Chris Brown - Chief of Police resigns over Chris Brown

The Chief of Police, who signed off on Chris Brown's court-ordered community service, has resigned.

Bryan T. Norwood has stepped down as head of law enforcement in Richmond, Virgina just a week after the Los Angeles Country District Attorney (D.A.) filed legal documents accusing the 23-year-old singer - who is still probation for beating his girlfriend Rihanna in 2009 - of faking his community service records when he was really on a private jet to Cancun in Mexico.

The Mayor of Richmond told gossip website TMZ.com that his office and Mr. Norwood reached a ''mutual agreement'' for his resignation, and he will be replaced by former Assistant Chief of Police Ray J. Tarasovic from tomorrow (13.02.13).

Bryan was intimately involved in certifying the 'Turn Up The Music' singer's community service hours and instrumental in making sure he was in charge of the star's probation records.

The L.A. County D.A. claimed last week that the records are bogus and that Chris had a prior relationship with Mr. Norwood, who wrote a letter to the judge on September 14, claiming Chris successfully completed 202 days of community service, 22 more than he was required.

Mr. Norwood also provided documents showing Chris worked at the Tappahannock Children's Centre doing odd jobs such as painting, washing windows, waxing floors, cutting grass and picking up trash.

The D.A. claimed that following its investigation, it found no ''credible, competent or verifiable evidence'' that Chris performed 180 days of service and called his documentation ''at best sloppy ... and at worst fraudulent reporting.''

Chris' lawyer has slammed the allegations as ''scurrilous, libellous and defamatory'' but the judge has asked Chris to verify his hours.

If he is unable to do so, his probation could be revoked.
