According to TMZ, the police chief who signed off on Chris Brown’s community service has resigned just days after it was revealed that there was an investigation being conducted as to where or not he’d completed it.
Richmond’s Chief of the Police Bryan Norwood reportedly vouched for Chris by writing a letter stating that he’d completed all of his community service, when in fact, he had not. Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones says a mutual agreement was reached between his office and Norwood, and that ultimately the former would be resigning.
Brown insists he’s completed his community service and the judge in the case is still trying to verify the hours completed.
Still, the resignation could have less to do with Brown than Norwood angling for a top job in another state.
The Richmond Times-Dispatch suggests that “the relationship between Norwood and Richmond Mayor Dwight C. Jones had become strained well before it became public last month that Norwood was seeking the [police] chief’s job in Raleigh, N.C.”
