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"

Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan is somewhere, working on her 27th arrest. Not saying Chris Brown is a saint but if he gets punishment and she does not, something is wrong.

A policeman told me once when my husband was arrested for domestic violence - "once a beater, always a beater. Once a cheater, always a cheater." Seems like CB is the poster boy for bad behavior.

Lock him up and throw away the key already! If this was a normal person they would have been in jail a long time ago. Why are celebrities exempt from the law?! He's a thug, woman-beating, bully.

As a Chris Brown fan, I am very disappointed to hear he may have lied and not really done the required work. I have no respect for cheaters, liers or lazy people. How low to lie about painting, cleaning and whatnot if he really didnt. What kind f mom does he have to orchestrate it all. No wonder he's still getting into basically altercations he never learned a lesson or got punished,

He should get more time for turning in fraudulent paperwork showing he did his community service. And they should charge anyone involved in helping him do so.

At the moment where we're more concerned with Chris Brown than ramping up troops in Afghanistan, we are actually buying into a false reality that actually has a material impact on people around the globe. More people watch American Idol than the evening news. More people read gossip blogs than scripture, so when you live in a moment where those are the realities, you're really seeing something that's very, very dangerous! Celebrity worship, coupled with the Internet and cable TV, have interfered with news cycles and have forced news media to vigorously compete for ratings. The news has always been slanted, but at least it was news, now what passes for news can seem like a never ending deluge of gossip, paparazzi pics, rumors, sexual titillation and petty beefs overblown into major conflicts. Society has seen a 24-hour expansion of news, which sustains the public's attention with arguing, fluff segments, sex and music—rather than intelligent, honest debate. Instead of spending more time consuming news, information, and assessing the terrain that they are facing on every day, American people spend more time engaged in that which is foolish and against nurturing their better selves. You have folks who won't go to school, who'll get up at six in the morning on a Saturday, where no commercials are playing, to get the newest Nikes. You have folks that will live in the hood, and can barely pay their electricity that will find money and resources and find a way to get a loan to get a BMW! I HATE AMERICA!! YOU PEOPLE KILLED ME!!!

Let's see.Just for kiks let's say someone has a history of lying , being a phony, no integrity or self respect. If they just come across as loud mouthed wannabe & they tell you something, do you take their word on it? We can put on a "shocked" act if you need us to.but I don't see the point. Just sayin'

Why am I not surprised. It is after all California.


Like someone said a little while ago. Didn't anyone VERIFY anything before signing off on the paperwork.


The worst part is that he may be guilty as hell and he'll get off.


From the governor on down. All the way down. They are all incompetent. A chimp could run things that state.


What's it going to take for you californians to wake up and make things right?
