Chris Brown’s Bodyguard Convicted of Assault, Singer’s Trial Postponed
Chris Brown’s bodyguard was found guilty of misdemeanor assault during a hearing in Washington, D.C., on Monday (April 21).
The charge stems from an incident in D.C., last October, in which Christopher Hollosy, Brown’s bodyguard, punched Parker Adams because he claims the man was allegedly trying to sneak into the singer’s tour bus. Sentencing is set for June 25.
Meanwhile, Brown’s assault trial has been delayed until Wednesday (April 23), reports the Associated Press. Brown’s attorneys want to review the bodyguard’s testimony because they need him to testify on the singer’s behalf, but Hollosy plans to appeal.
Both men were arrested in the same case after Adams said Brown and Hollosy assaulted him outside of a D.C. hotel.
If Brown is found guilty of misdemeanor assault, he could face up to four years in prison, which will violate his probation in another assault case in which he infamously pummeled Rihanna in 2009.
At his April 18 hearing, the ‘Loyal’ singer was supported by family and friends, including his mother, Joyce Hawkins, his girlfriend Karrueche Tran and rapper Bow Wow.
