Chris Brown (C) leaves court where his attorneys rejected a plea deal that would have found him and his bodyguard guilty of simple assault on January 8, 2014 in Washington, DC. Brown faces a misdemeanor assault charge for allegedly punching a man in the face in October 2013.

*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.
