchestrated that piece of drama. (notice how TMZ doesn't give the names of the judges and DA anymore. Because those bastards are afraid that they'll be nailed for their preferential treatments of celebrity if a search is performed... provided those potheads in California ever wake up and revolt that the average person is being screwed--because they didn't give to the reelection coffers of those snakes in the courts.)
It's called the funnel effect. That's why Chris' attorney is paid the big bucks.
Feed the sharks.
