(USA TODAY) -- Chris Brown has decided to try to get some help.
The star, who was arrested in Washington over the weekend after getting into a fight, "has elected to enter a rehab facility," his rep, Nicole Perna, tells USA TODAY.
"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."
Brown, 24, is still on probation from his 2009 assault incident with his then-girlfriend Rihanna. His probation will end on Aug. 25, 2014, according to E! News, which had reported earlier this week that friends and family were hoping he would enter rehab. Any arrest could be considered a violation of this probation, which could result in jail time.
Boxer Mike Tyson had advice for Brown this week, telling a New York radio station: "Chris should know this ... if you're not humble in this world, this world will dress humbleness upon you."
