Looks like Chris Brown didn't get off as easy as we previously thought

The troubled singer was ordered to complete 1,000 hours of community service and had his probation reinstated by a judge yesterday late afternoon.

According to Billboard, the "Look at Me Now" singer took the community service as part of a deal that was hammered out in the judge's chambers during his trial yesterday for a hit-and-run charge. 

The judge dismissed the charge after explaining that a "civil compromise" had been reached with the other driver. 

But he later reinstated Brown's probation and gave him until August 25, 2014 to complete a massive amount of community service.

The punishment was given after a district attorney said she found "significant discrepancies indicating at best sloppy documentation and at worst fraudulent reporting" in Brown's previous community service paperwork.

The judge also said that the new community service hours must be completed in LA rather than Virginia—his home state. He will be back in court on November 20th for a progress check.

So, don't be all too surprised if you spot Chris Brown scrubbing away at graffiti or picking up trash along the 405.
