City Hall reacts to allegations about Brown's community labor

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Some are wondering what the Chris Brown court proceedings in Los Angeles mean locally and what kind of consequences the accusations will have for the Richmond Police Department and its chief, whose future is already in question.

Wednesday, City Hall reacted. Mayor Dwight Jones' press secretary wrote in an email, "We will certainly be monitoring and reviewing the findings and responding accordingly."

Now, some are questioning if this might be the straw that breaks the camel's back when it comes to Chief Bryan Norwood's employment at RPD.

The court documents are strongly worded. The LA County prosecutor says Richmond Police records are "at best sloppy documentation and at worst, fraudulent reporting."

NBC12 put together a timeline from the filings district attorneys say back up their claims, which cast doubt on whether Brown could possibly have done all the community labor shown in Richmond Police documents.

On October 23 of 2010, Brown reportedly did 8 hours of community service in the 300 block of West Grace Street, but widely documented news stories show the R and B star was actually in Washington, D.C. hosting a charity event that day.

Then, on December 12 of 2011, the RPD spreadsheet has Brown doing trash pickup for 8 hours on North 22nd Street, but prosecutors allege Department of Homeland Security records show Brown's passport was cleared from Dubai just before 7am.

They say, "It would be unreasonable to believe that after a 12-13 hour flight, the Defendant rushed through Customs and the Washington, D.C. early morning rush hour traffic, traveled directly to Richmond in just over two hours, and then worked eight straight hours picking up trash in a one block area."

Finally on March 15 of last year, police reported Brown again doing trash pickup for most of the day; this time in the third precinct. At the same time, the district attorney says private airline information has the Tappahannock native on a plane to Cancun. In this case, documents allege it would be impossible for Brown to be in two places at one time.

They also say the math is inconsistent and simply doesn't add up. The spreadsheet claims a total of 1402 hours of community labor, when the court order mandates 1440 hours.

Wednesday, a police spokesperson told NBC12 "it would be inappropriate to comment on a matter before the court." A day later, we were told again the chief has nothing to offer. He also did not respond to emails.
