Chris Brown - Chris Brown rejects plea deal

Chris Brown has rejected a plea deal in his Washington D.C. assault case.

The 'Fine China' hitmaker, who was arrested, along with his bodyguard, in the city in October after allegedly breaking a man's nose and making a homophobic slur when the unidentified male and a friend attempted to insert themselves in a photographed the star was taking with two females, and his lawyer Mark Geragos appeared in court on Wednesday (08.01.14) in connection with the case, where the prosecutor revealed the singer had turned down their offer to reduce the charge to simple assault.

Law enforcement sources told gossip website TMZ.com that Chris and his lawyer are eager to see video footage that police officers claim to have obtained after combing the area looking for surveillance video capturing the incident before cutting a deal.

Chris is currently facing a charge of misdemeanour assault, which carries a more severe penalty.

The 24-year-old crooner voluntarily checked himself into a rehab facility in Malibu, California following the altercation last year but he was kicked out after throwing a rock through is mother Joyce's car window.

The R&B star - who was already on probation for a 2009 assault on then-girlfriend Rihanna at the time of his latest arrest - was then ordered to seek anger management at a different facility instead of being sentenced to jail when his probation was formally revoked as a result of the alleged assault.
