The Police Chief accused of signing off on false community service hours for Chris Brown has resigned.
TMZ reports that Bryan Norwood, Chief of the Richmond, Virginia Police Department, has removed himself from his post after the Los Angeles County District Attorney claimed in a report that Norwood was involved in certifying Brown’s community service hours in relation to the singer’s Rihanna assault case.
The report provides that the hours were never performed, that Norwood personally oversaw recording the hours, and that he vouched for Brown.
The Mayor of Richmond says his office reached a “mutual agreement” with the Chief regarding his resignation.
The judge in the Rihanna case now wants Brown to verify his hours.
Norwood will be replaced by former Assistant Chief of Police Ray J. Tarasovic, who will come out of retirement to fill the position.
