Los Angeles: Chris Brown might have faked his community service hours in Rihanna`s assault case in 2009, according to Los Angeles County District Attorney.

The singer, who has resumed his romance with Rihanna after the infamous incident, has not given any "credible, competent or verifiable" evidence that he has completed any of his court-ordered community labor, the Los Angeles Times reported, quoting District Attorney Jackie Lacey.

In a 19-page motion filed by Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray, the judge was asked to decline to accept Brown`s community service due to "at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting." They are asking that a judge order Brown to fulfill his obligation in Los Angeles County.

Brown pleaded no contest to a felony battery charge in the case. If he does not fulfill the obligation, he could be sent to jail.

He was sentenced to a year-long domestic violence class, five years probation and ordered to serve more than 180 days of labor-oriented community service.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg allowed Brown to perform his community service in Virginia, where he maintains a residence.
His attorney, Mark Geragos, said at the time that Brown had finished all 1,400 hours.

Geragos issued a statement accusing LA County prosecutors of "scurrilous" statements against his client and says he has encouraged the Richmond Police Department to "take legal action against the Los Angeles County district attorney."

"Apparently the district attorney`s office has completely lost their minds.
They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports," Geragos said in a statement to Hollywood Reporter.

Brown was recently in news for allegedly assaulting Frank Ocean following an altercation over a parking lot.
