Recently, L.A. County District Attorney Jackie Lacey deigned to question whether or not Chris Brown had completed his court-ordered community service hours.

Lacey speculated that the singer hadn't really done what he was supposed to do -- 180 days -- in Virginia. And now, as if to verify Lacey's speculation, the police chief who signed off on Brown's hours has resigned.

According to TMZ, Bryan Norwood was responsible for confirming the R&B star's track record of hours. In addition to signing off on them, he allegedly also wrote a letter to the court in L.A. vouching for Brown.

Norwood was reportedly planning to resign anyway, but the Brown saga may have prompted him to do so sooner rather than later.

Brown was sentenced to 180 days of community service back in 2009, following the infamous incident in which he beat Rihanna while the two were inside his car. If he indeed did not complete his hours, Lacey is requesting that they be done here in Los Angeles.

An employee at the hospital that Brown was supposed to be working refused to say one way or the other whether the singer had actually done his time.

And in the meantime, it looks as though Brown and Rihanna have officially reunited.
