D.A. alleges Chris Brown failed to complete community service

Los Angeles County prosecutors on Tuesday accused singer Chris Brown of failing to complete his court-ordered community service for his 2009 assault conviction and questioned whether the documents submitted as proof of his service were fraudulent. A motion filed by the district attorney's office said that Brown claimed he completed four hours of trash pickup between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. on one day when he was actually on a private plane to Cancun that he boarded at 4 p.m. Responding to allegations that his client faked fulfilling his community service, Brown's attorney accused Los Angeles County prosecutors Tuesday of making "scurrilous" statements against his client and said he plans to ask a judge to sanction prosecutors. Mark Geragos told The Times he encouraged the Richmond Police Department to "take legal action against the Los Angeles County district attorney," which alleged Tuesday that Brown violated his probation by not abiding by the terms of his court-ordered community labor in his home state of Virginia. "Apparently the district attorney's office has completely lost their minds," Geragos said. "They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports."
