The Police Chief involved in the Chris Brown community service ordeal has resigned from his position.
According to TMZ, Bryan Norwood Chief of the Police Department in Richmond, Virginia, was intimately involved in certifying Brown’s community service hours. The Los Angeles District Attorney, on the other hand, claim that these hours were falsely reported. Norwood was instrumental in removing Brown’s case from the Richmond Probation Department, in which he placed solely in his hands. Norwood also wrote a letter to the court vouching for the singer stating that all of his community service hours had been performed, reported TMZ.
The Mayor of Richmond says the office and the Chief reached a “mutual agreement” for his resignation. The had been speculations that the police chief was in the works of resigning to take a similar job in Raleigh, North Carolina. The controversy with Chris Brown only made his decision to take the job a swifter move.
The judge of the case has asked Brown to verify his community service hours. If he cannot produce any evidence, his probation can be violated.
Chris Brown was given 180 community service hours for his case against abusing singer Rihanna. The Los Angeles D.A claims that the hours were falsified by the Community Center, where Brown’s mother works, and that Norwood was involved in covering up.
