Chris Brown hit a road block in his probation Monday (September 24), thanks to recently surfaced evidence of a failed drug test, but a judge decided to give him a break.
According to TMZ, Brown tested positive for marijuana back in June when he was fulfilling his court-ordered community service in Virginia as part of the sentence he received in June 2009 after pleading guilty to one count of felony assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna. Judge Patricia Schnegg said she never ordered Brown to undergo mandatory drug testing as part of his probation, so she ruled that she would not revoke his probation and let him off with a stern warning.
Judge Schnegg also ordered the case be relocated to California, where Brown lives, and that he must meet with his probation officer within 72 hours to sort out a discrepancy in community-service hours.
Brown received countless messages of support from his dedicated fans via Twitter, and for added good measure, his ex Rihanna tweeted her support of him going into the court hearing.
“Praying for you baby, my best wishes are with you today! Remember that whatever God does in our lives, it is WELL DONE!!! #1Love.” Rihanna later tweeted directly at Brown, which he then re-tweeted and responded with his own thanks for her support.
“I’m praying for you and wishing u the best today!” Rihanna wrote to Brown.
“Thank u so much,” he wrote back.
