Chris Brown has rejected a plea deal in his Washington, D.C., misdemeanor assault case, according to a Jan. 8 Reuters report. The Grammy-winning singer’s case stems from an October 2013 altercation with a Maryland man outside a Washington hotel.

Brown and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy allegedly broke the nose of a 20-year-old man who attempted to take a photo with the star last October. Brown’s lawyer, Danny Onorato told the press that his client rejected the plea deal because “Chris Brown’s not guilty.”

According to CBS news, Brown’s legal team expects a trial date to be set at the next hearing, scheduled for Feb. 20. His probation stemming from his 2009 assault on then-girl Rihanna was revoked when he was charged with the current assault incident.

Prosecutors in the present case offered the singer a simple assault plea deal, Reuters reports. Though the facts in the case are disputed, prosecutor Nicholas Cannon told the judge that the government has video surveillance, but provided no further details.
