Rihanna's Ex Boyfriend Chris Brown's Legal Woes May Get Worse

Rihanna's ex boyfriend Chris Brown has had a load of legal touble of late and it may get worse, his misdemeanor assault charge could reportedly be upgraded to a felony.

The 'Fine China' singer, who allegedly broke Parker Adams' nose when he tried to insert himself in a photograph that the singer was taking with two female fans outside the W Hotel in Washington D.C. last October, is due to appear in front of a judge in the city on Monday (07.04.14) with his lawyer, Mark Geragos, in a bid to get all charges against him dropped.

Chris' lawyer will ask the judge to dismiss the case on the grounds that prosecutors misused the grand jury system.

But prosecutors filed new court documents on Friday (04.04.14), obtained by gossip website TMZ.com, in which they explained they are taking the case before a grand jury, as they believe they have the evidence to support a felony prosecution.

They stated that the alleged victim's injuries were serious enough to require hospitalisation, which could be enough to get the charges upgraded and see the Grammy Award-winner face more significant time in jail.

If Mr Geragos fails to have the charges dropped, Chris, who was jailed last month after violating his probation stemming from his assault on Rihanna in 2009, will be forced to remain in jail until the trial begins on April 17.
