Chris Brown Community Service Scandal: Police Chief in Charge of Case Resigns

by at . Comments

The Richmond, Va., police chief who signed off on Chris Brown's community service reports has resigned in an interesting new twist to this developing scandal.

Bryan Norwood was the one signing off on the singer's community service hours - which the L.A. County D.A. is now claiming were never performed.

Norwood was instrumental in removing Brown's case from the Richmond Probation Dept., which would have normally handled it, placing it in his own hands.

He also wrote a letter to the court vouching for Chris, claiming all of his community service had been performed (a charge the D.A. is now disputing).

Brown was sentenced to perform 180 hours of community labor after pleading guilty to assault for beating Rihanna; his reports suggest he put in 202.

Did he lie? Did the police chief aid and abet him?

It's unclear, and his lawyer denies it, alleging a conspiracy, but the Mayor of Richmond and Norwood reached a "mutual agreement" for his resignation.

Norwood was rumored to be eyeing a similar job in Raleigh, N.C., but the buzz in Richmond is that the Brown scandal accelerated his decision.

The judge overseeing the Rihanna assault case wants him to verify his hours; if he can't, he's obviously in big trouble and his probation could be violated.

He has until April before his next court date.

The scandal comes amid reports - and obvious photo and video evidence - that Rihanna and Chris Brown are back together and happier than ever.

Clearly he's paid his debt to someone.
