Chris Brown says he'll take his chances at trial.  The troubled singer appeared in court Wednesday in Washington, D.C. where he rejected a plea deal for a misdemeanor assault charge he picked up back in October. 

The charge led to a Los Angeles judge's recent decision to revoke Brown's probation for his assault case against ex-girlfriend Rihanna.  According to the 'Washington Post," Brown's bodyguard also rejected the plea deal Wednesday. Another hearing is scheduled for February 20th. 

It was a frenzied scene outside D.C. Superior Court where Brown's hearing was held Wednesday.  Security officers were reportedly overwhelmed by fans who flooded the courthouse in hopes of catching a glimpse of the singer.  

Brown and his bodyguard are accused of striking a man outside of a hotel on October 27th, although there are conflicting stories about how the altercation began.  Reports suggest the dispute started over an attempt to take a photograph.  But Brown's camp says the man tried to board his tour bus and that the singer's bodyguard was protecting him.
