Chris Brown Lying About Community Service for Rihanna Assault? Breezy's Probation Review
Shortly after beating a woman (you know, Rihanna) and pleading guilty to felony assault charges in 2009, the Superior Court of California slapped Chris Brown on the wrist with a remarkably lenient punishment.
In short, the ill-tempered pop star received five years probation and was ordered to serve six months of community service, which he's already completed.
But according to the Associated Press (via Washington Post), Breezy's court-ordered community service is suspect. And he's due in court later today for a judicial review of his probation.
According to the report, prosecutors ordered an audit of Brown's service hours in July, raising questions about whether or not the entertainer actually completed his sentence.

Brown's troubled past continues to haunt him outside of the courtroom as well.
Last week, an anti-domestic violence group in London stuck faux "warning" labels on several copies of Brown's latest record, Fortune.
"Do not buy this album," the yellow label read. "This man beats women."
Brown also allegedly depicts them on his neck.
