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.
