According to the Associated Press, the singer was close to reaching an agreement that would keep him out of jail, by pleading guilty to simple assault. But his attorneys did not agree on the statement of facts about what happened on the night of October 27 outside of D.C.’s W hotel.
Brown rejected another plea deal in the same case in January, with his attorney, Mark Geragos, once again maintaining that the singer did nothing wrong.
Alleged victim Parker Adams claimed that Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, assaulted him after he tried to take a picture with the singer and two of his fans.
But Geragos told reporters that the statement of facts was inaccurate, and that “they wanted him to read from a script that wasn’t true.”
Brown will go to trial on September 8.
