— Among other things, the document filed by the DA references an incident in which Brinkley took it upon herself to personally "check up" on Mill by making a "surprise visit" to a homeless shelter in 2017 where he was performing court-ordered community service.
— Brinkley "personally assumed the role of investigator," the document states, but "no evidence suggests" that the judge regularly made this type of unannounced personal visit to monitor her other probationers.
— While at the shelter, the filing states that Brinkley attempted to blend in saw Mill "bagging clothes" rather than serving food, and considered this a violation but did not notify his team.
— When the rapper attempted to explain himself at a hearing, the judge countered "with her own observations," according to the DA’s filing, which alleges that Brinkley “inappropriately” played "the role of both decision maker and fact witness."
