Channa had been the Buddha’s charioteer while the latter was still a prince living in the palace. Because of his prior connection with the Buddha, he was obdurate and refused to submit to discipline. This imposition of the “higher penalty” (brahmadanda) in the Maha-Parinibbana Sutta changed him into an obedient monk.
