Facing more legal troubles for an alleged assault in Washington D.C., Chris Brown has checked into an anger management program to reflect on his past and present behavior.
After his charges were reduced from an alleged assault to a misdemeanor R&B singer, Chris Brown, still faces a parole violation.
Chris is still recovering from an incident back in 2009, when he was accused of assaulting Rihanna, leaving her unconscious. Many can agree that he does not need any more bad rep.
The 24-year-old singer has faced similar incidents over the past few years and is looking to delve into the issues that he has encountered.
The alleged assault on Oct. 27 involved Brown punching a man and breaking his nose outside of Washington D.C. hotel because the man attempted to photo-bomb a picture that he was trying to take with a woman.
According to Brown’s sources, Hollosy told police that he punched the alleged victim in the face after he tried to enter Brown’s tour bus.
According to Mark Geragos, attorney for the R&B singer, Chris said, “I want to take some time and do some introspection and understand everything that’s going on around me.”
Geragos said, “It’s not an admission of guilt. People have realizations at various times. Maybe sitting in a jail cell for 36 hours for something you didn’t do is enough to rock you a bit.”
Despite Chris’ decision, people remain skeptical about his decision to reflect.
“Anybody that violates their parole should go prison, regardless of who they are,” said student Nichole Sasse.
“I mean I think that it’s good that he’s getting help for his anger, but I don’t think a rehabilitation program should be an option after that, especially for somebody like Chris Brown who has been in this type of trouble before,” continued Sasse.
“He needs help. He keeps self-medicating with weed and alcohol and that’s when he always gets into trouble,” said a source close to Brown,
“He’s a ‘good kid’ at heart,” continued the source.
Law enforcement told TMZ that Chris allegedly said, “I’m not down with that gay s**t…I’m into boxing”.
Chris’ alleged homophobic slur has also come into speculation because of his recent campaign against anti-gay violence in Africa.
The Huffington Post reports that last month Brown tweeted, “Love is not a crime. Gay or straight. Love who you wanna love. Stop the hate,” along with a link to an allout.org petition.
The alleged victim told TMZ that it is unknown as to why Brown said the homophobic slur.
Brown has a history of being accused of using homophobic remarks on social media, and during a confrontation against R&B artist Frank Ocean.
On Oct. 28, the prosecutors reduced the singer’s felony assault charge to a misdemeanor.
Los Angeles probation officers are looking into the incident to see if Brown violated his parole from the 2009 incident in which he assaulted his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna.
According to tmz.com, if the Parole Department finds a violation of his no-jail time plea deal, a judge can sentence him to four years in prison.
The arrest comes at a critical time for the artist as he is preparing to release an album this winter and is under a deadline to satisfy hundreds of hours of community service from his assault on Rihanna.
