WASHINGTON (WNEW) — The assault case involving singer Chris Brown and his bodyguard still isn’t over yet.
Both of them were found guilty of punching a fan outside the W Hotel last fall, but the attorney for Brown’s bodyguard wants a new trial for his client.
Sentencing for Chris Hollosy was scheduled for Friday, but his attorney argued several elements of the trial last April were flawed. The judge seemed most persuaded over questions about a police report that said a limo driver who testified about witnessing the scuffle didn’t actually see the punches being thrown.
The defense also questioned the limo driver’s motives, noting he had a suspended driver’s license and posted on Facebook about using his role as a witness to his advantage.
The judge moved sentencing back to Dec. 16th.
