Chris Brown

D.A. Moves to Violate Probation ...

Says Community Service May Have Been FAKED

2/5/2013 1:22 PM PST UPDATED: 2/5/2013 2:28 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


2:10 PM PT -- Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, is lashing out at prosecutors ... saying the motion to revoke Chris' probation is "shameful and a disgrace."

Geragos told the Associated Press he believes the motion is defamatory -- adding, "In essence, it calls everyone a liar in the Richmond Police Department and the Virginia Probation Department."

Geragos says he will seek sanctions from the District Attorney's Office for filing a "frivolous, scurrilous and frankly defamatory motion."

The L.A. County District Attorney has filed legal documents claiming Chris Brown has violated his probation by submitting bogus community service records  ... claiming in one case he swore he was picking up trash in Virginia when he was actually on a PRIVATE JET TO CANCUN ...TMZ has learned.

We've learned the D.A. is alleging in legal docs Chris Brown may have LIED when he claimed he had performed all of his community service in connection with the Rihanna beating case.

Bryan T. Norwood, the Chief of Police in Richmond, VA., wrote a letter to the judge on September 14, claiming Brown successfully completed 202 days of community service -- he was only required to perform 180.  

Norwood attached documents showing that Brown frequently worked at Tappahannock Children's Center -- a place where Brown's mom was once a director -- and did odd jobs such as painting, washing windows, waxing floors, cutting grass and picking up trash.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ ... the Richmond P.D. admits they only supervised Brown on 9 or 10 occasions and on all other dates he was not supervised by anyone.

And get this ... the detective who had been assigned to oversee Brown's community service was told she did not have to continue monitoring at the Children's Center.  The times, location and types of duty were provided by Chris Brown's mother.

The D.A. claims Chris and the Chief of Police had a prior relationship.

And there's more.  According to the docs, Chris' lawyer, Mark Geragos, "instructed" the lawyer for the Richmond P.D. on how to "handle" D.A. investigators' questions about Chris' community service.

And Geragos told the probation officer there was a court order that Chris' community service be removed from the probation department and given to the police chief.  Fact is ... there was no such court order.

Pretty ironic -- during a progress hearing back in November, Geragos brazenly said the prosecutor had a "doubting attitude" for questioning a probation report which said Brown had met all his terms and conditions.

And there's more ...  the Administrator of the Children's Center allegedly tried coaching the floor waxing guy on what to say to D.A. investigators, but he refused to lie and in fact had already told investigators he was the only one who waxed the floors for the past 3 years.  Chris claimed in docs he waxed the floors on some occasions.

The judge was suspicious when the community service documents were filed, and sources tell us the D.A. began investigating and found no "credible, competent or verifiable evidence" that Brown did the 180 days community service.

Sources tell TMZ ... there's no way Chris could have performed community service on some of the days, because he was out of the country doing concerts.

The D.A. calls Chris' documentation "at best sloppy ... and at worst fraudulent reporting."

The D.A. is asking the judge to reject Chris' alleged Virginia community service hours and make him fulfill his obligation in L.A. County.

By the way, the D.A. claims Chris' mom was responsible for orchestrating work at the Children's Center outside of normal operating hours and a key administrator told the D.A. she NEVER saw Chris perform any work at the center.

And the D.A. is also saying there are other possible probation violations, including:

-- 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"

Chrissy, Chrissy...had to get Mommie's help to lie about Community Service?, my...maybe Mom should have taught her little man how to be a real man. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree and everything CB does now reflects not only on himself but how he was raised. Someone dropped the ball with this irresponsible juvenile...he needs to man-up.

I'm sitting in Tappahannock as I type this. It's pretty well know when he is in town and I can promise I have not heard word one of him being here. Maybe he did his service at night, but most people notice when is Lambo comes into this "one horse town". ODD I call BS on the report. But who am I. New York Daily news reports were down here the other week doing a story on him. They couldn't find anyone to talk to them. So good luck proving he didn't do his hours at the day care center.

I hope they pick him up and put him in a cell before the week is out. If they keep him there for a few months maybe he'll learn to stop being a bully.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but it seems as if the devil is at work here. Let the man do him and not cast judgement or what you don't know about. The problem with this world is that we give energy to the wrong s*** while not paying attention to how you can improve yourself.

For all the people who are leaving racist comments I can say I have never been arrested. I am almost finished my bachelors in sociology, and I do notHey Ronda its Sandrine, the check is the leftover money from my scholarship minus tuition. We have to get a new car now instead of fixing the nissan because the mechanic is now saying it will cost 1800$ to fix everything because there are more pressing issues think Chris Brown is a good person.
