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.

Good thing Kanye's been such a douchebag, or Chris's douchebagginess would have made him #1. Do all the other prisoners get time out breaks to wave at the media? Can't they add that time on at the end of the day?

This douche-bag should have all his toys taken away so that when he gets home, he has absolutely NOTHING to do but read a book about the wrongs of beating women. As it is, the only difference between him and a regular road crew worker, is the cops. What a f---ing joke that is. Typical celebrity justice.

Are You Serious    

I am really disappointed you TMZ is encouraging the circus and giving the guy more celeb and face time. NO one should ever support this jerk's (or Kanye) again. It is about time we get back to teaching me to act like gentlemen instead of thugs. Please, unless he is dead and we don't have to worry about him walking the streets anymore, don't feature this morong on your site anymore.

Harvey Levin and the staff member, Are you trying to get Charles thrown in jail or put next to Chris Brown?
First you let everyone know he was driving illegally and then want him to pay a gambling debt of $20.00 on tape so he can be prosecuted.
Maybe you just want an undercover reporter with Chris Brown.

I'm older and female, so really no interest in his music , I'm going to start by saying Chris was wrong in what he did to Rhianna, no argument there. But he does deserve some credit, every step of the way he has taken it like a man. Never once did he try to make excuses for what he did, everyday he will be thinking about it, FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE!! His mom now is a different story, she makes alot of excuses. I give him props for how he has behaved this entire time. If Rhianna has forgiven him why can't we? Good luck to you Chris.

A sleeveless shirt is against OSHA regulations and not to mention Brown is lacking some P.P.E. This Brown Inspector issues a penalty of another 180 days...
