Chris Brown Fails Drug Test at Probation Hearing
Ruh roh. Just when you thought Chris Brown was maybe finally out of trouble, he’s back with more drama. This time? A failed drug test. C’mon, Breezy! Get it together!
Brown was in court yesterday (Sept. 24) for a probation hearing stemming from his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend (and rumored current sidepiece) Rihanna, where it was revealed that he tested positive for marijuana on a drug test administered in Virginia. CNN reports that Brown was completing his community service requirements in his hometown of Richmond, Va., and told authorities that he ingested the weed in California, where he possesses a medical marijuana card.
Though it’s unclear what type of drug test was administered to Brown, he may well be telling the truth about where the pot was ingested: If he took a hair follicle test, any marijuana he used within roughly the last three months would show up in the results. If only drug traces were as easy to remove from the body as Breezy is to be removed from the Internet!
In any case, Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg wasn’t impressed with his, er, relaxation techniques and tools, telling him, “You are not only in the public eye, but you’re on probation. And you’re on probation to me which means that if you violate any laws or orders, then you’re subject to a probation violation. So you’re not an ordinary person who just sits there and does what they want.”
Looks like those mushy “good luck” tweets from Rihanna didn’t help — Brown faces a probation violation hearing on Nov. 1.
