LOS ANGELES (AP) — Chris Brown will spend another month in jail after a judge said Monday he was told the singer made troubling comments in rehab about being good at using guns and knives.

Brown, 24, was arrested on Friday after he was dismissed from a Malibu facility where he was receiving treatment for anger management, substance abuse and issues related to bipolar disorder.

Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said rehab officials reported to him that Brown said during a group session: “‘I am good at using guns and knives.'” His comment was in response to an exercise in which Brown was asked to reflect on things he was good or excelled at.

The facility cited three other violations of its rules, claiming Brown refused to take a drug test, made a statement that alarmed rehab officials, and was seen touching the elbow of a female client.

His attorney Mark Geragos said the comment Brown made that prompted concern was, “‘I’m going to ask my higher power to take away my troubles.'” An incident report by the facility states Brown laughed and rolled his eyes when he made the comment.

Geragos said that despite initially resisting the drug test, his client eventually took it and passed.

Brandlin rejected a request by Geragos that the Grammy-winning Brown be released into a different rehab program. He ordered Brown to remain in jail until a probation violation hearing scheduled for April 23.

The singer has been under court supervision since pleading guilty to the felony assault of his then-girlfriend Rihanna in an attack hours before the 2009 Grammy Awards.

Brown appeared in court wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, a sharp contrast from the suits and designer jeans he has worn for other court hearings.

Geragos had requested that Brown be allowed to change into a suit, but Brandlin refused. The singer’s mother was crying as she left the courtroom.

The defense attorney argued unsuccessfully that keeping Brown in custody would be a waste of law enforcement and court resources and could create problems for the singer’s upcoming trial in Washington, D.C., on a misdemeanor assault charge.

Geragos said that trial is scheduled for April 17 but there was no way the singer could attend it if he was sitting in a Los Angeles jail.

Brandlin ordered Geragos and a prosecutor to look into options that would allow Brown to attend the trial before the probation violation hearing was held in Los Angeles.

The judge did not indicate any potential penalties he was considering if Brown is found to have violated his probation.

Geragos said the ruling to keep Brown in jail would likely force him to file an appellate court motion for the release of the singer.

After the hearing, he described Brown as having a bad day at the treatment facility.

“You know — do you have a bad day? I have bad days sometimes,” Geragos said outside the courthouse. “Do you say things you’d like to take back? I certainly do. So I don’t know that being in a therapeutic session and you’re talking about your reflections and you say one sentence means you go to jail? Seems to me to be counterproductive to therapy.”

    Any and everybody have to be careful what you say to other people, it can easily be misconstrued. Chris take your meds on the regular to help control your mood swings and continue counseling. If you’re bipolar type I you can function well in society if you take your meds as directed and keep going to your counseling sessions because sometimes your meds need to be changed. Bipolar disorder is a mental illness but can be controlled but if your’re bipolar schizophrenic you need intensive meds and counseling, can be dangerous to yourself and to others. Do the right thing and stop acting like a wild animal out of it’s cage. .

  4. Chris Brown need some serious help… As African Americans we should not write him off like main stream media… Lift him up and ask the Father to guide him…

    OK. there are some people who will never, ever like or forgive Chris Brown. that is just the way it is, I suppose. although I do hope for those of you that do feel that eway arent in chruch on Sunday and getitng up and testifying. Even if some dont like him, he has become a target, and you are right by saying this isnt about rehab. Those statements meand nothing. Someone at that facility just ewants to get in the paper or on the six o’cxlock news.If you cant speak your mind why are you there? Yes, it was a bit over the top, but Jail.
    He is a lot different from Whitney though. She was 48, still geting rip roarin high until the end. At 24 he does have time to recover and reflect. Has plenty of talent if he doesnt waste it. These 3-4 weeks could do him good if he thinkgs about it properly. I still wish him well, regardless of those who harbor continuos hate.

  6. How sad!!! This young man is no different than a Whitney Houston. A weak human-beings. All the great things Houston and Brown could have done to uplift young black girls and boys around the world; but all they can muster is their selfish actions; unable to find the backbone to lead. Weak and sorry.

    In counseling the client is supposed to be the person whose interest and confidentiality are kept at the forefront, unless there is danger of immediate harm to someone, or a law has been broken. If the client hasn’t an assurance of confidentiality true counseling can’t take place. All you would get is lies. This young man had better tell them what they want to hear because it doesn’t sound like they really want to help. This is a strange case. He needs Britney Spears’, or the other white chick’s lawyers number to get out of this.
