Lawyers for Chris Brown have rejected a plea deal in a case involving an alleged altercation last October in Washington D.C.
During a 10-minute hearing in D.C. Superior Court on Wednesday, lawyers for Chris and his bodyguard — also accused in the case — rejected a deal that would have involved each being found guilty of simple assault, the Washington Post reports.
As previously reported, the singer and his bodyguard Chris Hollosy were arrested on October 28 and charged with misdemeanor assault after an incident outside a hotel in Washington involving the pair and a third man, who may have been seeking a photograph with Brown. Brown and Hollosy were accused of hitting the man.
Another hearing is scheduled in the case for February 20, the Post reports.
As a result of the D.C. incident, in November a judge in Los Angeles altered the terms of Chris’ probation in his 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna, ordering that the singer complete a 90-day stint in a residential treatment facility there.
