After Chris Brown pleaded guilty to beating then-girlfriend Rihanna in 2009, a judge ordered the R&B singer to do six-months' worth of what was described as "community labor." The singer was allowed to perform the service in his home state of Virginia under the supervision of Richmond's police chief, who this week submitted documents to a Los Angeles judge indicating that Brown had finished his service.

Not so fast, say a judge and prosecutor, who have ordered more documentation be produced to prove that Brown worked the more than 1,400 hours he claims to have performed. A third of the hours were recorded at the Tappahannock day care center, where Brown spent time as a child and where his mother once served as director.
