Chris Brown tests positive for marijuana during probation

  • R&B singer Chris Brown has tested positive for marijuana and is due to appear at a court hearing in November to decide whether he violated his probation following a 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

    According to a probation report presented in a Los Angeles court, Brown tested positive in June in Virginia, where he is carrying out his community service.

    Brown, who is halfway through a five-year probation sentence, produced a medical marijuana card after the test came back positive.

    He was sentenced to five years of probation and six months of community service after pleading guilty to criminal assault for beating Rihanna the night before the 2009 Grammy awards.
