*Chris Brown has rejected a plea deal in his Washington D.C. assault case, reports TMZ.
Brown was in court facing an assault charge in connection with his incident outside of a 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.
Law enforcement sources tell TMZ they had combed the area looking for surveillance video capturing the run-in. For a while, they said they had nothing. Now they seem to be singing a different tune, but haven’t turned the video over to Geragos, the website reported.
Geragos — who believes his client did nothing wrong — is eager to see the video before cutting any kind of deal.
