No bad press is enough bad press for this jerk. Obviously, Chris Brown has some serious anger issues. He recently attacked a man outside a Washington hotel while he was on probation for physically assaulting then girlfriend Rihanna.
Today, Brown plead guilty to misdemeanor assault charges and was sentenced to time served (2 days in a D.C. jail) but the story doesn’t end there.
When first arrested in Washington last October, Brown was on probation in a felony assault case in California for attacking Rihanna before the 2009 Grammy Awards.
Since Brown was still on probation, the result of this Washington case could have repercussions in California. On May 9, a California Superior Court judge ordered him to stay in jail and extended his probation to Jan. 23, 2015. However, this punk skated again and was released early on June 2nd due to overcrowding in California and other legal mumbo jumbo.
No word yet if Brown’s probation will be revoked in California after pleading guilty, but you would have to think he’s not going to see any jail time if he was willing to plead guilty.
Defense attorney, Danny Onorato, pitched a bunch of BS that Brown had already been “punished extensively” for the Rihanna assault. Really? Serving one month in jail for violating parole after raising your hand to a woman is “extensive punishment”?
The attorney also noted that Brown spent four months receiving inpatient counseling after his probation was revoked.
“To say that he’s been punished severely in this matter is an understatement,” Onorato said.
He said Brown’s career has been on hold for nearly a year and he wanted to take responsibility for his actions so he could go back to work, including a tour in support of a new album.
The “Fine China” singer gave a short statement, saying: “I would like to say to the court that I’m sorry.” He did not comment as he left court as the media and fans gathered.
Before his attack on Rihanna it looked like Chris Brown’s career had no ceiling and could have been one of the biggest stars in the world, but since then he has had multiple run ins with the law that have been reported to authorities and noted by Los Angeles prosecutors.
This guy is just nothing but trouble, some of the his smaller incidents include broken window after a 2011 “Good Morning America” interview in New York as well as grabbing a woman’s cellphone in Miami after trying to take pictures of Brown.
Brown was also involved in a nightclub brawl in New York and in West Hollywood with Frank Ocean’s crew over something as stupid as a parking spot.
No charges were ever brought against Brown for these more minor incidents but it definitely shows a pattern of troubled behavior.
Regrettably, 13 million of Chris Brown’s twitter fans still continue to support him. If the legal system can’t handle domestic abusers it would be nice to see his fans shun him at least.
Brown has a new album “X” debuting on Sept. 16th. Let’s all hope it bombs!
