Tuesday (October 29) Chris Brown reported to an undisclosed rehabilitation facility to get a grasp on his anger management issues following an arrest in Washington, D.C. RadarOnline.com has obtained Brown’s release form and it may indicate that Breezy may have a need for treatment for more than just his anger.
In assault cases, it is standard protocol as condition of release to drug test defendants at arraignment, but oddly a drug test was ordered by the court and not taken by CB. Brown’s co-defendant, friend and bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, however still went through with the test as ordered.
“I don’t know why [Brown’s test was waived],” Leah Gurowitz, the Director of Governmental and Public Relations for DC Courts tells Radar. “It’s a condition of release. Sometimes it’s ordered and sometimes not. But I don’t know if they decided he didn’t need it for whatever reason.”
Brown’s form was initialed by agents from pretrial services indicating that the drug test condition for release was changed and according to an insider speaking to RadarOnline.com, for that change to be granted, it took special clearance.
“I was told that the government decided not to request drug testing” on Brown, though they did on his bodyguard, the source reveals. “You might ask the U.S. Attorney’s office why.”
Radar did reach out to the U.S. Attorney’s office and was told by the Public Information Officer that, “Generally, we don’t comment beyond what we submit to the court. I’m sorry I can’t help you.”
Brown is an admitted drug user and has been cavalier with his marijuana usage, often posting pics on Instagram of him partaking of the hallucinogen. Brown has failed random drug tests before, but got off with a warning because it was legally prescribed by a California chiropractor, getting off with a mere warning.
Brown is currently in his fourth year of five years probation and has not had a clean sheet throughout his probation. He has been tip-toeing a fine line facing violation of probation for several incidents. A failed drug test at his arraignment definitely would not have helped him.
Brown is facing up to four years in prison if he is found to be in violation of his probation.
