Chris Brown Rejects Plea Deal In Washington, D.C. Assault Case; Singer Due Back In Court

UPDATE: Chris Brown is scheduled to be in court for what would be another attempt at reaching a plea deal in his Washington, D.C. assault case.

Chris Brown’s legal team rejected a plea deal on the assault case the singer is facing stemming from an October assault outside of a Washington, D.C. hotel, TMZ reports. 

The prosecution offered to reduce the charge to simple assault from misdemeanor assault. Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos, wants to see a surveillance video that may have captured the incident before agreeing to a plea bargain, TMZ.

The singer is facing a misdemeanor assault charge from an incident which began when Brown was reportedly approached at approximately 4:30 am by two women who wanted to take a picture with him in front of the W Hotel in Washington, D.C., according to law enforcement, as per TMZ. When two men attempted to get into the photo, Brown allegedly used a gay slur before allegedly throwing a punch at the alleged victim.

Brown was initially facing a felony assault charge, but it was reduced to a misdemeanor from a felony, according to TMZ.

The singer pled not guilty to the charge and is required to stay 100 yards away from the alleged victim in the case.

In witness statements obtained by TMZ, Brown denies punching the alleged victim. Brown says he was on the tour bus when the alleged assault took place and that his bodyguard took care of the situation. 

Video of Brown outside the court today is as follows:

    Oh please.. I understand that there can be snakes out to get you for your money and what not but chris Brown is just a damn fool. He had everything going for him then he blew it, essentially got forgiven then starting acting like a nut job and blaming it on the fact that he is young. I'm young too but im not randomly trying to knock people out for jumping in a picture. This young man is a waste of talent and needs to step his maturity up before he really gets put behind bars.

      Yeah, but you don't have millions of dollars, camera's following you, all world fame, and bitches screaming your name all the while throwing pannies at you. If hollywood has taught us nothing, it's that these factors are an ordeal for any human psyche to successfully manage. None of this is an excuse for beating Rihanna to a pulp; but lets compare apples to apples here.
