Chris Brown To Face Probation Officer Over Washington Assault Arrest And Potential 4-Years In Jail

Chris Brown

Singer Chris Brown, who was released yesterday from an overnight stay in a Washington, DC jail, is scheduled to face his probation officer over the arrest. Brown and his bodyguard, Chris Hollosy, were arrested after a man, Isaac Adams Parker, followed them, then tried to board the singer's tour bus without permission and was punched in the face. 

Parker stated Brown punched him and broke his nose, but the original police report listed his bodyguard Hollosy, as the one who threw the punch whilst protecting his client. Parker should have been detained for trespassing, as it is illegal to enter someone's home, car or tour bus without their consent. The law must be applied evenly, regardless of who is involved in the proceedings. 

Brown's probation officer could opt not to violate his probation, as the Washington assault case was downgraded from a felony to a misdemeanor. However, 2-months ago, Brown ranted against the district attorney on Twitter, which I advised against on Twitter back in August, as not being a good idea. The district attorney may now jump at the chance to revoke his probation (which is what I was alluding to on Twitter two months ago). Brown's lawyer, Mark Geragos, has been successful thus far in addressing legal matters concerning the singer and will certainly go to work on this matter as well.
