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.

*A man who says Chris Brown punched him during an altercation outside a Washington DC hotel has filed a civil lawsuit against the singer and his bodyguard.

Parker Isaac Adams said both men struck him in October outside the W Hotel over a picture Brown was taking with two other people. When Brown was arrested, the Grammy winner was on probation in California for a 2009 attack on singer Rihanna, his then-girlfriend.

Adams told the Associated Press he’s suing to recover his medical bills. The lawsuit was filed Tuesday.

Prosecutors and lawyers for singer Brown were also expected Thursday to choose a start date for his trial on a misdemeanor assault charge stemming from the incident.
