Chris Brown Off Probation, Rihanna Assault Case Closed

  /  03.20.2015

Chris Brown has finally caught a break. After nearly six years, the singer’s felony probation over his 2009 assault on Rihanna has come to a close.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Friday (via AP) that Brown had completed the terms of his sentence, which included community labor, domestic violence counseling, and rehab.

According to TMZ, the probation officer submitted a glowing report to the judge and was satisfied with his excuse for traveling to San Jose for a concert in January.

Brown had been on probation after pleading guilty to attacking his ex-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards. He spent two-and-a-half months in jail after he was arrested for hitting a man outside a Washington hotel in October 2013.

Breezy, who wrapped his “Between the Sheets Tour” with Trey Songz on Thursday night, celebrated the good news, tweeting, “IM OFF PROBATION!!!!!!!! Thank the Lord!!!!!!”
