Chris Brown’s Plea Deal Falls Through & 2014 BET Awards – Tha Wire
Plea negotiations between Chris Brown's lawyers and prosecutors in his Washington, D.C., assault case fell through Wednesday (June 25). The Associated Press reports, the 25-year old singer appeared in court with his attorney Mark Geragos and couldn’t come to an agreement with prosecutor Kevin Chamber on the plea details of the October 2013 incident.
The offer on the table was, to plead guilty to simple assault (versus misdemeanor assault) and time served. But Breezy and his legal team weren’t havin no parts of that. Mark Geragos explained, "They wanted him to read from a script that wasn't true."
The alleged victim, Parker Adams, claims Chris Brown and his bodyguard, Chris Hollosy, assaulted him outside a D.C. hotel. Though he was assaulted, Breezy’s bodyguard testified at his assault trial, that he was the only one that laid hands on Adams.
According to Hollosy, two fans approached Chris as he was leaving the hotel and asked if they could take a picture, at which time Breezy said yes, "One picture, make it quick." Adams testified himself that when he seen the singer posing for the pic, he thought he'd "hop in the picture" too.
Apparently, the two fans weren't happy with Adams' intrusion, so Breezy checked the guy. In Adams own words, he "squared up" to fight Chris, when the singer’s bodyguard jumped in and "slugged" him. Sounds like the guy was doing his job, just saying. By the way, Breezy’s bodyguard also stated that Adams tried to sneak onto Brown's tour bus.
