Chris Brown Arraignment Date Moved to April

Chris Brown appeared in a Los Angeles courtroom Thursday to face charges for the alleged assault against girlfriend Rihanna.

Brown, 19, appeared somber wearing a gray suit and did not enter a plea. His lawyer, Marc Geragos’ requested that the arraignment be postponed until April 6. The judge conceded but warned Brown that he was not to “annoy, harass, molest, threaten or use force or violence against anyone.” The judge also asked Geragos if Rihanna requested a no-contact order against Brown. “Miss Fenty does not request such an order,” he replied.

Although Rihanna, real name Robyn Fenty, was not in the courtroom her lawyer Donald Etra appeared on her behalf. Following the hearing Etra addressed the media ensuring reporters that Rihanna was doing well and would testify if required to do so. “She is making sure her rights are protected at every stage of the proceedings,” he said. Etra went on to say that Rihanna was in agreement with the “level-one protective order” against Brown and that his fate was in the hands of the district attorney.

Brown was officially charged with felony assault and making criminal threats before appearing in court Thursday. The arraignment took place just hours before a police documents chronicling the assault was formally released to the public. According to an 11-page search warrant request and affidavit, Brown and Rihanna got into a fight following a text message he received from an unidentified woman. The two began to argue resulting in Brown banging Rihanna’s head against the car window of his rented Lamborghini. Brown then attempted to push Rihanna out of the car but was unsuccessful because she was wearing her seat belt. The paperwork went on to say that Brown kicked punched and bit Rihanna as well as threatened her life. Rihanna fought back attempting to “gouge his eyes” but also reportedly lost consciousness during the scuffle.

Although the pop star has yet to publicly address the assault, her father Ronald Fenty has remained vocal. “Justice can never be served in this situation,” said Fenty in an interview. “He can’t feel the pain she felt.” Fenty also stated that neither he nor the pop star’s mother has had contact with their daughter. Fenty did however receive a text from his daughter stating that she missed him. “I don’t know what to say. I’ve been hearing so many stories. I don’t feel any pain anymore. I’ve gone numb. I’ve heard so much. But I can’t get on to her. Her mother can’t get on to her. Her brother told me she changed her email. Somebody has a stranglehold on her. I’m lost.” Despite their lack of communication Fenty still stands behind his daughter and said that supports her decisions.

While the story of their altercation unfolds in the public eye, both Rihanna and Brown have reconciled but remain in seclusion. Early Thursday morning Brown was seen leaving Rihanna’s Los Angeles home. If convicted the R&B star faces up to four years in prison.
