Singer Chris Brown could face up to four years in prison if a judge determines he violated the terms of his probation when he was kicked out of a rehabilitation facility in Malibu. Brown, who has been in jail since the end of last week, was denied bail on Monday and ordered to remain behind bars until at least an April 23, his next scheduled court hearing. Brown's ejection from rehab is a potential violation of the court-ordered treatment for his conviction in 2009 for beating singer Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time.
