The headline-making celebrity is reportedly in a Hagerstown, Md. jail awaiting trial, WUSA-9 reports. (Another news outlet states he's being held at the "Northern Neck Regional Jail" in Virginia.) There have also been conflicting reports of how Brown was returned to DC with some reports saying he was flown while others say he was on a five-day bus trip from Los Angeles.
A trial for his body guard was expected to move forward in DC today (Thursday, April 17), after a judge on Monday refused a request by the singer to have his misdemeanor assault case dismissed. Brown's trial is scheduled for April 21.
The singer allegedly punched a man after he tried to have his photo taken with the singer outside of a DC hotel in October. Brown, 24, and his bodyguard are each facing a misdemeanor simple assault charge in connection with the incident, which occurred outside the W Hotel in downtown Washington.
The man who was punched, Parker Isaac Adams, 20, of Prince George's County, says he suffered a broken nose and other injuries to his face. Adams is suing Brown and a bodyguard for $1.5 million each.
Brown maintains that he is innocent and that his security guard was protecting him and his property.
Adams said in the lawsuit that when Brown objected to the picture, he said he was not down with that “gay (expletive)” and punched Adams in the face. Adams also said that rather than posing, Brown objected and punched him in the face after saying, “I feel like boxing.”
