According to sources within the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Office, singer Chris Brown was released from an LA County jail at 12:01am today (June 2) where he was serving out a sentence after being expelled from a court-ordered drug treatment program in March.
Brown has been plagued with legal issues over the years, from the infamous attack on his then-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009 to allegedly assaulting a man outside of a Washington D.C. hotel in October while still on probation.
The R&B artist has been in jail since March of this year and was sentenced in May to serve an additional 131 days. However, taking into consideration time served (a combination of time spent in jail and rehab) and additional credit for good behavior, it appears as if Brown was allowed to serve a considerably smaller sentence.

Is this good or bad? Do you think the Grammy-winner has really learned his lesson or did the jail just see the need to make room for Justin Bieber? You know… just in case.
