Chris Brown is looking like a brand new person these days, thanks to his rehab stay. The R&B singer headed to court in D.C. yesterday (Jan 8) months after his assault of a photobomber in front of the W hotel after a night of clubbing at Park on 14th during Howard Homecoming.
Karrueche Tran, looking wintery in her white outfit arrived to support her boyfriend during the hearing. Once appearing before the Judge both Chris and his body guard Chris Hollosy rejected the plea deal that would only charge both assailants with one count of simple assault.
According to police reports Brown allegedly told the victim, “I’m not down with that gay [expletive]–I feel like boxing” before he and his bodyguard attacked the victim. The man was later sent to the hospital and treated for a broken nose, while Chris and Co. did a 2-day stint in jail. Since both pleaded not guilty, the case is setting up to go to trial. If convicted he can face up to 1,000 fine and 6-months in jail. Once both sides review all the evidence they will meet up again on February 20th and possibly negotiate another plea deal.
He’s currently sentenced to an extended rehab stay–which has benefitted him–community service, and graffiti removal stemming from his 2009 charges when he attacked then-girlfriend Rihanna.
