Chris Brown isn’t copping a plea deal over that assault case

Chris Brown

As some of you might remember, Chris Brown is currently in rehab for anger management after getting into a fight with a guy, and then going to a different rehab, only to get pissed off and throw a rock through his mom’s car window. So yeah, a series of great life decisions there. Anyway, Chris’ lawyer has reportedly refused a plea deal in regards to that assault charge from the original fight, which is fair because this is California. You think he’d actually be charged? HA! That’s cute. Via TMZ

The prosecutor revealed in court they had offered Brown a deal — reducing the charge to simple assault (he currently faces misdemeanor assault which carries a more severe penalty), but Brown’s lawyer, Mark Geragos — who was also in court — rejected it … and we think we know why. Law enforcement sources tell us … they had combed the area looking for surveillance video capturing the run-in. For a long, long time they said they had nothing. Now they seem to be singing a different tune, but haven’t turned the video over to Geragos. Geragos — who believes his client did nothing wrong — is eager to see the video before cutting any kind of deal.

Fair enough, that actually does seem like a pretty rational decision. Although … well, I’m not legal expert, but I think I have a much faster case for this: “Your honor, we’re in California and my client is famous.” BAM! Just like that, you’re out of the woods. You’re welcome.
