News: Chris Brown Could Catch Monstrous Break In Assault Case
Sunday, Nov 3, 2013 10:30AM
R&B singer Chris Brown's nightmare of doing hard time for his assault last weekend in Washington, DC could be a thing of the past according to new reports.
According to the latest reportings, there is no visual proof of Chris Breezy taking a swing on the victim.
Chris Brown got into a fight last Sunday literally a stone's throw from the White House -- one of the most heavily guarded areas of the country -- yet TMZ has learned not a single camera recorded the altercation, and in this case it could be game-changing. As you know Chris has been charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly punching a guy in the face outside the W Hotel in D.C. Sources connected with the hotel tell TMZ there were two cameras on an overhang but neither was trained on the fight. So why is this good for Chris? As TMZ first reported, a secret service agent patrolling the area at the time of the fight heard the alleged victim tell a DC cop that Chris did NOT punch him. The D.C. cop has denied the victim ever told him that, but the Secret Service agent could blow up his credibility. (TMZ)
Coincidentally, the 24-year-old crooner's camp revealed his unexpected decision to seek professional help on Tuesday (October 29).
The singer's arrest Sunday on an assault charge put him on a path toward a possible prison sentence, but he will be in a rehabilitation facility as his next court date approaches. "Chris Brown has elected to enter a rehab facility," said a statement Tuesday night from his representative. "His goal is to gain focus and insight into his past and recent behavior, enabling him to continue the pursuit of his life and his career from a healthier vantage point." There has been no indication that Brown, 24, has a substance abuse problem. The behavior that has landed him in legal trouble over the past several years has been anger management. (CNN)
Chris Breezy left jail last Monday (October 28) and also had his charge reduced to a misdemeanor.
The charges against singer Chris Brown and his bodyguard stemming from a weekend fight were reduced to simple assault misdemeanors Monday. The two men, who had spent the previous 36 hours in a Washington jail, entered a packed courtroom in leg irons and handcuffs, but at the end they were unshackled and released without bail Monday afternoon. Brown, 24, was ordered to report to his California probation officer within 48 hours and to stay at least 100 yards away from the man he is accused of assaulting early Sunday. Both men must return to court on November 24. (CNN)
Prior to appearing in court, R&B singer Trey Songz displayed his support for Brown in Washington, DC.
