Chris Brown is due back in court April 5 over allegedly faking his community service hours, and this is definitely not going to help his case.
Richmond, Virginia Police Chief, Bryan Norwood has officially put in his resignation, and he just so happens to be the authority figure that signed off on all of Breezy’s community service hours, stemming from the 2009 Rihanna incident.

The embattled police chief of Richmond, Va., resigned today, after he was accused of sloppy work that allowed Chris Brown to allegedly fake his way through community service.
Bryan Norwood, who had been his city’s top cop since 2008, came under intense scrutiny last week when Los Angeles prosecutors said R&B crooner Brown logged hours of work in Richmond that he couldn’t have possibly done. [...]
Richmond police allegedly signed off on Brown’s claims that he picked up trash in that city, on days when the recording artist was partying across the globe, LA prosecutors said.
Brown claimed he picked up trash in Richmond between 9 a.m and 5 p.m. on Dec. 12, 2011. But Department of Homeland Security records showed Brown cleared customs at Dulles International Airport, 120 miles away, at 6:44 a.m. that day, after landing from Dubai, LA prosecutors said.
“It would be unreasonable to believe that after a 12-13 hour flight, the defendant rushed through … early morning rush traffic, traveled directly to Richmond in just over two hours, and then worked eight straight hours picking up trash,” Deputy DA Mary Murray wrote.
Then Brown claimed he picked up trash in Richmond on March 15, last year, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Again, Homeland Security records appeared to contradict Brown, who jetted off to Cancun at 4 p.m. that same day, LA officials said.
The DA in the case is asking for all of the hours Breezy clocked in Virginia to be thrown out, and require him to complete them in Los Angeles instead.
SMH I have a feeling we may be seeing Christopher scooping up trash again in the near future…
