Chris Brown’s probation has been reinstated and he won’t be heading to jail, but the singer has been ordered to complete 1,000 MORE hours of community labor.

After the L.A. County D.A. accused him of falsifying his community service records earlier this year, the 24-year-old faced the music at a hearing yesterday.

He stood accused of reporting to the probation department that he was picking up trash in his native Virginia when he was on a private jet to Cancun, etc.

He was required to complete 1,440 hours of community labor as part of his 2009 assault conviction (for assaulting Rihanna), which he said he completed it.

The judge wasn’t buying that, but is giving him another chance.


Chris’ probation was revoked in July in the wake of hit-and-run allegations, but that case was dismissed this week, so his probation was reinstated.

On the condition that the star completes an additional 1,000 hours of community service, that is, due to the discrepancy in his original records.

Basically, he won’t get much, if any credit for service he may or may not have completed already, and must do the labor in L.A. County this time.

He can pick between highway cleanup, beach cleanup (obvious choice), probation alternative work service (PAWS), or (ironically) graffiti removal.

Chris must also report to a probation officer within 48 hours.

The probation, assuming his completes these 1,000 hours and doesn’t get it revoked for another reason, is finally coming to an end in October 2014.

Mark your calendars.
