The LA Times is reporting troubled singer Chris Brown was taken into custody in Malibu today by Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies on a warrant connected to his 2009 arrest on domestic assault charges involving ex-girlfriend Rihanna.
Last month, Brown had been ordered to spend another 90 days in a rehab facility for anger management and drug abuse treatment. But Brown, who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, reportedly did not return to the facility as ordered.
From LA Times:
The singer was taken to the inmate reception center in downtown Los Angeles, where he was being booked into jail, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker said.
He was arrested in Malibu without incident, Parker said. No details were immediately available about what led to his arrest.
Brown is on probation for his 2009 conviction in the assault.
In November, the singer was ordered to a 90-day live-in anger-management treatment program, where he would have to complete three eight-hour days of community service each week and undergo periodic drug tests.
Prosecutors in February asked a judge to take Brown into custody for failing to live up to a probation requirement that he “obey all laws.”
Stayed tuned for more details in this developing story.
