He's taking his chances at trial
Chris Brown says he'll take his chances at trial. The troubled singer appeared in court Wednesday in Washington, D.C. where he rejected a plea deal for a misdemeanor assault charge he picked up back in October.
The charge led to a Los Angeles judge's recent decision to revoke Brown's probation for his assault case against ex-girlfriend Rihanna. According to the 'Washington Post," Brown's bodyguard also rejected the plea deal Wednesday. Another hearing is scheduled for February 20th.
It was a frenzied scene outside D.C. Superior Court where Brown's hearing was held Wednesday. Security officers were reportedly overwhelmed by fans who flooded the courthouse in hopes of catching a glimpse of the singer.
Brown and his bodyguard are accused of striking a man outside of a hotel on October 27th, although there are conflicting stories about how the altercation began. Reports suggest the dispute started over an attempt to take a photograph. But Brown's camp says the man tried to board his tour bus and that the singer's bodyguard was protecting him.
