Affidavit from police describing Chris Brown assault case

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A judge says Chris Brown has been doing well and following his probation rules since his release from jail in June.

The Grammy-winning R&B singer appeared in a Los Angeles court Wednesday for a progress report.

Judge James Brandlin reduced Brown's drug test requirement from three times to twice a week and said he's been in compliance with his probation officer and cooperating with his therapist.

The probation department asked that his community labor requirement be bumped from three days a week to four, but Brandlin denied the request.

Brown was jailed from mid-March until early June for violating his probation by getting into an altercation outside a Washington, D.C., hotel last year.

He was on probation after he attacked pop singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend, before the 2009 Grammy Awards
