Perhaps he's not such a bad guy after all. Chris Brown fulfilled nearly one-third of his community service requirements at his childhood daycare center.

The singer, 23, was required to do the court-ordered service following his 2009 assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna after the Grammy awards. He was placed on five years' probation and ordered to complete six months of community service.

The singer didn't interact with any children for his community service. He spent most of his time doing general cleaning, painting walls, and waxing floors after-hours.

Facility administrator Ida Minter told the Associated Press, "I think Chris always goes beyond because he always wants to give back to where he grew up. And this was a part of his home because his mom worked here full-time. If you've ever been involved in stripping and waxing (floors), it's hard. It's a lot of work."

Brown, who finished the remainder of his hours doing odd jobs throughout the town, even hand-painted a colorful clown mural on the building's wall. Brown completed 508 hours at the Tappahannock Children's Center, where the singer was looked after as a young boy, on and off, for 12 years.

A judge recently ordered a more thorough review of his work log to determine whether he had violated the terms of his probation by failing to properly fulfil the punishment. Brown will return to court on November 1 for an updated progress report hearing.
