Chris Brown Avoids Jail Time, Ordered to  Complete 1,000 More Community Service Hours

If hes really serious about quitting music, Chris Brown will have plenty of time to start on the 1,000 hours of community service he was just sentenced to complete.

The singer was in court Friday (August 16) in connection with a hit-and-run accident earlier this summer

The 24-year-old will most likely be cleaning up beaches or removing graffiti as part of the deal. In exchange, the Los Angeles District Attorney agreed to dismiss its request to rescind Brown”s probation, stemming from his 2009 assault incident with then-girlfriend Rihanna. (The hit-and-run charge was dismissed a day earlier.)

The ever-controversial Brown dressed up for the hearing, donning a sleek dark suit. Yet he often appeared frustrated with the negotiations during the hearing, telling his attorney, “I understand. I understand. I am going to say whatever I want to. It”s how I feel. I don”t care.”

Brown is due back in court on November 20th for a progress hearing on the new community service agreement.
