A warrant was issued for Brown after the singer was booted from the Malibu rehab facility, where he has been seeking treatment for the last four months. During a court appearance last month, the facility confirmed that Brown had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, severe insomnia, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The exact cause to why Brown was booted remains unknown, but TMZ reported Friday that it was unrelated to violence or drugs.
