Chris Brown Facing Possible Jail Time For Rihanna Assault Probation

(Radio.com) Chris Brown returned to court on Monday (July 15) after Los Angeles county prosecutors filed paperwork to revoke his probation. The original probation was filed in 2009 after he pleaded guilty in the domestic abuse felony conviction involving former girlfriend Rihanna.

While the District Attorney's Office let Brown go on Monday, he is still faces possible jail time, CBS Los Angeles reports. Brown has been released and ordered back to court on August 16 for further proceedings.

Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray had the choice to take Brown immediately into custody, but instead set the new trial date to determine if the probation will stand. If the probation revocation does stand, he could serve some of the five-year jail sentence for his assault of Rihanna.

Court documents (obtained by Radio.com) in the revocation of Chris Brown's probation state: "Subsequent to the defendant's grant of probation, the defendant violated his probation by committing the following crime: Vehicle Code."

In May, Brown received three misdemeanor charges after an alleged hit-and-run. He was caught driving without a license and insurance information. At the time of the accident he was already facing a probation violation after not completing community service from his 2009 assault conviction. more on this story
