Chris Brown probation revoked

A judge revoked Chris Brown's probation

A Los Angeles judge has revoked Chris Brown's probation after reading details of an alleged hit-and-run accident and his behaviour afterwards, but the singer was not ordered to jail.

Brown's lawyer suggested that perhaps the matter will be resolved informally without a major probation hearing.

The prosecutor did not ask for Brown to be jailed.

Another hearing is set for August 16.

The singer has been on felony probation in the 2009 beating of former girlfriend Rihanna.

In February, the Sheriff's Department investigated a fight between Brown and singer Frank Ocean at a recording studio, but Ocean decided not to pursue a battery case against Brown. The same month, Brown crashed his Porsche while being chased by paparazzi.

Brown's most recent problem stems from a May 12 traffic accident in which he is suspected of rear-ending a car stopped at a red light in the San Fernando Valley and refusing to give the other driver his license or insurance information.

Brown won a Grammy in 2011 for Best R&B Album with F.A.M.E.

Ask colleagues and relatives for help with mundane errands while you focus on the long term financial future. If you don't protect your economic interests, nobody else will.More
