As expected, Chris Brown pleaded not guilty to felony charges of assault and making criminal threats today in an obvious attempt to secure a plea bargain. Because, really, when you beat a woman unconscious, you really want to make the process as easy for yourself as possible. TMZ reports:
With ex girlfriend Rihanna nowhere in sight, Brown showed up at L.A. County criminal courthouse to face the music for allegedly beating the crap out of her back in February. Sources inside the courtroom say Chris’ mom spent the entire preliminary hearing either in tears or praying for her 19-year-old son. We’re told a handful of Chris’ friends and four bodyguards were also there to show support. Brown is due back in court on April 29.
Just to remind everyone, here’s the entire police statement and this is the first police photo taken of Rihanna immediately after the assault. So, the only question now is why would he plead guilty? It’s obvious had nothing to do with this. Rihanna got attacked by a bear that looked like Chris Brown, I bet.
