Perhaps Brown is channeling his frustrations into creative energy. Around the time of the late-night music-making, he ranted about his renewed probation drama on his newly private Instagram.TMZ. “Im a human being and I honestly think I deserve respect Im sick of being accused … Im tired yall Just don’t understand Ive been going through this sh*t since I was 19 years old .. You cant sit here and tell me to calm down, when am I gonna get a positive outcome out of anything I do?”
The tirade came after the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office accused the singer of falsifying court-ordered community service filings on Tuesday. Now Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos is condemning the claims as “scurrilous” and calling on a judge to sanction said prosecutors.
“Apparently the district attorney’s office has completely lost their minds,” Geragos told the Los Angeles Times. “They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports.”
In a 19-page motion filed by Deputy District Attorney Mark Murray on Tuesday, the DA’s office asked the court to decline Brown’s community service, charging the Grammy-winning singer with failing to “credible, competent or verifiable evidence” that he completed his 180 days of court-ordered labor, part of his five-year probation stemming from his 2009 felony assault of recently-reconciled girlfriend Rihanna, according to a press release.
At the time of his August 2009 sentencing, Brown was given permission to complete the probationary order in his home state of Virginia. But according to the motion, investigators of the district attorney’s office discovered “discrepancies” and possibly “fraudulent reporting” in Brown’s account after speaking with Virginia community service supervisors involved his probation. Furthermore, no one from the Virginia Probation Department “ever approved, scheduled, supervised, monitored, or verified any of the community labor.”
Brown’s probation hoopla comes on the heels of an investigation into his late-night brawl with fellow hip-op artist Frank Ocean. More the a week after the two came to blows in the parking lot of a Los Angeles-area recording studio, authorities announced will soon close the case without any charges being sought by either side, despite Ocean originally being “desirous of prosecution.”
