Chris Brown’s probation revoked

Los Angeles (CNN) — Chris Brown faces possible jail time after a judge revoked his probation Monday in connection with his conviction in the beating of his girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown’s alleged failure to hand over his driver’s license and insurance information to another driver after a minor traffic crash in May triggered the probation revocation, but the singer will remain free until a trial is held.
Brown, 24, was already facing a probation violation trial after prosecutors accused him of not completing the community labor ordered for his 2009 felony assault conviction.
A representative for Brown, however, said the singer expects the traffic charges to be dropped and probation reinstated.
A lawyer for the other driver said in a court hearing Monday morning “that his client did not want to press charges, that any damage was “negligible” and that Chris did identify himself at the scene and that she was given all of the appropriate insurance information,” the Brown rep said in a statement to CNN Monday evening.
“We are hopeful that the case will be dismissed next week,” the rep said.
A woman whose Mercedes was allegedly rear-ended by a Range Rover that Brown was driving on a Los Angeles street told investigators that he “went ballistic” after the traffic accident and screamed at her.
