Chris Brown Puts Himself Behind Bars

9/16/2009 6:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

We finally got video from Chris Brown's first day of hard labor -- a day that included waving to cameras, adoring fans ... and hours of actual, respectable, tough sweat-inducing work.

Chris Brown: Click to watch
In the footage, obtained by NBC12 in Virginia, Brown can be seen using a rake to hack away at weeds -- while sporting an orange vest, a wifebeater and a stylish red baseball cap.

Several times during his court-ordered day of cleanup, Brown took a break from the weed-pulling to wave and smile for the cameras ... while armed police officers monitored the entire thing.

After his day was over, Brown was allowed to return to his home ... where he's already Twittering again.

Hard Labor??? Come on TMZ...you are putting down most of your readership by saying that Brown was doing "respectable, tough sweat-inducing work." But then again...by the looks of the eople in your newsroom, they haven't seen respectable, tough sweat-inducing work either...

It's fitting that he's picking up trash because he IS trash!!! I really hope that no one ever buys his albums ever again or supports him in any way. He'll try to make a comeback in the music industry, but I hope people are smart enough to boycott his music. What he did to Rhianna should never be forgiven or forgotten.

He will never recover his credibility!!! George Michael was arrested for trying to hump a undercover cop in a men's bathroom and Hugh Grant for soliciting a hooker. Their careers never really recovered and I feel Chris Brown will suffer the same fate. No one forgives a woman beater. If he had picked up a hooker or gotten into a brawl in a bar, then okay. But he beat up a young attractive woman and just like Kanye, his credibility is in the can. He was the shining example of clean and wholesomeness. No more. He can sing his way into obscurity as far as I'm concerned.

People who underestimate Chris Brown and his career underestimate the insatiable desire of girls who want to be spanked and beaten by a musical celebrity.

Dropping more life knowledge as it comes to hand.
Love, shuffler.

People who think Rihanna is an angel are in for a rude awakening. I'm sure Chris has some stories he is too manly and PR-sensitive to admit.

Peace, shuffler
