The Virginia police chief caught up in Chris Brown’s community service controversy has resigned.
Chief Bryan Norwood announced he was stepping down from the top post on Tuesday – less than a week after Brown appeared in a Los Angeles court to face questions concerning the 202 hours he claims to have served at the Tappahannock Children’s Center in Virginia.
Brown’s community service is currently under review after Los Angeles County Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray noted “significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting” in the papers provided by Norwood, who signed off on all documents detailing the singer’s work.
Murray highlighted one inconsistency in the report from November, 2011, when Norwood claimed the singer had racked up 103 days of service. However, the Kiss Kiss hitmaker’s probation officer only gave Brown credit for 88 days in a letter dated three months later.
Prosecutors are demanding the case judge reject the star’s community service hours in his native Virginia and make him fulfil his obligation in Los Angeles.
Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, slammed the allegations following his client’s 6 February hearing , branding the accusations “vicious and unwarranted”.
The embattled musician, who is still on probation following his infamous 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna, is due back in court on 5 April.
The Umbrella beauty has since reunited with Brown and the couple put its affections for one another on show by sitting together and hugging during Sunday’s Grammy Awards.
