Chris Brown could be in some real legal trouble. For now, though, he's still a free man.
At a status hearing, the singer had his probation revoked because he broke the terms of his agreement when he traveled outside the county without prior approval when he performed in a San Jose nightclub.
During that performance, a shooting occurred, injuring five people. Although the judge noted that there was no evidence linking Chris to the shootings (aside from his sheer presence), his probation officer wasn't so quick to dismiss his defacto involvement.
"There is also concern that when he performs or attends at some of his public events, people will get shot or seriously injured," the officer told the court, referring to another shooting at a nightclub that Chris was at on the evening before the MTV Music Awards.
Chris has been on probation since his 2009 attack on Rihanna.
At the Jan. 15 hearing, the officer also brought up other times that Chris has been arrested while on probation -- once when he was kicked out of rehab, and another time for a Washington D.C. assault.
A March 20 hearing has been set to determine Chris's fate. According to TMZ, if the judge rules that the singer "willfully" violated terms of his probation, prison time would not be out of the question.
