    Brown did not speak to the media but he waved to fans who saw him working.

    The 20-year-old was sentenced in California last month to five years' probation, six months of community labor and a year of domestic violence counseling for the February attack.

    He is performing the labor and undergoing counseling in Richmond, near his home in Montpelier.

    A police spokeswoman would not discuss Brown's work.
