In the wake of his arrest in the nation's capital this weekend, the oft-troubled Chris Brown is headed off to rehab.

While Brown doesn't outwardly appear to be a user and abuser of drugs and other substances, he is likely seeking treatment of a different sort -- perhaps for his anger issues. His main problem is his hair-trigger temper and his instant hostility, in addition to bad decision-making, which often finds him reacting with his fists.

Brown was arrested on Sunday (Oct. 27) over an assault. It was a "he said, he said" mess and all we really know is that Brown was in trouble with the law...over an outburst…again.

Since Brown, 24, faces prison time due to his most recent shenanigans, it's likely that's the reason he opted to seek treatment, which always looks good to a judge.

His rep issued a statement about Breezy's situation. It read as follows:

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.

Ah, okay. So Breezy is going to check his head. It sounds like he is stepping away from the spotlight to gain some introspection and to learn to modify his behavior or unlearn his bad habits.

Whatever the case, PopCrush wishes him the best in Breez-hab.
