A Los Angeles judge revoked singer Chris Brown’s probation Monday following his

October arrest for getting into a fight outside the W Hotel in D.C.

The California judge did not immediately send Brown to jail but allowed the Grammy-winner performer to continue his rehabilitation for anger management and substance abuse issues, according to the Associated Press.

Brown must return for a hearing on Feb. 10 that will decide if he’ll serve jail time after his three months in rehab.

Brown is not allowed to leave California except to travel to a hearing in the D.C. assault case on Jan. 8, where he’s required to appear in person.

At the time of the incident in downtown Washington, Brown was still  on probation for his 2009 attack of then-girlfriend pop star Rhianna.

D.C. police said Brown got into an altercation with an adult male near the W Hotel at 15th Street around 4:25 a.m. Police arrested Brown and his bodyguard, Chris Hollosy. Both men initially were charged with felony assault, but the charges were reduced to a misdemeanor by prosecutors.

Brown has had other run-ins with the law, including a brawl in 2012 that erupted between his entourage and the rap artist Drake at a New York City nightclub and a dispute in February with the singer Frank Ocean over a parking space in Los Angeles.

Brown is best known for pop hits like, “Yeah 3X,” “Look at Me Now,” “Strip,” ”Run It!” and “Deuces.”
