Chris Brown's Restraining Order Modified + Crazed Fan Attempts To Rob Lil' Wayne
Would you commit a crime to meet your idol? A man in Glendale, CA did and he landed himself in jail over his antics to meet Lil' Wayne. Get the deets inside, plus Chris Brown's restraining order has been modified. Find out how after the cut...
"Yeah 3x" singer Chris Brown appeared in court with his attorney Mark Geragos for a probation progress report yesterday, and he got great news. His restraining order, following the brutal beating of his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, has been replaced by a "level one order."
Chris is now allowed to be around Rihanna, provided he doesn't "...annoy, molest, or conduct surveillance of the person on the order."
Although Rihanna wasn't in court, her lawyer, Donald Etra, said "I have spoken with my client, and she does not object to it being modified to a level one order."
Chris' road to redemption has been long, but Judge Patricia Schnegg complimented him on his progress.
During a prior progress report hearing, she told Chris,
"Of all probationers I've ever had, and I've had thousands of probationers, no one has ever done a better or more consistent job than you have."
Chris pleaded guilty to assault in 2009 and was sentenced to five years probation and more than 1400 hours of "labor-oriented service."
In today's foolywang news...
Last Friday, Lil' Wayne found out that some fans will do almost anything to meet him. 20-year-old Marco Negrete was arrested and held on $20,000 bail after his scheme to meet Lil' Wayne went bust.
Law officials from Glendora, CA say Marco snuck onto the set of Lil' Wayne's latest video, posing as a background dancer. Eventually, people on the set discovered that a number of valuable items including a portable computer, a Louis Vuitton purse, a wallet and tickets to last weekend’s NBA All-Star game were missing.
Cops used the laptop's GPS system to track down the culprit. And when he was discovered, Marco told police he took the items hoping he could return them to Weezy in person. SMH.
Unfortunately for Marco, the items he stole didn't belong to Lil' Wayne. Womp Womp.
Marco pleaded not guilty to the charges.
