LOS ANGELES – A judge wants to know whether Chris Brown is being a good neighbor.

Superior Court Judge Patricia Schnegg ordered prosecutors Thursday to get more details about complaints about the R&B singer before his Oct. 12 court hearing. Brown is on probation for a 2009 attack on then-girlfriend Rihanna.

The judge said she had received several calls from Brown’s neighbors. She did not seem overly concerned about the complaints but wanted more information about them and where Brown would complete his community service.

The singer had served 581 hours of community service in Virginia as of January but needs to complete six months’ worth of labor. He recently moved to West Hollywood, Calif., and his attorney Mark Geragos said Brown may ask to complete his service there.

Geragos downplayed the neighborhood dispute, saying Brown was not at fault for some of the complaints. Geragos said West Hollywood city officials have dismissed more than $15,000 in parking citations Brown racked up for parking in a handicapped space at his condominium complex because those were the spaces assigned to him.

Brown has received mostly glowing probation reports since he was sentenced for the Rihanna attack two years ago. A probation report filed Thursday noted that media reports have focused on outbursts by Brown, but states that none of the conduct has been reported to probation officials.

A source told The Associated Press in March that Brown destroyed a dressing room and broke a window with a chair after an appearance on “Good Morning America,” in which co-host Robin Roberts asked the singer about the attack on Rihanna. He was never charged, and the probation report did not specifically cite the incident.
