Chris Brown ditched the fluorescent safety vest as he continued to perform his community labor in his home state of Virginia, a punishment for pleading guilty to assaulting pop singer Rihanna.
The offender tied his top around his hips, which allowed paparazzi to catch the star shirtless as he continued to work under the supervision of local police.
Brown has been Tweeting as he completes his more than 1,400 hours of community labor.
Among the things he has Tweeted about: Pictures of a new T-shirt line he is promoting. One of the shirts has the word “Violence” in a crossed out circle, with the words “Break The Cycle” written below it, while another shirt says “Stop Teen Violence.”
Brown turned 20 in May.
He also sent fans to a link of a picture of him from Wednesday, working to clean up what appeared to be overgrowth near some train tracks, and a link to a video of a song he completed with Ester Dean.
