• Richmond, Va., Police Chief Bryan Norwood resigned Tuesday after his role in approving Chris Brown’s Virginia community service came under fire, reports Associated Press. Prosecutors in L.A allege that Brown never completed more than 800 hours of service in his native Virginia. Norwood personally supervised the case — taking over from the state’s probation department — and signed the reports stating Brown had fulfilled his obligation to the court. Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones declined to say whether the Brown scandal played a role in Norwood’s departure reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch: “We’re waiting for the results of that investigation,” he said.. Prosecutors say there were several days when the singer claimed he worked — but records show he was not even in Richmond at those times. Brown’s next court hearing is scheduled for April.
