Chris Brown’s going to clean his act up, apparently

Chris Brown just got out of jail after spending a couple of months “in the clink” as they (“they” being no one but Michael Scott) say. He wasn’t happy being there, but he’s overjoyed at being out and wants to make sure he never gets in that situation again… so he’s going legit, guys. That’s right – Chris Brown is getting on the straight and narrow!

From TMZ:

Sources close to Chris tell TMZ … the singer is making a Lindsay-type pledge — to stay away from drugs and bad people, especially those connected to gangs.

Chris seems to be blaming part of his problems — which landed him in jail for 108 days — on the people with whom he was hanging.  But he’s also acknowledging his problems with violence were largely his doing.  Doctors believe his erratic behavior was largely the result of bipolarity.  He’s now on meds and doctors say he’s now stabilized.

Brown says his singular focus now is music and he has privately told his label he will not screw up again.

LOL, okay, let’s go with that. I give him 90 days before he’s messed up again – punched a wall, threw a chair, ripped his shirt off in a Hulk-style rage… you get the picture.

Chris Brown is out of jail!

This is a day of celebration/mourning depending on who you are (his mother/the world), because Chris Brown is out of jail! He was recently sentenced to another four months behind bars, where he’s been since March, but he’s out early for time served, of course.

Here’s the scoop from TMZ:

Despite being sentenced on May 9 to 131 days in jail, Brown was sprung around midnight after serving 108 days.

Breezy was actually sentenced to a year behind bars, but got credit for 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days behind bars.

Brown was thrown back behind bars because a judge ruled that Brown had violated his probation in the Rihanna case. He could have been sentenced to as much as four years.

Brown still has his D.C. assault trial looming. That should begin in the next few months.

Well, unfortunately I think the glory days are over – he won’t be sent back to prison after the assault case, I don’t think (though that would be a dream come true) and he can go back to terrorizing the masses. Of course, given Brown’s history, it’s only a matter of time until he fucks up again.

Chris Brown sentenced to another 4 months in jail… but will he serve it?

Chris Brown has been sitting in a jail cell for the past couple of months, and I love it. I was really hoping he was going to stay there once a judge heard his latest assault case – which, by the way, is yet another violation of his 2009 probation from when he beat the shit out of Rihanna – but alas, that’s not the case, most likely. Chris saw a judge for the probation violation this week, and while he was sentenced to a further four months behind bars, loopholes mean he might be out by the end of the week.

From TMZ:

Brown was in court Friday afternoon … where he admitted he violated his probation by getting into a fight with a dude in Washington D.C.

That’s all the judge needed to hear.  He sentenced Chris to 1 year in jail.  HOWEVER, Chris got credit for 116 days he spent in rehab, and another 59 days behind bars.  That leaves 131 days in the pokey.

But we’re told the L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept has been releasing inmates sentenced to 1 year after 240 days.  And here’s the thing.  Chris gets credit for 2 days for every 1 he served behind bars, so when you add it up, he has credit for 234 days — 6 days shy.  So he could be released in days.

The judge could have gone a lot harder — 4 years in prison.  But Chris got a break because the judge took into account he was recently diagnosed with bipolar disorder, which could account for some of the violence.

The judge also ordered Chris to attend therapy sessions with a shrink 2 times a week.   And he must submit to random drug testing 3 times a week.

Ugh, so ridiculous. HOW MANY TIMES has he been ordered to see a therapist, do community service, go to anger management, etc? Sorry, but no amount of counseling is going to turn this piece of shit into a decent human being, and I feel pretty confident saying that.

The one hope is that his DC assault case is yet to be heard – that’ll happen early next month, so he could end up right back where he started.
