It was just early Monday morning when Chris Brown was released from jail and sent home.

Yes, the entertainer was released from a Los Angeles County jail, as the Associated Press reports, at 12:01 a.m. Monday morning, according to L.A. Sheriff's deputy Tony Moore.
Brown was last taken into custody in mid-March when he was removed from rehab because he violated the rules and policies. That is not all, as the singer admitted to violating his probation when he got into a fight outside of a hotel in Washington, D.C. just last year.
It was on May 9 that Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin ordered Brown to serve an additional 131 days in jail, but still Brown was expected to be released sooner than that. Brandlin ended up giving Brown credit for nearly eight months, including time spent in rehab and jail, plus credit for good behavior.
TMZ did the math, and reported that Brown only served 108 days, and acquired credit for 116 days spent in rehab and 59 days behind bars.
He may be out for now, but the singer still has his trial concerning the D.C. assault coming up, so he may not be home free just yet. Hopefully he enjoys some time at home before that comes up.
