The 'With You' singer, who is accused of punching a man outside a hotel in Washington, D.C. last October, pleads guilty to assault and apologizes in court.
Chris Brown has pleaded guilty in his Washington, D.C. assault case. The "With You" singer appeared in court on Tuesday, September 2 wearing a gray suit, white shirt and glasses. The judge sentenced him to time already served.
Brown's lawyer Danny Onorato told the court that his client had received punishment for the assault. "To say that he's been punished severely in this matter is an understatement," he said, as quoted by NY Daily News. He additionally said that Brown wanted to resolve the case because he wanted to concentrate on tour. In the court, Brown apologized for his action. "I would like to say to the court that I'm sorry," he stated.
Back in October, Brown hit a man named Parker Adams outside the W hotel when he tried to join the singer and two female fans while they were taking photos. The Grammy-winning singer then was charged with misdemeanor assault and spent two days in custody.
Brown's bodyguard Christopher Hollosy also hit Adams. He was convicted of misdemeanor assault in April, but he has not been sentenced.
Brown, who was in probation in relation to Rihanna assault case, served 131 days in prison for probation violation. He was released in June.
