Chris Brown - Chris Brown's Bodyguard Convicted Of Assault

Chris Brown's bodyguard has been convicted of misdemeanour assault relating to a fight outside a Washington, D.C. hotel in October (13).

District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Patricia Wynn delivered the verdict against Christopher Hollosy on Monday morning (21Apr14), following the conclusion of a two-day trial, which ended on Friday (18Apr14).

He and Brown are both accused of punching 20-year-old Parker Adams in the face after he reportedly approached the singer with two female friends and asked to be part of a photograph.

Brown is alleged to have thrown the first punch, while Adams claimed Hollosy broke his nose.

The bodyguard insisted he lashed out at the alleged victim after Adams attempted to gain access to his client's tour bus, but Judge Wynn declared Hollosy's actions were "not justified" as neither he nor Brown were under attack.

She also suggested the singer had broken the law, ruling, "Mr. Brown did not have a right of self-defence."

Hollosy will be sentenced on 25 June (14), while Brown's trial for his misdemeanour assault charge relating to the same incident began immediately after the judge delivered the guilty verdict.

However, the case has been delayed until Wednesday (23Apr14) after his attorneys successfully requested a continuance.

Brown, who has denied the allegations, faces up to six months in jail and a $1,000 (£625) fine if convicted. He could land a further four years behind bars if the ruling is deemed a violation of his probation following his 2009 conviction for assaulting his then-girlfriend, Rihanna.

The singer has been behind bars since he was dismissed from a rehab facility in California, where he was receiving court-ordered anger-management treatment, last month (Mar14).
