‘Un­ruly’ Chris Brown’s neigh­bours fed up

CityPress - - News -

Chris Brown’s un­ruly be­hav­iour has landed him in hot wa­ter.

TMZ, a celebrity gos­sip news site, re­ported yes­ter­day that the Los An­ge­les Po­lice Depart­ment (LAPD) wanted a meet­ing with the singer after it re­ceived a litany of com­plaints from his neigh­bours.

A source told TMZ that the LAPD di­vi­sion that cov­ers his San Fer­nando Val­ley neigh­bour­hood is fed up with re­ceiv­ing com­plaints about Brown’s be­hav­iour.

The com­plaints in­clude dis­turb­ing the peace (noise), drugs, as­saults and rid­ing var­i­ous ve­hi­cles reck­lessly on pub­lic roads.

“We’ve been told the po­lice want to get Chris in line. The brass at the di­vi­sion will ask him to come to the sta­tion so they can lay out the prob­lems and see if he’ll see the light,” TMZ re­ported.

An­other source said: “Chris is a chronic prob­lem who takes up a tremen­dous amount of our re­sources.”

In Novem­ber last year, one of Brown’s neigh­bours, who was tired of watch­ing the star driv­ing reck­lessly on the road, recorded him travers­ing one of the streets in the hood. In the video the singer is seen show­ing off in grand fash­ion.

This was the sec­ond such video to sur­face. In May, a sim­i­lar video went vi­ral when an­other neigh­bour com­plained on so­cial me­dia about Brown’s an­tics.

This video showed Brown and a friend, each on an all-ter­rain ve­hi­cle (ATV), and an­other friend on a three-wheeler, driv­ing at a high speed in San Fer­nando Val­ley. They can be seen spin­ning the ATVs.

The video was later handed over to the LAPD, which for­warded it to the city at­tor­ney for a pos­si­ble crim­i­nal pros­e­cu­tion for dis­turb­ing the peace. Brown was never pros­e­cuted on the mat­ter.
