New date set for Brown assault case

R&B singer Chris Brown has won a delay in facing court on assault charges.

A Washington DC Superior Court judge postponed the hearing until January 8 after Brown’s lawyers successfully argued that he should not be forced to leave anger management rehabilitation in Los Angeles to travel to Washington for today’s hearing.

Brown in court in July

Brown was ordered into rehab last week following a Los Angeles court appearance.

Brown and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy will be required to appear at the next hearing. They were arrested last month on charges of punching a man outside a hotel who tried to jump into a picture with the singer.

Brown faces a misdemeanuor assault charge. His lawyers sought the delay because they said they haven’t had an opportunity to review evidence with him.
