Chris Brown’s attorney: Lying claim is insane

Chris Brown’s attorney Mark Geragos believes prosecutors in the R&B singer’s assault probation case are “making scurrilous statements” against his client after claiming he was lying.

The R&B singer is currently under a five-year probation for assaulting his then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009.

As part of his sentence Chris is required to complete 180 days of community service.

Although the star received confirmation from police officials that he completed 220 service days, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office filed papers claiming that these supporting documents are fraudulent.

Lawyer Mark believes the DA’s accusations are ridiculous.

“Apparently the District Attorney’s office has completely lost their minds,” Mark told the Los Angeles Times.

“They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports.”

The DA investigated Chris’ claims saying that there was no “credible, competent or verifiable evidence” that his service was accomplished.

The Los Angeles District Attorney alleges that Chris in fact did not fulfill all of his commitments. They claim that the star was even on a private jet to Mexico during one of the days he says he was contributing to the community and was performing concerts internationally during some of the other documented service dates and times.

Chris is also accused of five potential probation violations which include, testing positive for marijuana, fighting with Frank Ocean in January, failing to obtain a travel permit, damaging a fan’s phone in Miami and throwing a chair through a window at the set of Good Morning America.

Chris was sentenced to five years of probation in 2009 and faces possible jail time should he be deemed in violation of probation. He could also redo the community service he has already served.
