Chris Brown is staying behind bars. The 24-year-old singer appeared in court on Monday, March 17, and was ordered to remain in jail for another month, the Associated Press reports.

Brown was arrested in Malibu, Calif. on Friday, March 14, after violating his probation. He was dismissed from a Malibu facility where he was receiving treatment for anger management, substance abuse, and issues related to bipolar disorder.

The treatment facility claimed Brown violated three rules: refused to take a drug test, made a statement that alarmed rehab officials, and touched the elbow of a female client. Rehab officials told Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin that Brown said during a group session, "I am good at using guns and knives."

Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, however, claimed the comment Brown made was, "I'm going to ask my higher power to take away my troubles."

In his court hearing on Monday, Brown appeared before Brandlin wearing a bright orange jumpsuit. Brandlin rejected Geragos' request that the singer be released into a different rehab program. Brown has been under court supervision since pleading guilty to felony assault in 2009 of his then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown was sentenced to three months of inpatient rehab after he was charged with misdemeanor assault from a fight late last year in Washington D.C. That trial is scheduled for April 17.
