Singer Chris Brown expected in DC court

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Singer Chris Brown is expected to be in Washington for a hearing on the assault charge he faces.

Brown is scheduled Wednesday in D.C. Superior Court.

Brown was arrested and charged with misdemeanour assault in October, accused of hitting a man outside the W hotel. That man says Brown hit him after he tried to get in a photograph that the singer was taking with two women.

Prosecutors wanted Brown in Washington to face trial. At the time it was set to start, Brown was in a Los Angeles jail after being kicked out of a rehab facility. He was released earlier this month. Brown was still on probation for a 2009 attack on singer Rihanna, his then girlfriend.

No new trial date has been set in the D.C. case.
