Chris Brown checked into rehab for anger management after he was jailed on allegations of breaking a man's nose in Washington, D.C. on Sunday.

Brown's lawyer Mark Geragos dropped him off at a Malibu facility Tuesday after Brown said that he wanted help. "We talked today and he said, 'I want to take some time and do a little introspection and understand everything that's going on around me,'" Geragos told the Daily News. "It was his decision, and he should be applauded." Geragos clarified that the stint was not an admission of guilt.

A rep for Brown reiterated that the decision to enter rehab was voluntary. "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," the rep told E! News.

Geragos told reporters that Brown met with his probation officer early on Tuesday and didn't limit the length of his stay in rehab. Brown is still on probation from his 2009 assault on ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown was arrested early Sunday morning in Washington, D.C., when Parker Isaac Adams accused Brown of assaulting him and breaking his nose for photobombing a picture. Brown appeared in front of a judge Monday, where his charge was reduced from felony assault to a misdemeanor. It remains left to be seen if the alleged incident violates his probation, which would give the singer added jail time.
