Chris Brown was spotted partying the night away just moments after being sentenced in an LA courthouse for assaulting Rihanna. Since the spot that he partied in served alcohol, the 20 year old singer could possibly face charges of violating his 5 year probation order, which clearly states Chris is to “abstain from the use of all alcoholic beverages and stay out of places where they are the chief item of sale.”
I’m almost positive Chris will get out of this one too but E!News spoke with the Los Angeles Probation Department and they’re not taking this lightly:
The singer hit the nightspot Guys & Dolls just hours after receiving a probation order in court.
Los Angeles Probation Department Spokeswoman Kari Webb tells E! News that if Chris Brown broke his probation by being at a “21 and up” establishment, “It won’t be taken lightly.”
“Any time you break the law, you’re in violation,” Webb told E! News when asked whether being underage in a bar would be a probation violation. “If you break the law, you’re in trouble.”
John Carr of the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control tells E! News that Guys & Dolls holds a Type 48 liquor license, which makes it a bar or nightclub and not a restaurant. This means that no one under 21 can legally be on the premises unless they have been hired as a performer. Carr also says that even if an underage entertainer is working in a bar or nightclub, they are required by law to stay in an area where no alcohol is being served or consumed.
While Brown wasn’t seen drinking anything but water, his table ordered 10 bottles of champagne.
So did Brown break the law?
