Chris Brown: In Rehab For Anger Management, Seeking "Insight" Into Behavior

by at .  Updated at .

Chris Brown has checked into a rehab facility to seek treatment for anger management issues in the wake of his arrest last weekend, according to reports.

Perhaps Breezy heeded Mike Tyson's advice?

Chris Brown: Unity!

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, dropped him off at an L.A. treatment center, presumably to deal with his rage issues - and stave off a prison sentence.

His mom, Joyce Hawkins, and on-off girlfriend Karrueche Tran reportedly came to see him off as well, while his publicist confirmed that he's in treatment.

"Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility," said a statement Tuesday night from his rep. There is no indication of substance abuse issues. Only rage.

"His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and career from a healthier vantage point."

Chris also Tweeted: "In order to go where u have never gone u have to be willing to go where u never been!!!! #OHB CBE! I love you TEAM BREEZY"

The L.A. County Probation Department is proceeding with an investigation to determine if Brown violated his probation in the 2009 Rihanna case.

By getting arrested for assault for allegedly punching some guy in the nose, Chris could have his probation, and freedom, revoked. Conviction or not.

Due to the victim's injuries being less than severe and conflicting witness accounts, the felony charge against him has already been reduced to a misdemeanor.

It's the probation that's the real problem for Chris, though, not this case.

The embattled 24-year-old star flew to L.A. after getting released from the D.C. jail and met with L.A. County Probation Department officials today.

Following his conviction for assault for his attack on Rihanna, he was given five years' probation, which requires him to do community labor and obey all laws.

Not done and not done. At best, the R&B singer is on thin ice at this point.

It's likely the Probation Department will conclude Brown violated his probation, and a judge could sentence him to as much as four years in prison.

However, a judge could also withhold a decision until after the D.C. case plays out. In which case, the rehab move could show good faith and contrition.

Well, at least until the next time he beats the crap out of somebody.
