Chris Brown D.C. assault case

Chris Brown appeared in D.C. courtroom on Tuesday morning (Sept. 2), pleading guilty in his 2013 assault case.

According to reports, the singer has accepted a plea deal, receiving time served.

Brown had been charged with misdemeanor assault for punching Parker Adams in the face outside his tour bus last October. The incident occurred while he was on probation for infamous attack of Rihanna.

While in court Tuesday, he issued an apology. "I would like to say to the court that I'm sorry," he said.

Brown's attorney, Danny Onorato, added that his client had already been punished extensively for the assault, serving 108 days in an L.A. jail. "To say that he's been punished severely in this matter is an understatement," Onorato said.

Brown's bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, was also convicted of misdemeanor assault in April in connection with the incident. He has not yet been sentenced.
