Various reports are revealing that Chris Brown did not undergo a drug test before he was released from a Washington D.C. jail even though it was a requirement of his probation.
"I don't know why [Brown's test was waived]," Leah Gurowitz, the Director of Governmental and Public Relations for DC Courts told Radar Online. "It's a condition of release. Sometimes it's ordered and sometimes not. But I don't know if they decided he didn't need it for whatever reason."
According to the release form the drug screening was initially ordered but then stricken from the release requirement. However, Browns bodyguard and co-defendant Chris Hollosy, were both required to submit to a drug test before being released.
"They were filling out that form, and they're initialing it, like 'I'm the one who changed this and it should have been changed.' Like if it was on a credit card receipt," Gurowitz added. "I don't have any sense of why that was [changed]."
Brown was arrested early Sunday in Washington and charged with felony assault, the Metropolitan Police Department revealed.
D.C. police spokesman Paul Metcalf said the 24-year-old Brown got into a physical altercation and was accused of breaking the nose of Parker Isaac Adams, 20, near the W Hotel located on K and 15th street around 4:25 a.m.
Brown is still on probation from his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. If he is found guilty and if Sunday's arrest is determined to be a violation of his probation the R&B singer could be facing up to four years in prison.
Danny Onorato represented the troubled entertainer after his recent assault. Although Brown is seeking help for his aggressive behavior, Onorato insists his client was not at fault.
"Christopher Brown committed no crime," Onorato told reporters, according to RumorFix.com. "We understand that his security acted to protect Mr. Brown and his property, as he is authorized to do under District of Columbia law. We are confident that Mr. Brown will be exonerated of any wrongdoing."
