Singer Chris Brown was released early Monday from a Los Angeles County jail, authorities said.
Los Angeles Sheriff’s deputy Tony Moore told The Associated Press that Brown was released at 12:01 a.m. Monday, but he didn’t have any more details.
Brown had been in custody since mid-March, when he was arrested after being expelled from a court-ordered rehab sentence for violating its rules.
Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin had said Brown will have to complete the remainder of his 1,000 hours of community labor once he is released from jail. As of early February, Brown had 800 hours of community labor remaining.
No contest plea
The man who was arrested after jostling with Brad Pitt on a red carpet last week says he was merely trying to give the actor a hug and didn’t mean him any harm.
Vitalii Sediuk says he accepts responsibility for the incident and will spend the next few months dealing with the legal ramifications of his prank, which briefly disrupted the red carpet of the Disney film Maleficent.
The 25-year-old pleaded no contest to battery against Pitt on Friday and was sentenced to three years of probation and a year’s worth of psychiatric counseling.
Los Angeles police are searching for a pair of burglars they say broke into Miley Cyrus’ San Fernando Valley home and got away with jewelry and a luxury car.

They say a man and a woman scaled a fence and got inside the house and garage.
A 2014 Maserati and an unspecified amount of jewelry were taken. Police recovered the Maserati on Monday in Simi Valley and were searching it for evidence.
