Cal State Fullerton, which hasn't had a winning men's basketball season since 1993, suffered another setback in its bid to rebuild its program Thursday. The NCAA put Fullerton on probation for four years and restricted the school from giving scholarships to community college transfers for three years for alleged infractions by the program in 1993 and '94, when Brad Holland was head coach. The NCAA also reduced by two the number of scholarships Fullerton can offer each of the next two years.

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.

The NCAA on Tuesday put Washington's football program on probation for two years and limited the Huskies to four televised regular-season games in one of the next two seasons. The school will choose to have that limit imposed in 1995, said Jim Daves, Washington's sports information director. The penalties from the NCAA Committee on Infractions are in addition to those imposed last year by the Pacific 10 Conference, which imposed a two-year bowl ban.

David Cassidy has been sentenced to 90 days' live-in rehab and 60 months' probation after being arrested on suspicion of DUI in January near Los Angeles International Airport. Cassidy's attorney entered a no-contest plea Monday, TMZ first reported. In addition to the rehab and probation, the 63-year-old will have to attend a nine-month alcohol education course and pay various fines. When arrested in January after making what police said was an illegal right turn, he reportedly blew 0.19 on a blood-alcohol breath test, more than twice California's legal limit.

Chris Brown is nowhere near done with his probation now.  The Grammy-winning R&B singer has been ordered to complete an additional 1,000 hours of community labor as a result of prosecutors' accusations that he did not properly report his previous community service hours. Brown's five-year felony probation was revoked in July after misdemeanor hit-and-run allegations brought the singer back to court. That case was dismissed earlier this week, but Judge James Brandlin reinstated Brown's probation when the singer appeared for the hearing Friday and said that he must complete the 1,000 additional hours -- that's 125 days -- by Aug. 25, 2014, according to L.A. Now.

Los Angeles County probation officials say they have made substantial strides in reducing criminal misconduct committed by department employees. They said the improvement -- from 74 cases in 2011 to 32 last year -- was the result of an expanded internal investigations team and the imposition of more stringent professional standards for the department's roughly 5,000 employees. Officers supervise criminals upon their release from jail or prison, or those who are sentenced to probation.

Chris Brown's probation has been revoked again after the singer briefly appeared in court Monday for a progress hearing related to his 2009 conviction in an assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. The move stems from the R&B singer's October arrest in Washington and subsequent misdemeanor assault charge following an altercation in which Brown was accused of hitting a man trying to take a picture of him outside the W Hotel. (Brown is scheduled to appear in D.C. court in connection with the case on Jan. 8.)
