Chris Brown

In Jail for the Long Haul

3/15/2014 7:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0314_chris_brown_tmzChris Brown will probably spend the next month behind bars, and possibly a lot longer.

TMZ broke the story ... Chris was arrested and jailed Friday after getting thrown out of the Malibu rehab facility where he's been living for nearly 4 months, per judge's order.  The judge in the Rihanna case ordered Chris to stay at the rehab joint until April 28, when his D.C. assault case goes to trial.  But Chris broke the rules, was booted, and Sheriff's deputies hauled him to jail.

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, will appear in court Monday, trying to convince the judge to cut Brown a break and let him either go to another rehab facility or go on house arrest pending the D.C. trial.  That will be an uphill battle, given that this is the second rehab facility that booted Brown.

The D.C. trial is set for April 17.   Geragos has a pretty strong defense -- there are problems with the prosecution's case.  But if Chris is found guilty, he could end up in PRISON for breaking the law while on probation in the Rihanna case.

The stakes are high.  Brown has a lot to think about behind bars.

It's makes no sense to me when people don't serve time for their initial violent crimes only to end up doing serious time for much less serious probation violations.... Well let's see if Rhianna drops Drake and comes running to Chris Browns side because he's Co-dependent. If this doesn't jail stint doesn't wake him up nothing will!

He has already had more chances than he deserves. Forget all this medical psycho-bable. A lot of people have PTSD and other issues, but just because you get a diagnosis doesn't excuse your abhorrent behaviorl. He is a stupid, angry, self absorbed, woman beating qanimal who has proven time and time again he cannot follow societal rules and the law. It is time to keep his pathetic scrony ass in jail. He is a pitiful, disgusting animal so keep him locked up. Maybe then we will see how tough he is. He will be someones BITCh within a week, or better yet get into a fight and have his ass handed to him..... OO-RAH

You know its for the best. I think he should just get it over and done with. Who wants to live like that everything you do could land you in jail. Thats no way no one should want to live. Good luck Chris hang in there.

Oh, he is going to come out "inspired" having met some "wonderful" people raped by the system. He is going to have spent time with someone famous or rich and will be a changed man, getting his GED and inspired to write and compose about the "Injustices" in this world. It'll have been the "best thing that ever happened to him" blah, blah, blah.

Idk why Chris can't get it together...you would think the millions in loss income due to probation, rehab etc. which kept him from touring/performing shows would make him shape up but naaa...seems he doesn't care
