Chris Brown‘s probation has been revoked again. A Los Angeles judge decided to violate Brown on Thursday after finding out that the singer had traveled to San Jose on Sunday for a birthday show without the court’s approval and was present when five people at the Fiesta Nightclub were shot and wounded.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin did not order Brown to be taken into custody, but asked for more investigation and a hearing on the singer’s status.
CB was released on his own recognizance and scheduled to return for a hearing on March 20. Brandlin also reportedly expressed concern that Brown was present during another shooting at the 1OAK club in August, when he was on stage when several people were shot, including former Death Row Records boss Suge Knight.
Brown posted a Vine of his reaction to Sunday’s shooting and reportedly tweeted that he was “100″ following the incident (that tweet has since been deleted.)
District attorney’s spokesperson Jane Robinson said in court that Brown had specifically violated a provision that forbids him to leave Los Angeles County; he also still has 200 out of 1,000 community service hours to complete. Brandlin noted, however, that there was no evidence that Brown was involved in either shooting.
Brown’s probation from his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna has been revoked before, including last March, when he was sent to jail for violating the rules at a treatment program. According to TMZ, if Brandlin finds that Brown “willfully” violated probation, the singer could be sent to prison
