Chris Brown is a free man!

The 25-year-old singer was released from a Los Angeles County jail at 12:01 a.m. Monday, says L.A. Sheriff’s deputy Tony Moore, E! News can confirm.

Brown has been in custody since mid-March for violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault on Rihanna. On May 9, L.A. Superior Court Judge James R. Brandlinsentenced Brown to one year in jail; he received credit for 234 days of time already served in jail and court-ordered rehab, which left him with 131 days to serve. A number of factors were considered, though, and officials gave the R&B star early release.

Shortly after his release, Brown tweeted, “Humbled and Blessed…Back to the Music and the Fans…Thank you GOD.”

Brown’s probation is extended until Jan. 23, 2015, and he will be required to submit to random drug testing at least three times a week, participate in psychiatric counseling two times a week and attend outpatient therapy at least twice a week. He also must complete whatever remains of the 1,000 additional hours of community service he was given last August when his probation was revoked following a car accident. (Charges related to the crash were later dismissed.)

He’s due back in court Aug. 13 for a progress report.
