In what could be a bad omen for Chris Brown, his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, has been found guilty in his Washington D.C. assault case, according to NBC New York.
Brown and Hollosy are both accused of punching Parker Adams outside of the W hotel last October. The victim suffered a broken nose. He claims that he simply wanted a picture with the singer. Brown says the man tried to board his tour bus without permission, forcing his bodyguard to take care of the problem.
Brown denies punching the fan. Both Hollosy and Brown were charged with misdemeanor assault in the case.
The judge in Hollosy's case ruled Monday that Hollosy "was not justified" in hitting the 20-year old victim. He will be sentenced on June 25.
Brown has much more at stake in his trial, which is set to begin today. In addition to having to serve six months in a D.C. jail if found guilty, he could also face significant prison time in Los Angeles for violating his probation stemming from his 2009 assault of Rihanna.
Parker Adams' lawyers have also filed a civil suit against the singer seeking $3 million for pain, suffering and doctor's bills.
