Chris Brown's probation in his felony assault case was revoked Monday by a judge in Los Angeles. The hang-up? Allegedly that "obey all laws" part of the deal he struck with the D.A.'s office back in 2009. Prosecutors maintained that two new misdemeanor charges (hit-and-run and driving without a license) violate the terms of Brown's five-year probation, L.A. Now reported. PHOTOS: Celebrity mug shots Olga Gure-Kovalenko, the driver of the other car, reportedly did not want to follow through on criminal charges, TMZ reported early Monday, but that issue has been continued until a week from Tuesday because the City Attorney's office has not spoken to her. Brown attorney Mark Geragos is maintaining that his client, a resident of Virginia, has a valid Virginia driver's license and therefore was not driving without a license, TMZ said.

Lindsay Lohan was jailed briefly Wednesday after a judge admonished — and occasionally mocked — the actress for "blowing off" her court-ordered community service, but there are doubts she will spend additional time behind bars despite her numerous probation violations. L.A.'s jails are increasingly being filled with felons because of a controversial new law under which convicts who normally would be housed in state prisons are locked up locally instead. "The jails are going to be filled with felons," said Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Stephanie Sautner, noting that because of jailhouse crowding that might not be a good option.
