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.

Before he was sentenced there were a lot of references to his having to do 8 hours of "hard labor" each day for 180 days. Now that he is in Virginia and in the program it turns out that a day for him is 3-5 hours and the work days are not consecuitive.

I suspected that he was getting somekind of break on his already very light sentence and it turns out I was right. He is not doing 180 days, he is available for 180 days. How many days he actually does this work will be far less. Since the work day is 3-5 hours his sentence should have been called part time on some days.

California justice strikes again.

"People who think Rihanna is an angel are in for a rude awakening."

You're seriously braindamaged. Probably got beaten too often for talking back, better get away from the keyboard & back into the kitchen before he gets home.

WHY THESE PEOPLE ARE SO BITTER ABOUT CHRIS? HE WAS A GGOD EXEMPLE FOR TENAGERS UNTIL A SCORN OLDER WOMAN SET HIM UP. JUST BECAUSE HE WAS MAKING MORE MONEY THAN HER. SHE IS A DIVA SHE FORGOT WHERE SHE CAME FROM. ANOTHER COUNTRY TO THIS WONDERFUL LAND OF OPPORTUNITIES. THIS POOR KID IS BEEN MENTALY ABUSED FROM HER. I HOPE CHRIS NEVER GO BACK TO HER CUSE SHE IS LIKE A SNAKE IN THE GRASS. CHRIS GOOD LUCK I AM A GRAMO AND I GIVE YOU MY BLESSINGS THAT EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OK. SOME POSTER IS RIGHT RIANNA ISN'T AN ANGEL AND PLEASE FIND YOURSELF A YOUNG LADY THAT DO NOT ABUSE YOU FISICALY AND MENTALY. YOU WERE BRAIN WASH BY HER SHE LOOKS LIKE A MAN WITH OUT MAKE-UP. KEEP UP THE GOOD JOB AND DO NO PUT ATTENTION TO THIS KIDS POSTING BAD THINGS ABOUT YOU. THANK YOU TMZ FOR YOUR NEWS. ITS ALWAYS INTERESTING. I AM A WHITE OLD LADY AND BELIVE AND SEE WHAT IS RIGHT IS RIGHT, AND WHAT IS WRONG IS WRONG. IT TAKES TWO TO TANGLE. AND SHE (RIANNA) STARTED ALL.

"Wifebeater" lol! This is hilarious. Looks like he is having a grand time, but this is only the first day. His real punishment I think is seeing Ri perform her hit song with Jay and K.

Chris is still young and growing and learning early in his life and thats good. hes paying ! i wish everyone would let this go because its over and done with. he learned the hard way and I'm glad he got caught but i think hes gonna come out a better person. as far as R Kelly.....HES A GROWN MAN AND KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING. HE LIKES LITTLE GIRLS AND HE BELONGS IN PRISON BUT HES PROBABLY OUT EATING CAVIAR AND WATCHING LITTLE KID PORN. HES SICKER THEN SICK. CHRIS GOT MORE BS THE R KELLY DID AND R KELLY DID WORSE! CHRIS IS GONNA COME OUT OF THIS A BETTER PERSON. HES DOING WHAT HE HAS TO DO . NOW IF HE EVER DID IT AGAIN THEN YES HE BELONGS IN JAIL JUST LIKE R KELLY DOES RIGHT NOW. WHY IS IT THAT CHILD MOLESTERS DONT GET MUCH TIME IN JAIL BUT A PERSON WHO BOUGHT A JOINT ON THE STREET COULD GET A LONG TIME IN JAIL?? GET THESE DAMN CHILD MOLESTERS IN JAIL AND HAVE THEM STAY IN THERE FOR A VERY LONG TIME I'M NOT TAKING SIDES , I'M JUST SAYING WHAT I THINK IS RIGHT.
