Chris Brown‘s bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, is guilty of assaulting a Maryland man, a D.C. judge ruled today.
Judge Patricia Wynn ruled that Hollosy was not justified in punching Parker Adams, 20, and breaking his nose. Wynn delayed giving her decision on Hollosy’s case until today so Hollosy could testify in Brown’s trial.
Judge Wynn will preside over Brown’s hearing on the same assault charges today in D.C. Superior Court.
The singer’s trial was set to start immediately after Wynn announced her verdict in last week’s trial of Brown’s bodyguard Hollosy.
Hollosy’s case was tried first so that he could freely testify in his boss’ defense about the sidewalk fight that landed them both in jail in October. He’s expected to say that he landed the punch that broke Adams’ nose and that he did it because it was his job to protect Brown.
Hollosy’s lawyer, Bernard Grimm, argued in the bodyguard’s trial that Adams, 20, was “simply trying to get rich” by accusing Brown and Hollosy of assaulting him.
Howard University student Jalen Garrison testified in the Hollosy trial that she and a friend were posing for photos on the sidewalk with Brown when Adams, who is her boyfriend, tried to snap his own photo with Brown.
Brown got upset, telling Adams, “I don’t like that gay s***,” Garrison testified. Brown lunged at Adams, hitting him the face, she testified.
A limousine driver testified that he witnessed Brown and Hollosy hit Adams. The bodyguard pulled Brown away before throwing his own punch, he said. Adams did not hit back, he said.
