The judge said Brown cannot leave the country and must call in daily to pretrial services. The Associated Press reports the judge allowed Brown to be released from house arrest as well in order to fulfill contracts with ESPN and comedian Kevin Hart.

The news station in Miami reported Brown, 31, was released on $110,000 bond Friday. He was originally ordered to wear a GPS monitor, undergo a mental health evaluation and drug and alcohol testing upon his release.
