Brown was ordered hard community labour duties and told to maintain a physical distance from the R&B lady after pleading guilty to assaulting her.
The judge at the LA court also fined the 20-year-old 4,000 pounds and ordered him to attend a domestic violence-counselling programme, along with cautioning the singer against a jail sentence if he broke a five-year probation, reports The Daily Express.
According to the police report filed after the attack, a screaming woman, was described to be very upset and crying. Rihanna narrated the incident to the cops, apparently telling them the then couple had a row earlier in the evening in February at a pre-Grammy awards party, and it continued while they were on their way home in Brown's car.
After she became enraged and slammed both of her fists against the dashboard, Brown pulled the car over and tried to shove her out before hitting her, it was reported. He then purportedly drove away while continuing to beat her with his right hand as he steered with his left.
Rihanna, in between a series of brutal punches and bites, allegedly tried to contact her assistant to seek help, leaving Brown fuming even more. Brown reportedly told her, “You just did the stupidest thing ever! Now I'm really going to kill you!"
