Chris Brown's assault trial delayed

BY JESSICA GRESKO Associated Press

WASHINGTON - Singer Chris Brown's trial on an assault charge in Washington, which had been set for Monday, has been postponed until Wednesday.

A judge delayed it while attorneys work out issues over testimony from Brown's bodyguard, who was convicted of assault in a separate trial.

Both Brown and bodyguard Christopher Hollosy were arrested in October after a man accused them of punching him outside a Washington hotel. Hollosy told police that he punched the man after he tried to get on Brown's tour bus. But the man says Brown and later Hollosy punched him after he tried to get in a photo Brown was taking with two women. Judge Patricia Wynn set Hollosy's sentencing for June 25.

Brown's attorneys now want Hollosy to testify at the singer's trial. Hollosy would be expected to say that he, not Brown, punched 20-year-old Parker Adams outside the W Hotel. But Hollosy's lawyer Bernard Grimm told a judge he plans to appeal his client's conviction.

Unless prosecutors grant Hollosy immunity, testifying in Brown's case could affect his appeal.
