Chris Brown’s probation has been revoked after a judge reviewed the details of a case involving an alleged hit-and-run car crash. However, the singer was not ordered to jail.
A Los Angeles County judge has granted a motion to revoke the terms of Brown’s probation for the 2009 assault on Rihanna due to his alleged role in a hit-and-run accident in May, TMZ reports.
The decision came down just hours after it was reported that the LA District Attorney’s office filed a motion to lift the singer’s probation. Brown appeared in court today with his legal team in tow to fight the motion. Though he maintains that he did everything he was supposed to do following the minor fender bender, the judge still decided to rule in favor of the D.A.
Brown was released on his own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court in August for a probation violation hearing. If found in breach of the terms that were agreed upon following his guilty plea for brutally attacking Rih Rih on that infamous night in February 2009, the “Don’t Judge Me” singer could land in prison for four years.
That was quick — the judge just REVOKED Chris Brown’s probation in the Rihanna beating case, but the singer will remain a free man … for now.

If the judge determines Chris violated his probation, the singer could be sentenced to 4 years in prison.
In the meantime, Brown has been released on his own recognizance.
