Singer Chris Brown Says 'No' to Plea Deal That Would Have Kept Him Out of Jail
Singer Chris Brown turned down a plea deal in a DC court Wednesday that would have meant no jail time, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Brown's lawyer and prosecutors got hung up, the report said, on what Brown was acknowledging happened last year in DC. "They wanted him to read from a script that wasn't true," Brown's attorney, Mark Geragos said after the hearing, the AP reported.

"If they want a trial, that's what they'll get," Geragos said outside court where fans mobbed Brown, screaming and taking photographs of the singer, ABC News reported.


The singer allegedly punched a man after he tried to have his photo taken with the singer outside of a DC hotel. Brown, 24, and his bodyguard each faced a misdemeanor simple assault charge in connection with the incident, which occurred outside the W Hotel in downtown Washington. The bodyguard was convicted in April but has not yet been sentenced.

Brown's assault trial is now scheduled for Sept. 8.
