Los Angeles County prosecutors yesterday accused Chris Brown of faking his court-ordered community service. Brown was ordered to perform six months of community service as part of his 2009 conviction of assault on Rihanna, and he claims to have completed it. But, in a motion filed by Deputy Dist. Atty. Mary A. Murray, she says she found "significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."

Prosecutors say that on a day that Chris Brown reported picking up trash in an alley, for example, news photographers captured him 100 miles away in Washington, the Los Angeles Times reported

Prosecutors say that Brown should be ordered to repeat the full six months of community service, the Associated Press reported. The motion also states that Brown could face additional misdemeanor penalties for the faked records. At a hearing today, prosecutors are recommending that Brown's five-year probation be revoked.

The case could become an embarrassment for the police department in Richmond, Virginia, where Brown had claimed to do the community service."The motion filed by the DA's office is shameful and a disgrace," Brown's attorney told the AP. "In essence, it calls everyone a liar in the Richmond Police Department and the Virginia Probation Department."
