WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Lawyers for Chris Brown say the singer has rejected a plea deal in a case in which he’s accused of hitting a man outside a Washington hotel.
Brown appeared Wednesday afternoon in a D.C. court. He and his bodyguard face a misdemeanor assault charge after an October altercation outside the W Hotel.
Speaking outside of court, Brown’s lawyer, Danny Onorato said they had decided not to accept the plea because “Chris Brown’s not guilty.”
His lawyers say they expect a trial date to be set at another hearing, scheduled for Feb. 20.
