Chris Brown appeared today inside a D.C. courtroom and – good news! – he didn’t punch anyone inside.
But in even more surprising news, the singer did reject a plea bargain in conjunction with assault charges he faces after an October confrontation.
According to TMZ sources, the prosecutor told a judge that he had offered Brown a deal that would have reduced the charge to simple assault… but the artist’s attorney turned it down.
It’s unknown why at this time, but it is believed that Brown’s lawyer has not yet been given surveillance footage from the night in question.
It allegedly depicts Brown getting into it with a man outside the W hotel around 4:30 a.m. on October 27.
The incident started when Brown posed for a picture with a female and then two individuals rushed in to be included in the frame.
From there, details remain sketchy, but Brown supposedly dropped a gay slur – and then dropped one of the men to the ground with a broken nose.
Geragos is apparently waiting to see the video footage before agreeing to any deal.
And we’re hoping to never see Brown and Karrueche Tran pose like this again.
