Chris Brown just landed in hot water…again.
Despite getting off scot-free after singer Frank Ocean decided not to file charges against him after a parking lot scuffle on Jan. 27 which apparently left Ocean injured, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office is not as forgiving.
District Attorney Jackie Lacey said today that Brown failed to provide “credible, competent or verifiable evidence” that he completed his community service which he was ordered to fulfill by the court in connection with his part in the brutal assault against Rihanna in 2009, according to a press release obtained by Celebuzz.
The motion filed by the D.A.’s office also lists his bust-up with Ocean, who according to court documents was punched in the side of the face and continuously hit by members of Brown’s entourage who threatened to “shoot” him saying, “[W]e can bust on you too.”
According to a TMZ report, Ocean, who is openly gay, also told police he was called a “f**got” during his brawl with Brown.
Other potential probation violations stated by the D.A. include Brown’s marijuana use after he tested positive June 18, 2012 and his infamous interview in Good Morning America in 2011, after which he threw a chair into a glass window.
Brown’s five-year probationary sentence after pleading guilty to one felony count of assault also came with 180 days of community labor that he was allowed to complete in his home state of Virginia; that is now coming under the microscope in what the D.A. has called “significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting.”
According to the motion filed in court Feb. 5, the D.A.’s office requested additional accounting of Brown’s community service hours after “discrepancies” were found in the reports. District Attorney’s Office investigators also traveled to Virginia to talk to individuals involved in the singer’s community service supervision that revealed “no credible, competent, or verifiable evidence that Brown performed his community labor as represented to this Court” and that no one from the Virginia Probation Department “ever approved, scheduled, supervised, monitored, or verified any of the community labor.”
13 Photos The D.A.’s office claims in the motion that after conducting its interviews, Brown did not work to a specific schedule but showed up based on his own availability; in addition, the DA claims the singer’s mother Joyce Hawkins set up some of his work outside of normal working hours at a Virginia children’s center and that the singer was actually not even in the state on certain reported dates presented to the court.
The district attorney is requesting that the court decline his Virginia community service and that he continue to fulfill his obligation in Los Angeles County.
Brown is due back in Los Angeles court Wednesday to update a judge on his progress.
