Chris Brown is going all out with the damage control, with hope of avoiding jail time. Today (oct. 29), the troubled R&B singer checked into a rehab facility for anger management in Malibu.

Reports TMZ:

Sources tell TMZ … Brown’s attorney, Mark Geragos, just dropped him off at a facility in Malibu. The move doesn’t come a day too soon.

We’ve learned the L.A. County probation department is going full bore in its investigation to determine if Brown violated his probation in the Rihanna case by getting arrested in D.C. over the weekend … after allegedly punching a guy in the nose.

Sources tell TMZ, Brown flew to L.A. after getting released from the D.C. jail and met with L.A. County Probation Department officials today.

We’re told it’s likely the Probation Department will determine that Brown violated his probation, and a judge could sentence him to as much as 4 years in prison.

Along with Geragos, we’re told him mom and GF Karrueche accompanied Chris to the facility.

The rehab move could show a measure of good faith and contrition.

No one wants to be in prison, and we’re going to go out on the limb and say Breezy isn’t built for the bing. Also, if the incident in Washington D.C. really went down because of a photobombing, Brown definitely need to reevaluate his lifestyle.

Think Brown will have to do some jail time? Let us know in the comments.
