Chris Brown to come back to DC in June

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Singer Chris Brown will have to come back to D.C. in June for a hearing after his trial on an assault charge was put on hold again.

Brown will have to come back for a June 25th hearing to see if his bodyguard will testify after he's sentenced. Earlier Wednesday, Brown's trial was put on hold while a judge figured out whether or not marshals would take Brown back to Los Angeles.

According to WUSA9's Bruce Leshan, the judge vacated a writ that held Brown in a D.C. jail. U.S. marshals will hold and then take him to a Los Angeles jail for a case in California. Brown will be in handcuffs and leg irons for his long trip back to L.A.

Brown's trial was set for Monday but was delayed until Wednesday while lawyers tried to work out whether his bodyguard would testify. Prosecutors said in court document that they wouldn't grant Christopher Hollosy immunity to testify for Brown because he refused to speak after his conviction and they are concerned that he would lie. Hollosy also said he wouldn't testify until his own appeal is concluded, which could take months.

Brown and Hollosy were arrested in October after being accused of punching a man outside a W hotel. Hollosy told police he punched the man after he tried to get on Brown's tour bus. The man claims Hollosy and Brown punched him after he tried to get in a photo Brown was taking with two women.

Hollosy was convicted of assault Monday in a separate trial.
