Chris Brown’s Probation Revoked Following Club Shooting
The negative headlines continue to follow Chris Brown in 2015. The embattled singer's probation has been revoked, partially as a consequence for a nightclub shooting that left five shot over the weekend.
According to TMZ, a Los Angeles judge mentioned that the incident was a big problem during Brown's progress hearing on Thursday (Jan. 15). The official also expressed concern over another incident at 1OAK during MTV VMA weekend last August, which left multiple club patrons shot, including Suge Knight.
Brown is also in trouble for traveling outside of county lines to San Jose without the court's permission, which is in direct violation of his probation. There is an official hearing scheduled for March 20 to determine if he "willfully" violated probation. Jail time could be handed to Brown if he's found to be guilty.
Although the judge noted the 'X' creator wasn't criminally involved in the shootings that occurred on Jan. 11, his probation officer feels Brown is a threat to public safety. "There is also concern that when he performs or attends at some of his public events, people will get shot or seriously injured," the officer stated.
Brown was already arrested twice for violating probation: once for assault outside of a Washington, D.C., hotel in October 2013 and again for throwing a rock at his mother's car last March. The initial probation was given to the crooner for assaulting Rihanna in 2009.
