Chris Brown may lose his probation and spend time in jail after Los Angeles prosecutors say he lied about completing his court-ordered community service.
Chris Brown faces a new challenge with his probation — keeping it. Brown is currently in hot water with Los Angeles prosecutors after new allegations surfaced from the district attorney’s office that Brown may have falsified his community service records.
Brown was ordered to complete 180 days of community service after he pleaded guilty to felony assault for beating his then-girlfriend Rihanna just days before the 2009 Grammy Awards. In addition to community service, Brown was put on strict five-year probation and required to receive domestic violence counseling.
ABC News reports Los Angeles prosecutors are now asking a judge to revoke Brown’s probation after finding no credible evidence he completed his community service obligations as originally claimed in Virginia. Moreover, the news outlet says prosecutors also cite “misstatements in [the community service] records, which show the singer performing double shifts in the city and at a day care center where his mother once worked.”
Sounds pretty shady to us. TMZ says the child care center in Tappahannock, Virginia is standing by Chris Brown but that they became extremely defensive when TMZ asked for information of Brown’s supervisor.

A legal analyst for ABC News, Dana Cole, explained that if a judge finds reason to believe the prosecutors’ claim that Chris Brown didn’t complete his community service as required to comply with his probation, it’s likely Brown could spend those 180 hours in jail.
Los Angeles prosecutors filed a motion today and a judge will decide Brown’s probation fate in a matter of hours.
