A US judge has revoked singer Chris Brown’s probation for beating Rihanna — meaning he could now face FOUR YEARS in prison.
Cops in Los Angeles decided to bring the 24-year-old's case back to court in the wake of a new hit-and-run charge that has been brought against him. The new case centres around a car accident in May where Brown is alleged to have left the scene without providing correct licence and insurance details.
Brown was sentenced to five years’ probation in 2009 after beating superstar RiRi and was also banned from contacting her.
But he will now have to go back into the dock in August to learn whether he will face jail for the same offence. He will not be kept in custody in the meantime.
Under the rules of his probation he was required to obey ALL laws without fail, which is why cops are taking a relatively minor offence so seriously.
