Will a trip to rehab solve all of his troubles?

Chris Brown checked into rehab for anger management on Tuesday, Oct. 29, following an appearance in court the day before. His attorney, Mark Geragos, dropped him off at the facility.

"Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility. His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point," said a rep for the singer to E! News.

His attorney in court, Danny Onorato, said to E! News that Brown had "committed no crime." He was charged with a felony assault after allegedly punching a man in the face during a fight on Sunday morning at the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., according to E! News.

The charge was dropped to a misdemeanor assault and the judge ordered his release. He is scheduled to return to court on Nov. 25. 

Brown is still on probation from his physical altercation with then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009. If convicted, he could face up to 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine, according to E! News.

UPDATE: Chris Brown has been released from rehab and is continuing treatment as an outpatient, according to E! Online. For more information, visit E! Online's official site.
