Chris Brown pleads not guilty to battery charges after being accused of attack on a photographer
R&B singer, Chris Brown has pleaded not guilty to felony battery charges after he was accused of punching a photographer during a 2017 appearance at a Tampa, Florida club.
The photographer was said to have suffered lacerations to his face during the clash and the whole incident was captured on camera.
Recall the singer was arrested last week for the assault just after his concert at the Coral Sky Ampitheatre in West Palm Beach. But was later released on a $2,000 bail.
According to the Blast, the 29-year-old singer pleaded not guilty to a felony battery charge in Florida on Monday. The plea was entered on behalf of Brown by his attorney.
Documents obtained by the outlet indicated that Brown’s attorney also asked the court to set a date for a “disposition/pre-trial conference.”
Chris Brown has a lengthy legal history, including a domestic violence arrest in 2009 after beating up then-girlfriend Rihanna, a 2013 hit-and-run and a 2016 arrest for assault with a deadly weapon.
