LOS ANGELES, Calif. - A judge has revoked Chris Brown's probation because of his arrest for allegedly hitting a man in Washington, D.C., earlier this year.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin ordered Brown on Monday to return to court Feb. 10 for another update. The judge told Brown he is still required to perform 1,000 hours of community labour as part of his sentence for the beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Brown was also ordered to stay in rehab. Brandlin said probation officials reported that Brown is doing well in treatment.

The Grammy-winning singer was arrested in October after a man accused the R&B singer of hitting him after he tried to get a photo with the star.

A probation report that Brandlin cited for his decision was not immediately available.
