Troubled R&B singer Chris Brown had his probation revoked on Monday, following his October arrest for an alleged assault in Washington, D.C. Brown, who is on probation for attacking his former girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, was not ordered to go to jail as a result of the revocation, but the California judge ordered him to return to court on Feb. 10 for an update on his rehabilitation.

Brown was ordered to spend 90 days in rehab for anger management as a result of the D.C. arrest, in which he was accused of punching a man outside the W Hotel in Washington. Brown and his bodyguard were charged with felony assault, but the charges were later reduced to misdemeanor assault. The singer is set to appear in D.C. court on Jan. 8.

This is the second time Brown’s probation has been revoked this year. In July, his probation was revoked following an alleged hit-and-run in California. Superior Court Judge James Brandlin said Brown was doing well in rehab, according to his probation officers.
