Chris Brown has to remain in jail for the next five weeks. That’s the ruling the judge in his probation case handed down today after the singer was kicked out of rehab over the weekend.

Brown was originally ordered to remain in the rehabilitation center until his pending assault case in Washington, DC began in April.
Police arrested Brown after he was thrown out of the facility for breaking internal rules – refusing to take a drug test (he later agreed) and touching a woman’s hand and elbow (he was required to remain two feet away from all women).
The judge also stated that Brown’s apparent comments about being “good at using guns and knives” while completing his rehab program was troubling, and his “inability to stay out of trouble” led to the decision to not allow him to enter another rehab facility.
Brown is to remain jailed until April 23rd when his D.C. trial ends. It is scheduled to begin on April 17th.
