A judge reinstated the singer’s probation and gave him the 1,000 additional hours of community service, while at the same time prosecutors agreed on Friday to withdraw their request to have Brown’s probation rescinded.
The request had come after Brown was allegedly involved in a hit and run incident. Earlier the hit and run charge had been dismissed.
The news on Friday in court was good at a time when Brown is having a number of difficulties. Brown did not speak at the hearing on Friday except agreeing to the new deal that had been worked out inside judge’s chambers while he was waiting inside the courtroom.
His community service work will consist of graffiti removal and working picking up garbage on the highway.
Brown has dealt with a number of legal problems over the past four years. They started in 2009 when he was charged with assaulting Rihanna his then girlfriend and received probation.
Since that time, he has had other run-ins with law enforcement for traffic accidents and an assault.
Brown has had to deal with medical issues as well. He had a seizure while in a recording studio last week but refused to be taken to a nearby hospital by rescue personnel.
According to his rep’s statement, Brown suffered a seizure known as “non-epileptic” due to being overly fatigued and being under extreme emotional stress. Both of those conditions were due to the onslaught of legal matters he has faced.
