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.

Holy moly macaroni     

Finally they give a celebrity a serious consequence. There's a billion of celebrities that have escaped jail time because of their name so it's about time the system starts to take act out the way they would on anyone.

If Zimmerman can be a free man and walk the streets and you all love and support him, sure Chris Brown must be a free man too.. Be honest with yourselves there is something wrong with your conscience if you feel the need to hate a suffering sick human being but God knows what's in your hearts if George Zimmerman was forgiven then whats difficult with forgiving Chris Brown?? Ask yourself pray that God can give us wisdom!! We never cease to pray for the weak!! But with other the need to ridicule comes in and does that make you feel better that sickening...

I thought the meds had 'fixed' him?! So much for that! He is talented but not very bright. He comes across like a total idiot in interviews!

Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, will appear in court Monday, trying to fidn and convince an unethical Californian celebrity judge to cut Brown another break and let him either go to another rehab facility or go on house arrest. Finding and convincing a crooked judge for hire isn't the problem, but it's going cost you. Their rates go up, up, up, up with every bend and twist of the law not afforded the general public (who aren't women, white or represented by a connected lawyer)

So, he's obviously not bipolar or the mess would work. I think the judge should also punish the doctor and lawyer who said he was bipolar. He just has an attitude problem like some other self entitled famous people who flock to California because of their overcrowded jails. If they start outsourcing the rich/famous would think twice about their crimes.

Everyone saying "He deserves this he deserves that I hate him" Who the **** are you to say what someone deserves you ain't God. Shut the **** up! Y'all still salty over some **** that happened in 2009 or an alleged hit and ran when we saw he gave the girl his info or an alleged club fight (which drake was involved in) but no one hates him. Oh no or maybe him allegedly punching a guy in DC for trying to get on his bus (we won't know because prosecutors are holding the tape) yet Chris has several witnesses. Wtf are y'all mad about cause all that **** is sketchy! Y'all need to get over it as if you've never made a mistake! You all can go drink and gallon of bleach and swallow a bag of pennies! Good the ****ing bye!
