The L.A. District Attorney has filed a case claiming Chris Brown violated his probation by submitting fake community service records. Find out all the possible violations inside and watch the The Fast & The Furious 6 extended first look.
Frank Ocean may not be filing charges against Chris Brown….but the LA District Attorney sure is! According to TMZ, the DA has filed a case claiming Chris violated probation by lying about completing his community service requirements.
The case has a long and murky back story but it begins with Chris being friends with Bryan T. Norwood, the Chief of Police in Richmond, VA. This is the same man who wrote a letter to the judge saying Chris Brown successfully completed 202 days of community service. (mind you…he was only required to perform 180).
So how could Chris slide? Because there were plenty hands in the pot. First, the detective assigned to monitor Chris duties at the Tappahannock Children’s Center (in Richmond) was dismissed (the needed documentation was handled by Chris’ mother instead).
Then, the Richmond P.D. admitted they only supervised Chris 9 or 10 times. The other times, he was on his own.
The case also claims that Chris’ lawyer Mark Geragos, coached the lawyer for the Richmond Police Dept. on "how to "handle" D.A. investigators’ questions about Chris’ community service.
Mark Geragos now looks extra shady since it was also revealed that he told the probation department in Richmond that he had a court order for Chris’ community service to be moved from their department and placed under the watch of the police chief. Too bad there never was an actual court order!
Ish started unraveling once the DA started to think that the community service records were a bit fishy. Also, the docs claimed that the Administrator of the Children’s Center in Richmond tried to coach one of its workers to lie about Chris’ community service. The only problem was that the worker had already told the truth and admitted that he’d been waxing floors for three years and Chris was never there to help.
The D.A. is calling Chris’ documentation sloppy and fraudulent and asking the judge to reject Chris’ alleged Virginia community service hours and make him fulfill his obligation in L.A.
What’s sad is that Chris’ mom is going to be dragged all through this mess because she was in charge of orchestrating his "service" at the Children’s Center, but one key administrator told the D.A. she NEVER saw Chris perform any work.
So, here’s the total rundown of all violations according to TMZ (which includes the Frank Ocean fight):
– The Frank Ocean fight at the recording studio
– Brown testing positive for pot
– Failing to obtain a travel permit
– Allegedly grabbing and throwing a fan’s phone in Miami
– Throwing a chair through a window at "Good Morning America"
Of course, this is Hollywood. But we don’t think Chris is going to be able to totally skirt the system the way Lindsay Lohan can.
