Judge Won't Send Chris Brown to Jail

Posted: Updated:

A Los Angeles judge has denied a request by prosecutors to take Chris Brown into custody because of an alleged violation of the singer's probation, ordered as a result of his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The judge cited reports that the singer was "making great strides" in a substance-abuse and anger-management program and said Brown could remain free on his own recognizance.

A date for a formal probation violation hearing related to accusations that Brown punched a man trying to get a photo in Washington, D.C., is scheduled to be set on Feb. 28.
