Things are looking a bit brighter for Chris Brown — but not much.

Sources say he’s close to entering a plea deal regarding his misdemeanor assault charges resulting from that physical altercation in D.C. last year.

UPDATE: Chris Brown has rejected his plea deal. A trial date has been set for September.

Chris was close to copping a plea but the deal fell apart because the prosecutor and Chris’ lawyer, Mark Geragos, couldn’t agree on a statement of fact about the events leading to the alleged assault.

Chris has said all along … he didn’t attack the alleged victim last year outside a hotel.

If Chris had pled guilty to assault, he would not have to serve any additional time in jail.  Now it looks like he’s going to trial so jail is on the line again.

It’s unfortunate that Chris still has to deal with this drama.
