Arriving close to 30 minutes late….
Chris Brown entered a Los Angeles court room on Monday afternoon and plead "not guilty" to the felony charges against him, stemming from the assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna.
The douchebag singer's lawyers are said to be hammering out a plea deal with the L.A. District Attorney's office, as they are trying to avoid a court case at all costs.
Asked about a plea deal on Monday, Rihanna's lawyer said, "I believe there are efforts by all parties involved to resolve this case expeditiously. That would be beneficial to everyone. Rihanna would be pleased if this case were resolved quickly and fairly."
The judge scheduled the next hearing for April 29th.
