Judge to keep a close eye on Chris Brown

LOS ANGELES — A judge Thursday ordered Chris Brown to remain on supervised probation and make another court appearance after he completes an overseas tour.

Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg did not address questions raised at a previous hearing about whether the R&B singer had completed the terms of his community labor sentence.

A prosecutor said a report filed for Thursday’s hearing did not add additional details about Brown’s service as previously requested by the court. Instead, it included the same spreadsheet of Brown’s hours that Schnegg called “somewhat cryptic” at a September hearing.

Brown remains on supervised probation for felony assault for an attack on Rihanna in 2009. He is scheduled to begin a tour that spans several countries in Europe and South Africa on Nov. 14. Brown is scheduled to return to court Jan. 17.
