April Trial For Singer Chris Brown

(Washington, DC) -- Singer Chris Brown will face an April trial in Washington, D.C. A Thursday court hearing set an April 17th trial date for Brown on his assault charge, stemming from an incident in October. The R&B star allegedly punched a man in the face outside the "W" Hotel in downtown D.C. Brown was already on probation when the incident occurred. He was not present at Thursday's hearing.
