A Los Angeles judge has revoked Chris Brown’s probation after reading details of an alleged hit-and-run accident and his behavior afterward, but the singer was not ordered to jail. Brown’s lawyer suggested Monday that perhaps the matter will be resolved informally without a major probation hearing. The prosecutor did not ask for Brown to be jailed.

Another hearing is set for Aug. 16.

The singer has been on felony probation since the 2009 beating of former girlfriend Rihanna and been in and out of court since then, making reports on fulfilling the requirements of his probation. In February, the Sheriff’s Department investigated a fight between Brown and singer Frank Ocean at a recording studio, but Ocean decided not to pursue a battery case against Brown. The same month, Brown crashed his Porsche while being chased by paparazzi.
