LOS ANGELES, CA - FEBRUARY 03: R&B singer Chris Brown appears in court for a probation progress hearing on February 3, 2014 in Los Angeles, California. Brown has been on probation since pleading guilty to assaulting his then girlfriend, singer Rihanna, after a pre-Grammy Awards party in 2009. He has been in anger management treatment program and performing community service requirements but failure to meet probation requirements could be even further complicated by assault charges he and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy face stemming from an incident outside the W hotel in Washington D.C. last October.

The Los Angeles Times reports a judge turned down the prosecutor's motion to put Breezy behind bars Monday because of his arrest on an assault charge in Washington, D.C. last year.
According to TMZ, the prosecution wants Brown in jail immediately because his "violent behavior continues to increase in severity and frequency."
