Chris Brown is taking on a new project…and this one does not include singing or dancing. As of Friday, Brown’s probation has been reinstated and he has agreed to serve 1,000 hours of community labor in regards to his “uncompleted” probation for assaulting his ex-girlfriend, Rihanna, in 2009. What’s that J.T. song…? Oh yeah, “What goes around, goes around, goes around, comes all the way back around…”
Initially, Brown was sentenced to serve more than 1,400 hours in “labor oriented service” due to the RiRi incident. This past February, Brown was accused of not completing the labor. In fact, District Attorney, Jackie Lacey said the paperwork he submitted for his service was “fraudulent” and “sloppy”. At one point, Brown claimed that he was cleaning up trash in Virginia, when in reality he was on a private jet to Cancun.
Last month, Chris’s Range Rover rear-ended Los Angeles resident’s, Olga Gure’s, Mercedes. When Brown refused to show his license to Olga, she took a picture of the scene, which included Brown and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran. Supposedly Brown went “ballistic” when Olga took the picture. He was sued for leaving the scene before showing the correct insurance details and I.D. information. Fortunately for Brown this incident forced a judge to revoke Chris’ Rihanna probation. Though the charges against Brown were dropped, the judge then decided to re-instate a new probation for the singer…from scratch, with a whole new set of hours.
Brown’s near future (1,000 hours of it) will be spent on the road…not touring, but rather dabbling in freeway and beach trash cleanup as well as some janitorial work for the country probation department. This time L.A. County officials will supervise him to make sure he is actually doing the work. Chris’s probation will end in August 2014.
