Chris Brown may miss his court hearing in Washington D.C. today (07.04.14).
The 'Fine China' hitmaker - who is accused of breaking Parker Adams' nose when he tried to insert himself in a photograph that the singer was taking with two female fans outside the W Hotel in Washington D.C. last October - is due to appear in front of a judge with his lawyer, Mark Geragos, in a bid to get all charges against him dropped but has still not arrived in the city.
According to website TMZ, he was taken from Los Angeles County jail cell on Thursday (03.04.14) by US Marshals to travel across the country and, after making multiple stops en route to pick up other prisoners, it is ''unclear'' whether the singer will make it to the hearing.
The lawyer will be in a the courtroom trying to get his client's case dismissed on grounds that prosecutors misused the grand jury system.
Prosecutors filed new court documents on Friday (04.04.14) in which they explained they are taking the case before a grand jury, as they believe they have the evidence to support a felony prosecution.
According to previous reports, they stated that the alleged victim's injuries were serious enough to require hospitalisation, which could be enough to get the charges upgraded and see the Grammy Award-winner face more significant time in jail.
If Mr. Geragos fails to have the charges dropped, Chris, who was jailed last month after violating his probation stemming from his assault on Rihanna in 2009, will be forced to remain in jail until the trial begins on April 17.
