Chris Brown returns to court
LOS ANGELES — Chris Brown’s probation hearing was pushed back to give authorities more time to complete a probation report in the singer’s assault case.
The R&B singer had been scheduled to appear in court on Monday for the first time in more than a year, but the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office says the proceedings are being delayed for a week.
A judge has ordered an audit of Brown’s community service after a prosecutor said there were some questions about how many hours he had actually performed.
Brown is on probation for the 2009 beating of his then-girlfriend Rihanna and had been ordered to perform six months’ worth of community service, including graffiti removal, roadside cleanup and other manual labor.
He was scheduled to return to a Los Angeles courtroom for the first time in more than a year amid questions about his community service.
Brown has so far completed his terms with praise from a judge, however a prosecutor raised concerns about how many hours he had completed.
The singer has received praise from a judge overseeing his probation for the beating, but an audit of his community service was ordered in July.
