LOS ANGELES -- Los Angeles prosecutors are asking a judge to order Chris Brown to redo his community service because of significant discrepancies in records submitted to a court.

Deputy District Attorney Mary Murray writes in a motion filed Tuesday that the records submitted by Richmond, Va., police to prove the R&B singer performed six-months of community labor are "at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting."

Brown was allowed to perform his community labor sentence for the 2009 beating of Rihanna in his home state of Virginia. Richmond police submitted paperwork last year indicating Brown had completed his sentence, but the logs showed the singer performing double shifts in the city and at a day care center where his mother once worked.

Richmond Police spokesman Gene Lepley declined to comment, saying the matter is still before the court. And a phone message for Brown's attorney wasn't immediately returned.
