R&B singer Chris Brown has been ordered by a Los Angeles judge to remain in jail at least until his April 23 probation violation hearing, related to his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The Grammy-winning R&B singer spent the weekend in a downtown Los Angeles lockup after a judge ordered him to be arrested for violating the rules and regulations of his treatment. Court records did not elaborate on the reason for Brown’s dismissal from the facility in Malibu that was treating him for anger management, substance abuse and issues related to bi-polar disorder.

Brown, 24, had been under court orders to remain in treatment since November, one month after he was arrested in Washington, D.C., after a man accused him of punching him in a confrontation outside a hotel. That case remains pending, and Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin has not yet scheduled a probation violation hearing to address whether he would penalize the singer for the arrest.

      I just wonder why it is that L.A. jails never had room to hold other people. People were let right out after being processed, saying no room for them. Lindsey, khloe K. and Paris, just to name a few.
      Why is there so much room to hold Chris, and for so long. I think it’s wrong.

      Totally baffled that the Judge uses a stmt made in rehab as reason to send this kid to jail. Reports previously have said he was exemplary – does he not deserve the meaning of that stmt after 3mnths of what was reported as very good record coupled with negative drug tests? Would he have been seen as a threat where he to have claimed to be a member of the NRA with additional fascinations for samurai swords?
      How does jail impact his treatment or is the Judge in playing to the gallery as the D.A demanded making sure a young man diagnosed with having several mental disorders joins the huge statistic of those who fell by the wayside!!There goes again the peculiar illogical face of US justice.
