This guy just can’t get a break and we don’t know who to believe at this point. Recently, news hit that Chris Brown has been accused (by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office) of faking and lying about the hours of community service he completed. Radar Online reports that the 23-year-old failed to provide ‘credible or verifiable evidence’ that he completed his court ordered community labor. According to the legal docs, Judge Patricia Schnegg ordered Brown to perform 180 days of community service, and allowed him to do it in Virginia, where he has a residence. Court documents stated:
“After a thorough review of all documents and evidence submitted to the Court it appears that there are significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst, fraudulent reporting and possible misdemeanors violations. In fact, the evidence shows that although Virginia Probation accepted supervision of Brown, no one from that Department ever approved, scheduled, supervised, monitored, or verified any of the community labor reported to this Court.”
So what does Chris’ camp have to say about this? Chris’ attorney (Mark Geragos) told the Los Angeles Times:
“Apparently the District Attorney’s office has completely lost their minds. They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports. It’s as if they don’t remember what happened in the courtroom. The judge instructed me to get a report to her before the next hearing date, which is exactly what I did.”
No word yet on what any of this means to Chris’ probation.
