Chris Brown hit with 1,000 hours of community labor, then hits Connecticut pool party

Well, this sure beats picking up trash.

Chris Brown, who was recently slapped with a new sentence of 1,000 hours of community labor that can include cleaning beaches and highways, celebrated his punishment at Liquid Sundays at Foxwoods Resort Casino this past weekend.

Despite his ongoing legal troubles, the artist “seemed unfazed as he soaked up the sun, indulged in some much needed R&R and performed to a sold out crowd,” according to Foxwoods publicists.

Brown agreed last week to the sentence after a judge found that the “Run It” singer had violated his probation by submitting bogus community service reports (Brown had already been hit with 1,000 hours of community labor stemming from his beating of Rihanna in 2009.) In one instance, Brown swore he was picking up trash in his home state of Virginia when he was actually on a private jet to Cancun.
