Chris Brown is in hot water with the LA County District Attorney, who has filed legal documents against him, claiming that he may have LIED about his community service in connection to the Rihanna beating case.
In a letter written to the court on September 14, Chief of Police in Richmond, Virginia, Bryan T. Norwood, said that Chris had successfully completed 202 days of community service (but he was required to do only 180 days!). Here is an excerpt from the letter:
Dear Judge Schnegg,
This is to inform Your Honor of Chris Brown’s Completion of his Community Labor with the Richmond Police department. As of August 24, 2012, Chris Brown has successfully completed approximately 202 days of supervised manual community labor in the Richmond area.
For purposes of the Court records, by way of their correspondence, we over a brief overview of the type of work Mr. Brown performed, which included: Trash removal, debris removal, public park cleanup, washing City owned vehicles in a host of various locations, painting, stripping and waxing floors, and store clean up at horse stables, etc.
Norwood also attached documents showing that Chris frequently worked at Tappahannock Children’s Center – where Chris’ mom was once a director – and did odd jobs such as those things he mentioned in his letter. According to TMZ, he later admitted that the Richmond Police Department only supervised him on 9 or 10 occasions.
Interestingly, Chris Brown apparently never did any community service, because his lawyer, Mark Geragos, literally did the whole thing for him. Look at the way TMZ put it:
‘According to the docs, Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, “instructed” the lawyer for the Richmond P.D. on how to “handle” D.A. investigators’ questions about Chris’ community service.
And Geragos told the probation officer there was a court order that Chris’ community service be removed from the probation department and given to the police chief. Fact is … there was no such court order.’
That’s not all:
‘… the Administrator of the Children’s Center allegedly tried coaching the floor waxing guy on what to say to D.A. investigators, but he refused to lie and in fact had already told investigators he was the only one who waxed the floors for the past 3 years. Chris claimed in docs he waxed the floors on some occasions.
‘By the way, the D.A. claims Chris’ mom was responsible for orchestrating work at the Children’s Center outside of normal operating hours and a key administrator told the D.A. she NEVER saw Chris perform any work at the center.’
And while his mom covered his tracks, Chris went out of the country doing concerts.
Besides, the DA is saying that Chris has other possible probation violations, like his fight with Frank Ocean, failure to obtain travel permit during his probation, weed smoking, tossing a chair through a window in Good Morning America, and allegedly grabbing and smashing a fan’s phone in Miami.
The D.A. has thus called Chris’ documentation ‘at best sloppy … and at worst fraudulent reporting,’ and is asking the judge to reject Chris’ alleged Virginia community service hours and make him fulfill his obligation in L.A. County.
