Chris Brown had a probation hearing today in California and uh oh…he tested positive for marijuana but in Virginia (which could jeopardize his probation). Brown will not face any repercussions just yet and will have to make his way back to court in November, but he will have to report to his probation officer within three days. Rihanna tweeted well wishes to her former beau!

Chris Brown, who is on probation for the 2009 assault of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, tested positive for marijuana during a test in Virginia recently, it was revealed during a progress report hearing Monday afternoon, is reporting.

Despite the finding, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg has decided not to immediately find Brown in violation of his probation, but she has scheduled a November 1 hearing to discuss whether she should do so.

Brown has been ordered to report to his probation officer within the next 72 hours.

The Grammy award winning singer presented the Virginia probation officials with a California marijuana card, however Schnegg admonished Brown, saying: “Young people look up to you, you can’t be acting like this.”

Schnegg also ordered that Brown’s probation requirements be finished in California, because of ongoing concerns with discrepancies about how much community labor he has actually completed.

The Virginia probation department also said in the probation report that Brown had violated terms of his travel restrictions.

If the judge determines that Brown violated terms of his probation, he could be sent to state prison. Brown’s mother, Joyce Hawkins was with her son in court.

Rihanna tweeted words of encouragement before the progress report hearing to Chris, and he responded! ‏ “’@rihanna: @chrisbrown I’m praying for you and wishing u the best today!’ : thank u so much.”
