Chris Brown Asks Judge to Dismiss D.C. Assault Charges

The lawyers of Chris Brown are asking a judge to drop the misdemeanor charges that the singer is facing from his altercation with a man outside of a hotel in Washington, D.C. last year, TMZ reports.

On Wednesday (March 26), Brown’s legal team filed a motion that claimed prosecutors mistreated the process of the grand jury when they were preparing for the trial. They are still waiting for a reply.

Last October, Brown was arrested and charged with a felony, which was soon reduced to a misdemeanor, for punching a man who wanted a photo with him. In February, the alleged victim asked for $3 million in damages against both Brown and his bodyguard.

The troubled crooner is currently serving time in jail until April 17, the date of his D.C. trial, after being kicked out of rehab for the second time for “violating internal rules.”
