Chris Brown in Solitary Confinement could Face Four Years in Prison at His Next Court Date in April

Singer Chris  Brown could face up to four years in prison if a judge determines he  violated the terms of his probation when he was kicked out of a rehabilitation  facility in Malibu.

Brown, who has been in jail since the end of last week, was denied bail on  Monday and ordered to remain behind bars until at least an April 23, his next  scheduled court hearing.

Brown’s ejection from rehab is a potential violation of the court-ordered  treatment for his conviction in 2009 for beating singer Rihanna, his girlfriend  at the time.  He was arrested at the Malibu facility on Friday.

Chris Brown, in court with Geragos, will also have to take a domestic violence course.

L.A. County Superior Court Judge James Brandlin ordered Brown  arrested after he was ejected from the program for allegedly violating internal  rules by making a threatening comment, failing to submit to a drug test and  touching a female also undergoing treatment at the facility.

“It is clear from reading the incident report from the program, the program  was concerned about the defendant’s noncompliance and inability to follow the  program’s rules,” Brandlin said in court.

Chris Brown leaves the downtown courthouse after sentencing. According to a probation officer's report, the singer was involved in two unreported incidents "related to domestic violence" before the February incident.

This is not the first time Brown has been kicked out of rehab. During family  counseling in November, Brown walked out and threw a rock through his mother’s  car window.

That led the judge to order a lengthy stay at another facility, complete two  dozen hours of community labor and submit to periodic drug tests.

The singer’s attorney, Mark Geragos, on Monday asked that Brown be  released on bail because of a pending trial April 17 in Washington, D.C., where  he faces a misdemeanor assault charge for allegedly hitting a man trying to take  a picture of him outside the W Hotel. That request was rejected.
