Chris Brown

I'm Not Copping a Deal in My Assault Case

1/8/2014 11:46 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Chris Brown just REJECTED a plea deal in his Washington D.C. assault case.

Brown was in court facing an assault charge in connection with his run-in with a guy outside his D.C. hotel in October.

The prosecutor revealed in court they had offered Brown a deal -- reducing the charge to simple assault (he currently faces misdemeanor assault which carries a more severe penalty), but Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos -- who was also in court --- rejected it ... and we think we know why.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... they had combed the area looking for surveillance video capturing the run-in.  For a long, long time they said they had nothing.  Now they seem to be singing a different tune, but haven't turned the video over to Geragos. 

Geragos -- who believes his client did nothing wrong -- is eager to see the video before cutting any kind of deal.

Stay tuned.

Chris looks much better. He's not guilty. Lawyer made the right call. Where's your Mom, son? Uglee midget looks like a homeless who hasn't seen soap & water. Ditch the donkey, more bad press than you can handle, Chris

Chris does look a lot better, hopefully he has learned strategies which will help him make better decisions. He is a talented guy, he can turn this around.

Have you ever heard of a creepy lawyer say his client did something wrong? Of course this sleazy media hound lawyer is going to defend this washed up client. His client should have behind bars years ago.

Chris does look a lot better. Hopefully he has learned strategies in rehab which will help him make better decisions. He is a talented guy, he can turn this around. When I read all these mean comments on this page I just think, what do we know about their private lives?

She's baaaack    

Bull shlt that Geragos doesn't think Brown did anything wrong. Geragos is a freaking defense attorney. He knows Brown is guilty as sin and it's his job to spin it and manipulate the justice system so Brown walks.

I do not think it is evidence that will clear Chris Brown, the Prosecutors just offered the deal to save Taxpayers money from a trial. It is done all the time. If it was something to clear Brown the Prosecutors would not move forward with the case they would just have it dismissed.

Did he get released from rehab? Is he on a pass with a chaperon ? TMZ slipping, not all the news or a heads up this woman beater was roaming again.
Big deal last month when he was day passed for a toy drive in town, here he is across the country.
