Whelp, this certainly doesn’t bode well for Chris Brown.
Bryan Norwood, the chief of the Richmond, Virginia Police Department involved in the scandal surrounding Chris the Fist Brown’s community service scandal, has resigned.
TMZ reports the resignation was a mutual decision by the Mayor of Richmond’s office and Norwood, who has been accused by the Los Angeles District Attorney of knowingly signing off on hours Brown never performed – and in fact, helped Chris to fake the time for his probation officer:
Bryan Norwood, Chief of the PD in Richmond, Virginia, was intimately involved in certifying Brown’s community service hours — hours the L.A. County D.A. claims were never performed. Norwood was instrumental in removing Brown’s case from the Richmond Probation Dept. and placing it squarely in his hands. Norwood also wrote a letter to the court vouching for Chris … claiming all of his community service had been performed.
The Mayor of Richmond says his office and the Chief reached a “mutual agreement” for his resignation.
There had been speculation for weeks the Chief might have resigned to get a similar job in Raleigh, North Carolina, but the buzz in Richmond is that the Brown scandal accelerated his decision.
If Chris can’t prove that he actually served the community time, the judge in his case could decide Chris violated his probation. It couldn’t happen to a more swell guy.
