After spending over two months in jail, Chris Brown was released from custody at 12:01 a.m. Monday, according to the Associated Press.

The singer was first jailed in mid-March when he was arrested for violating the rules of a court-mandated rehab sentence. Before that, Brown was on probation for attacking singer and then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, and in May, he admitted to violating that probation by getting into a fight in Washington, D.C. Following this admission, the judge ordered Brown to remain in jail for an extended sentence.

Now that Brown has been released, he must serve 1,000 hours of community labor as part of his sentence. As of February, he’s already served about 200 of those hours.
