    Talk about in and out.

    Chris Brown went to a jail in Van Nuys, Calif., and turned himself in on Monday in connection with his ongoing hit-and-run case.

    But he wasn't there for long.

    According to the booking report obtained from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, the singer arrived at 2:40 p.m. and was released less than an hour later.

    No bail was set and he was released on his own recognizance.

    NEWS: Chris Brown sued by fan for alleged nightclub assault

    Last month, Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos, entered a plea of not guilty on the Grammy winner's behalf to a charge of hit-and-run.

    The misdemeanor stems from a May 21 incident in which Brown was accused of hitting a California woman's car and allegedly refusing to give his driver's license number and then leaving the scene.

    A judge stipulated that because Brown wasn't arrested, he must turn himself in and provide proof of booking to the court by no later than Aug. 6. Which, of course, now he has done. One day ahead of schedule.

    As a result of the mishap, a judge revoked Brown's felony probation from his 2009 assault of Rihanna and set a probation violation hearing for Aug. 18.

    Meanwhile, a trial in the hit-and-run matter was scheduled for Aug. 15.
