Chris Brown

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"

Put this sleazeball in jail! It will be a disgrace if they don't since he has violated his probation a million times. He fabricated his community service. That is yet another violation of probation it seems to me. Shame on everyone who helped him including Geragos who needs to lose his law license. How dare Geragos say that crap. I hope trying to get sanctions put on the DA backfires on him because it will probably make them go even harder after Chris. Put Chris in jail so he can finally understand what what it is like to get beat down!

This kind of sh*t is our own damn fault. Honestly, we never should have brought their descendants over here as slaves. Now it's biting us in the ass since so many of them are violent thugs like this douche. I mean, just look at how much of our tax dollars are spent locking these idiots up. I really hope for the good of our society this guy dies in a fiery very painful car crash involving nobody but himself.

I never did understand why he wasn't jailed for probation violations - any one of those incidents could have been enough. A conviction isn't required because the standard of proof is lower for probation violation. He was on probation for a violent felony which was quite serious. Read the police report - he nearly killed his girlfriend, even if she's dumb enough to keep going back to him. Probation is given with the condition "Obey all laws" and any police contact should have caused him trouble. At the very least, his actions showed that he still didn't have control over his rage impulses, which makes him a danger to others. Until he learns control, he's just heading toward prison one way or another.

The community service fraud charges don't look good for him. If it's true, he's even stupider than he acts. His mother's involvement is very suspicious. How hard is it to just do the community service like other grownups? 180 hours is just about a month of full-time work. Do it and be done with it.

I'm not saying Chris Brown is a closet homo who likes to visit glory holes in between beating women...but COME on. Look at the guy! He reminds me of the old Hustler Humour cartoons with the stereotypical boy banger. The guy may not be one, but good lord...one look at the fake "hey guys...I sure do loves me some women" swagger comes across as a fake as a three dollar bill. Just come out, Chris. You'll feel better, and all that rage that causes you to beat up women would probably disappear.

Until I see you people screaming and crying for the likes of Charlie Sheen, Sean Penn, Mel Gibson, Josh Brolin to all be locked up. Leave CB alone. Those WHITE boys all beat their women on a regular and Mr Sheen loves to beat his women while they are holding babies in their arms. He loves to drag them across the floor by their hair and punch slap akd kick women.... I dont see all you perfect people screaming for his azz to be locked up. Or dead or what ever..... oh then again in the world there is a double standard. .. as long as your white its your right to beat the sole out of a woman and you can do it as much as you like and still get movie roles and awards now words said ..... Right? You bunch of self righteous hypothetical jerks. Worry about your own lives and what you are doing to keep you in a good light in Gods eyes.... the only one whose opinions matter!!!!

If his probation is revoked and he has to do those 180 days picking up trash it will give him an excellent reason to beat his girlfriend's ass. After all in his mind it's her fault he had to do it the first place. Someone needs to put this guy in check because he is going to kill someone with his temper. Will it be her or another artist or the guy who parks his car. Just a matter of time.
