Chris Brown will be in jail until April 23, wearing the standard issue orange jail shirt and pants. He was taken into custody, without bail, after being kicked out of court-ordered rehab in connection with a 2009 conviction for beating singer Rihanna.
Permission for Brown to appear in court in a business suit was requested by Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, but denied by Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin.
The judge ordered Brown’s arrest after he was ejected from the court-ordered anger and mental health issues program for internal rule violations, including allegedly making a threatening comment, failing to take a drug test and touching a female undergoing treatment at the center.
Brown also has pending a trial on April 17 in Washington, D.C., not in connection with the Rihanna case, where he faces a misdemeanor assault charge.
