WASHINGTON (AP) — A judge has convicted singer Chris Brown’s bodyguard of an assault charge following a two-day trial that provided a preview of a similar case against Brown.
Judge Patricia Wynn on Monday convicted Brown’s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, of misdemeanor assault. Sentencing is set for June 25. Brown’s trial on the same charge comes before the judge next.
Both men were arrested in October after a Maryland man said Brown and Hollosy punched him outside a Washington hotel.
Hollosy told police he punched the man after he tried to get on Brown’s tour bus. The man told police a different story. He said Brown and later Hollosy punched him after he tried to get in a photo Brown was taking with two women.
Brown told police he didn’t hit the man.
