Chris Brown's attorney isn't staying quiet when his client is accused of faking documentations of his community service. After the Los Angeles County district attorney was asking the court to decline to accept Brown's labor, Mark Geragos says, "Apparently the district attorney's office has completely lost their minds."

"They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports," Brown's lawyer adds. He also tells the Los Angeles Times that he urges the Richmond Police Department to "take legal action against the Los Angeles County district attorney."

The prosecutors earlier filed a 19-page brief asking the court to deny Brown's service and make him fulfill his obligation in L.A. County instead. They claimed there were discrepancies in the number of hours Richmond police reported Brown served, "indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."

"Representations made by the Richmond Police Department regarding supervision, completion, documentation and reporting of the defendant's labor are inconsistent, unreliable and cannot be attributed to any source," an excerpt of the filing read.

Brown was sentenced to 180 days of community service after pleading guilty to a felony count of assault for attacking Rihanna in 2009. He is still on five years probation.
