Secret Service Agent Trying to Clear Chris Brown Of Assault Charge [Details]
Rucuss staffOctober 31, 2013
Assault charges against Chris Brown may be dropped after a Secret Service agent came forward with information that could change the case.
On Monday, Brown was charged with misdemeanor assault after allegedly punching a man in the nose outside a The W hotel in Washington, D.C. But a Secret Service agent said he heard the alleged victim tell a D.C. cop that Brown never hit him, TMZ reports.
A police officer later denied that he spoke with the witness in question. But the Secret Service agent contacted the D.C. police and told them he was present when the victim told the cop that Brown never hit him. The agent is adamant that he heard the victim’s admission to the cop.
If the Secret Service agent sticks to his story and testifies on behalf of Brown, it could hurt the credibility of the alleged victim. Prosecutors would be forced to drop the misdemeanor assault case.
Brown entered a Malibu rehab facility on Tuesday for anger management issues and is expected to be there for up to three months.
