Chris Brown Could Face Jail Time For Misdemeanor Assault In Connection To D.C. Fight With Fan
By Annie Reuter
Chris Brown could be facing time behind bars very soon after forgoing a plea deal that would have kept him out of jail.
Prosecutor Kevin Chambers said that Brown was offered a deal to plead guilty to simple assault and time served in the case but no one could agree what actually happened outside of the W Hotel that day.
According to CBS DC, the police gave details of the incident, which took place on October 2013, writing that Brown broke the defendant’s nose outside of the W Hotel when he tried to get a picture of the singer.
In the report, the alleged victim, Parker Isaac Adams, 20, said Brown told him, “I’m not down with that gay s–t,” and, “I feel like boxing.” Brown and his bodyguard went on to allegedly hit the man.
Brown was arrested outside of the W Hotel and charged with a misdemeanor assault charge against a fan. Brown rejected the original plea offer and maintained his innocence in the case.
At the time, Brown was still on probation for his 2009 assault case against Rihanna and was ordered to remain in anger management and drug rehabilitation program, which he was later kicked out of after bad behavior.
As of now, Brown’s trial in connection with the D.C. fight is scheduled for Sept. 8.
