That order came during a probation hearing that had been on the schedule before the R&B; singer was arrested in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 27 and charged with misdemeanor assault.
During the 90-day live-in stint, to be done in Los Angeles County at a facility approved by probation officials, Brown will also have to complete three eight-hour days of community service each week and undergo periodic drug tests. He's still on probation related to his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
He will be allowed to fly to Washington for legal proceedings related to his assault charge.
Also, it turns out that Brown, who'd gone to rehab of his own accord after the D.C. arrest but walked out about two weeks later, was actually ordered out of that Malibu facility Nov. 10 for violent behavior after he threw a rock and shattered a window on his mother's car, according to a probation report obtained by L.A. Now.
The blow-up was initiated during a family counseling session in which his mom said she wanted him to stay in treatment, the records show. Brown then walked out and tossed the rock. Nobody was hurt.
Brown previously completed an anger-management course as part of his assault sentence, but he appears to need a little bit more work in that area.
