With Chris’ Washington D.C. misdemeanor assault trial just days away, his mugshot from his Oct. 27 arrest has been released, showing a tragic shadow of the R&B singer fans used to know.
After being withheld for months, Chris Brown‘s mugshot from his Oct. 27 assault arrest was released on April 17. The jail photograph, which has come out four days before Chris’ trial in Washington D.C. begins, shows the R&B singer at one of his lowest points to date.
Chris Brown’s Assault Mugshot Released
Chris still has that peroxide dye-job, and his neck tattoo, which was suspected to be of his ex Rihanna, that has since been removed. But most grabbing is the sad, defeated look in the singer’s eyes.
The mugshot was taken on Oct. 27 after Chris and his bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, were arrested for allegedly assaulting a man outside of a D.C. hotel. Chris’ camp told HollywoodLife.com exclusively at the time that the altercation was self-defense, and that the fight allegedly broke out when multiple men tried to bum-rush Chris’ tour bus. However, the victim, Isaac Adams Parker, claimed that Chris threw the punch and broke his nose after he tried to get in a photo that the singer was taking with a few female fans.
Chris Brown’s Trial Beginning
Bodyguard Christopher Hollosy’s trial begins today, April 17, in Washington at the Superior Court, which explains why Chris’ mugshot was released.
Chris will have his own separate day in court though when his trial begins on April 21. The outcome of the case has huge consequences for Chris because he was still on parole from his 2009 assault of Rihanna when he was arrested. If he is found guilty, he could be sent to prison for up to four years.
