Chris Brown assault trial could start Wednesday

WASHINGTON (AP) — Singer Chris Brown's trial on an assault charge is scheduled to begin in Washington.

Brown's trial had been set for Monday but was postponed while lawyers tried to work out whether his bodyguard will testify. It's unclear if the trial will start Wednesday, as Brown's lawyers seem to want, or if further legal maneuvering will delay it.

Both Brown and his bodyguard were arrested in October. They are accused of punching a man outside a Washington hotel. Brown's bodyguard, Christopher Hollosy, told police that he punched the man after he tried to get on Brown's tour bus. But the man told police both men punched him after he tried to get in a photo Brown was taking with two women.

Hollosy was convicted of assault Monday in a separate trial.
