LOS ANGELES (AP) - A judge says R&B singer Chris Brown must remain in jail until a hearing in late April because he failed to remain in a court-mandated rehab program.

Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin said Monday that he was troubled by comments that Brown made during his rehab stay in which the singer allegedly said he was good at using guns and knives.

The 24-year-old singer was arrested on Friday after he was dismissed from a Malibu facility where he was being treated for anger management and other issues.

Brown had been in rehab since November, when Brandlin ordered him to receive treatment as part of his sentence for a 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown's attorney Mark Geragos asked that Brown be allowed to enter another rehab program, but Brandlin refused and set a probation violation hearing for April 23.

Prosecutors could ask that Brown remain in jail. They had sought jail time for the Grammy-winning singer last month, but the request was rejected.

Brown had been in rehab since November, when Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlin ordered him to receive treatment for anger management issues.

Brown remains under court supervision after his 2009 attack on the-girlfriend Rihanna hours before the Grammy Awards.
