If it was up to L.A.’s DA Mary Murray, Breezy would be behind bars.  Murray filed a motion with the court to have the singer placed in jail and face a probation violation hearing stemming from his assault case in DC.

The DA said that Chris Brown should be taken into custody because he is an “increasingly violent danger to society.”  However, Breezy’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, argued the court should wait for a resolution on the D.C. case, because it hasn’t been that his client assaulted anyone.  Besides the fact that Chris hasn’t had any other issues since.  Luckily enough for Chris Judge Brandlin agreed, acknowledging Chris was making good progress in treatment.  Probation officials say he has “a more serious and responsible demeanor” since checking into rehab.

Listen to Tha Wire and get further details on when Breezy will have to check back in with the court on his rehab progress.  Plus, the D.C. assault case will resume and there’s more info on that inside Tha Wire as well.
