How badly do you have to behave to get tossed out of a rehab center geared to deal with anger management cases?

Just ask Chris Brown.

Better yet, don't ask him.

The R&B bad boy was sent to jail Friday, reports said, after being tossed out of the Malibu rehab facility where he has been getting treatment for four months.

"I can confirm Chris Brown was arrested on a warrant," a Los Angeles County Sheriff source confirmed to the New York Daily News.

It was not immediately known what will happen to Brown next.

TMZ reported that Brown violated the center's "internal rules" Friday. The website said the infractions apparently did not include violence or drug use. But police took the singer into custody Friday and he was being held without bail at the Los Angeles County jail.

The New York Daily News reported a probation report released last month said the 24-year-old singer had been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder and "severe" insomnia. But the report also said Brown had been a model patient up to that point. He entered the facility for a second time last November after allegedly tossing a rock through the window of his mother's car.

The anger management treatment was ordered after Brown pleaded not guilty to an assault charge, stemming from an October arrest for allegedly punching a 20-year-old art student outside the W Hotel. The arrest put Brown in violation of his probation for assaulting then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

Brown's rep declined to comment on the latest development.
