Chris Brown‘s criminal defense attorney, Mark Geragos, has fired back at the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office claims that the R&B singer might have lied about the hours of community service he completed, as “scurrilous,” and will ask the judge to impose sanctions against prosecutors, RadarOnline.com is reporting.

“Apparently the District Attorney’s office has completely lost their minds,” Geragos told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday. “They are making scurrilous, libelous and defamatory statements and apparently have lost their ability to read their own reports.”

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, District Attorney Jackie Lacey said in a statement that “Chris Brown failed to provide ‘credible or verifiable evidence’” that he completed his court ordered community labor. She has asked the court to order Brown to fulfill his obligation in Los Angeles County.

Suspicion arose about Brown’s community service hours because of discrepancies in the reports and lack of documentation.

According to the legal docs, Judge Patricia Schnegg ordered Brown to perform 180 days of community service, and allowed him to do it in Virginia, where he has a residence.

“After a thorough review of all documents and evidence submitted to the Court it appears that there are significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst, fraudulent reporting and possible misdemeanors violations,” the documents state.

“In fact, the evidence shows that although Virginia Probation accepted supervision of Brown, no one from that Department ever approved, scheduled, supervised, monitored, or verified any of the community labor reported to this Court.”

The investigation also revealed that while records showed Brown was said to be picking up trash in Virginia, he was actually on a private jet to Cancun.
