Chris Brown rejected a plea deal in his misdemeanor assault case on Wednesday that would have ended the proceedings with no more jail time required.
The singer and prosecutors cannot agree about what happened the night of his arrest for assault in D.C., however, and he turned the plea deal down.
Brown, 25, was arrested in October and subsequently charged with misdemeanor assault. He's accused of hitting a man, Parker Adams, during a scuffle.
He spent one night in jail, several months in rehab and several more months in jail after getting kicked out of rehab in California for violating probation.
Chris was released in early June, vowing never to go back.
According to the AP, the R&B singer rejected a deal to plead guilty to a non-felony assault charge, as offered to him by prosecutor Kevin Chambers.
The Grammy winner would have received a sentence of time served - i.e. no return to the slammer - had talks been successful, which they weren't. Why?
