LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Brown was arrested Friday and will be held without bail on a warrant issued by probation officials in the latest legal entanglement for the R&B singer who has struggled to put his 2009 attack on Rihanna behind him.

The warrant was issued by officials overseeing the singer’s sentence for the Rihanna case.

Sheriff’s officials said Brown was cooperative when he was arrested at a Malibu treatment facility where he had been staying.

Brown had been ordered to remain in rehab for treatment related to anger issues.

No other details on why the warrant was issued were released. The judge overseeing his case set a hearing for Monday afternoon.

An email sent to Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos was not immediately returned. A probation spokeswoman declined comment on what prompted Brown’s arrest.

Brown’s probation for the Rihanna assault had been scheduled to end this year, but a judge revoked it last year after Brown was arrested on a misdemeanor assault charge in Washington, D.C. That case is pending.

Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin rejected a Los Angeles prosecutor’s request to send Brown to jail because of the Washington case, citing his progress in rehab.

In addition to getting treatment, the singer remained under strict orders to complete 1,000 hours of community labor this year. A probation report dated Feb. 26 stated that Brown had completed 250 hours and that he was being cooperative with probation officials.

Brown’s attempts at treatment have not been without difficulties.

A rehab center where Brown was voluntarily staying reported to Brandlin that the singer threw a rock through his mother’s window during a joint counseling session in November. The judge then ordered Brown to remain in treatment for another three months and renewed that order at a hearing on Feb. 28.

A probation officer interviewed Brown for the February report, saying the singer was grateful to be in rehab and “looks forward to staying out of trouble.”

“He remains thankful to the court for the opportunity to find out and learn more about himself, his anger issues and the type of person he wants to become, which is a man who is able to better himself and be a positive role model,” the report states.

    What does Chris being a “man of color” has to do with this? Violence is everywhere and it is not the so called THUGS as you put it doing violence alone. So Iannn if you want all “hoodlums” gone, you need to start in your family FIRST (which I am sure you have some), whites who do crimes, Asians who do crime; women who do crime, men who do crime, and so forth. As to Chris, Chris needs to get it together as I would tell ANYONE in his situation. Locking him up is not the solutions. Jails only make people better criminals when they get out and WE the tax payers are paying for them to get 3 HOT MEALS and a BED with HEAT and A/C while you are struggling to pay your bills.
