Chris Brown Shipped Off To Rehab To Control Anger Issues

Chris Brown escaped prison once again with his latest run-in with the law this wekend, where he faced assault charges after allegedly punching a man in the face. Escaping with only a misdemeanour charge and no fine, thanks in part to the conflicting stories given by the defendant and accuser, Brown has at least admitted to some fault by deciding to admit himself into a rehab clinic in order to address his anger management issues.

Brown is finally addressing his anger issues

As reported by TMZ, Brown checked himself into a rehab facility in Malibu, presumably to deal with his red hot temper and also in a potential bid to evade any future prison sentence. According to the report, Brown was dropped off at the rehab centre by his manager Mark Geragos, just hours after it emerged that the Los Angeles County Probation Department are planning on launching a full investigation into his assault in Washington D.C. to determine whether it violates his probation. The Grammy-winning R&B singer is still under probation for his 2009 attack on then girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown is also said to have been taken to the rehab centre with his mother and girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Whilst we and many others will no doubt see this as a necessary measure for Brown, his admittance to the help clinic might be more of a sign of penitence for the benefit of the parole board, rather than an actual admittance of guilt or wrongdoing.

But is it an admittance of guilt, or a measure to avoid jail

TMZ go on to state that Brown flew back from D.C. after his date in magistrates court and immediately went to visit the L.A Probation Dept. to discuss his latest run in with the law. After the meeting, he was driven to the rehab centre in Malibu while he awaits their decision. If he is found guilty of violating his probation, he faces a potential four year prison sentence.
