The 'Fine China' singer could end up performing 180 days of community service again if there's enough evidence that he faked his service hours.
Chris Brown was back in court. The R&B singer appeared in front of judge Monday, June 10 for a preliminary hearing in connection to allegation that he violated his probation stemming from a bloody altercation with then-girlfriend Rihanna.
Brown got five years of probation after pleading guilty to assaulting RiRi back in 2009. He was required to obey all laws and perform 180 days of community labor. Although getting sentenced in a Los Angeles court, he was allowed to do his community service in his hometown of Virginia.
In February, however, the District Attorney filed a motion reporting that the singer faked his community service hours. The DA claimed sloppy paperwork, alleging he was actually in other locations when he reported court-mandated service hour.
According CBS, the DA is asking Brown to restart his 1,400 hours of community service under the supervision of a Los Angeles probation officer. The next hearing is set for July 15.
